As Elana Blair explains,

I will admit it. I love head shots of children. I enjoy getting close to kids to capture all the sweet details of their faces. My clients love it too, and I aim to capture head shots during all my shoots. In addition, ninety-five percent of the time, clients buy prints of the head shot images I provide. When you hear the phrase “head shot,” your mind may conjure a boring, stiff image. Well I am here to show you how I approach head shots in children, and how I keep them creative and interesting!

Take a look at the beautiful photos at Clickin Moms and the tips that will help you catch similar ones yourself.
