Creative children’s photography

Here’s an idea for creative children’s photography that you are welcome to borrow or steal!

Parents love photo series of their kids. Whether you’re designing an album or a wall portrait, consider grouping multiple images of the same set-up to capture a range of expressions or emotions on a roll.

One of my most popular multiple photo series is what I call a pentatych. It’s a series of five, usually 6×8 images, printed on a panorama piece of photo paper. I like to leave between an 1/8th and 1/4 of an inch between each photo, and I think a white background for most series works best. Black is appropriate for some image groups.

To make this work, some element of the series needs to be consistent. In this case, I tried to keep the size of the child’s head consistent from one photo to the next.

I cut the mats about 1/4″ bigger than the top and the sides of each image. The mat “surround” is usually 2″ and I use a wide, brushed metal frame.
