Any child portrait photographers out there?

Hey everyone. I'm new to the site and wondering if there were any child photographers out there? It seems like much of the work posted is non-portrait photography. While I appreciate all photography I am interested in seeing some portrait portfolios.

Love tinabolton! My work is the same subject matter (usually), however I'm in the process of getting started on my own, so the pictures I've taken so far were for an employer so I do not own the copyright to them. So, the pictures I have posted in my portfolio are what I could find of my girls, family, etc.

I'm awaiting delivery of my Canon 20D TODAY (so excited), so you can be sure I'll be clicking away and updating my gallery. Is everyone only allowed one upload a day?

Anyway, just looking for some inspiration! Let me know of any good portrait portfolios. And feel free to comment on mine....good or bad!

Thanks everyone, I love this place!

Hi, and welcome. You could try the portfolios of Ukuwi, Paul Groom, Niamh and one other, name escapes me at the moment but you will find most people have taken some portraits of children. If you use the drop down menu in the gallery and select portraits/people you may find that helps. K.

You may find that a lot of professional child portrait photographers (myself included) do not put their work up on a public site like this.
I dont even have much up on my own site never mind anywhere else.

It is a sad state of affairs I know. but these days you cannot risk posting a child portrait whith out first getting written permission from the parent or gardian.

You could try mine, all the parents have given permission for their children's images to be used on my site, and some of them are mine (the children that is, all the photos are mine)

I know Wink

I have worked with Permajet for sometime on their Monochrome Pro inksets, they get to use my images and I get to be a reseller - want a discount on Permajet stock....?

I love the work of Michael Campbell, chrish4, and allsus. I love childrens portraiture and prefer to get them as natural as poss!! Plenty of kiddies in my pf - all with parental permission Smile

Agreed, I like Tina's stuff too - really excellent stuff.

Try these

Minx Photography. Nice simple portraiture - the way it should be.

Henk Van Kooten. Contemporary family portraiture. You have to dig deep into the site to find the really good stuff. Tip: When in the galleries, view all the shots, come out of the gallery and go in again - new shots will be displayed.

General portrait sites - good (well, I think they are) for general portrait inspiration

Rankin. Its a dreadfully designed site, but dig deep enough and there is some good portraiture there.

Perou. Some good modern portraits there.

Sacha Dean Biyan. Some modern fashion/portraiture. If you can put up with the over the top Flash on the site - its worth a look.
