Using Props to keep Children Engaged


Today’s feature is from .

Katie says:

“This session was a style shoot for a local children’s boutique. I love collaborating with others in creating styled sessions as it allows me to be creative and work with an array of children while providing the store with images they can use to promote their store and clothing brands.

At this particular session, we focused on a fall line of clothes for boys. I loved the preppy-meets-outdoors theme.”

Katie’s Photography Tip:

Photographing young kids can be challenging, and three active little boys even more so. To help with this, I suggest making sure you keep the children engaged.

For this shoot, we accomplished that by telling the little boys silly jokes, using humor, and encouraging them to play with the props.






Katie used a Nikon D800 with a Nikon 85 1.8G lens to capture these images.
