Tips from an expert: Photographer Anki Wijnen van Zilverblauw #2

Children: they're undoubtedly the most popular subject for photographers everywhere. Every parent wants beautiful pictures of his or her child(ren), but how do you take beautiful photos of someone who won't stay still? In this second edition of her photography tips, Anki shows you how to capture your kids on camera.

Get down to their level
As an adult, you're almost twice the size of a child, so get down on your knees when you're taking their picture. This makes it easier to engage with them so that you can capture the world from their point of view. Children are pure and open and find it much easier to let people into their personal space than adults do. That means that you can get up close to your subject without losing any spontaneity. Take your photos from different angles and switch it up!

The details make the design
Of course, a child's face can tell you a lot about who they are, but don't forget the rest. Little toes, chocolate-covered hands, a close up of a tiny first tooth. Details like these don't just make great images, they make great memories too. People are inclined to forget details, so be sure to capture just how cute those baby curls are.

Say cheese… or don't
Never ask a child to smile for a photo, unless you want to see grimaces. Try to conjure a real smile. Play a game, make silly noises or tell your favourite joke. Children will quickly work out what your intentions are, so be honest. If you invest in making the photo shoot a fun experience, you'll get the best shots.

Photos of smiling faces are lovely, but no child smiles all the time. So take photos in the moments when a child isn't smiling. You'll be amazed by how much of their character you can capture in those moments. My favourite pictures of my own children are the ones in which they aren't smiling.

It's not essential that a child looks directly at the camera. Portraits in which a child looks away from the lens allow you to focus on those beautiful long eyelashes or cute little cheeks.

Patience, please
No matter how much we want them to, children won't be forced to pose. If a child doesn't want to be photographed, give them space. Be patient, let the child play for a while and then try again. Take your time and avoid making them feel pressured. Children often like to see themselves on screen, so let them look at the camera's display. This will make them feel involved in the process and they'll be able to understand what you're doing.

Don't miss a moment
Children's attention spans are much shorter than those of adults. So before you start, make sure you have everything at hand and that your camera is set up correctly. There's nothing more likely to spoil a child's mood or the spontaneity of a photo than to have to repeat a shot because you missed the moment. Be prepared so that you can react quickly to make the most of every opportunity.

Photographing children can sometimes be a challenge, but most of all, it's a lot of fun. So have fun, and good luck!
