    I have 3 boys and also have just started my own business as a portrait photographer. While I did know some of what was in the book I picked up alot of great tips to make my job easier. Now I enjoy photographing my children and clients and also come away with some shots that I would have never thought to get without the ideas in this book. The only reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 was because I would have liked to have seen examples of what not to do. Before and after type of shots. If you take pictures of kids get this book! You won’t be sorry! :~)

    This book is simply too basic. I regret I bought it, as the other book that I bought is much more detailed and not so general. Its good for those who just started making photos, but for those that know what is shutter speed and aperture its really too primitive.

    When it comes to photography, people (especially children) are my weak spot. I have struggled and struggled to create shots that are worth showing to the public. When I found that Jim Moitke had released a book on photographing children, i immediately had to own it. The book was just what I needed. Throughout the book, Jim gives great tips on how to capture children’s images in a thoughtful, well-organized way. There are simple things like reminding the photographer that patience is a must (which is a good reminder for me), to actual technical guidance for the right lighting and posing. I especially like that all the photos have their “specs” so one can study what each photographer (not just Jim) did to create their masterpiece. Along the same lines, he also uses pictures from top photographers at […] I thought this was a bonus, for it let you see a variety of captures, finding ones that fit your style. If you’re a beginner, amateur or someone who just generally struggles capturing children at their finest (and I have 2 of them), then I strongly suggest that you purchase this book.
