Weekly Photography Challenge – Portrait of a Child

Over the last couple weeks we’ve featured several articles on photographing people and doing portraits. Our newest eBook on How to Pose Portraits is a smash success – grab it here now!

The weekly challenges have also been portrait related, so to continue that theme and finish off our portrait deep dive, this week’s challenge is Portrait of a Child.

Last week we had Portrait of a Man as the challenge – you can see the great submissions on that post, and some manly portraits in The Essence of Masculinity – Portraits of Men.  The previous week it was the ladies in the challenge, well ladies first you know right? See some Inspiring Portraits of Women here for ideas.

Here are a few children’s portraits to get you started:
