25 Classic Kids Photos to Inspire You

Last year at dPS we launched a resource for people wanting to improve their photography of kids – something I know a lot of dPS readers have been asking for.

Today I was surfing on Flickr’s Commons section and my attention was caught by the many many shots of children in the section and particularly found myself marvelling at how things have changed in how we photograph kids.

I thought I’d showcase some classic kids portraiture – both for a little fun but also because I’m actually feeling a little inspired by a few of them and thought they might similarly give some fresh inspiration to others as they go about photographing their kids. Some of the shots are formal portraits, others commercial work, others what we might classify as ‘candid’ portraits.

I hope you enjoy them.
