Challenges of Photographing Young Children

Photo: Studio M / Michael Spengler Photography

I almost titled this post "It's Not Easy to Shoot Little Kids," but I didn't want to offend anyone's delicate sensibilities. "Shoot" as in "photography," of course - and it certainly isn't every photographer's cup of tea to evoke the best work from bored, irritable, nervous, and infinitely unpredictable youngsters. To successfully photograph a group of children, as in this video of a catalog shoot showing the professional work of California photographer Michael Spengler, you have to be as entertaining as Sesame Street, as nurturing as Super Mom, and as patient as Mother Theresa. It's a master class as we watch Michael on location, playing Pied Piper to evoke the most playful spirit in his young models.
