Photographing Kids At Home

I'm no expert child photographer, but I have strong opinions about it. Namely, I am passionately opposed to ridiculous props and heavily styled baby photos that simply treat the child as a prop in an otherwise complex scene—which is usually a scene that's emulating another artist's work, as well. Who wants their kid photos to look like everyone else's? That's why I think the best method, by far, is to photograph a child in his or her natural environment: at home. It's a great way to tie those memories of youth to the places where many of them happened. When you document your child in your home, you end up with a richer record of that fleeting youth. Anyway, I'm a big fan of the idea (clearly), so I am happy to point you to Lynsey Peterson's how-to guide at DPS about making portrait photographs of children at home.
