Shooting Your Own Kids (With a Camera, Not a Gun)

posted on 1st of march, 2010

So, I'm curious how many of us "Non-Professional" Microstockers take and sell pictures of our own kids. I classify myself as a "Non-Professional" simply because I have a real job and only get to do this on the side as a hobby. I truly love it, but just can't devote all my time to it.

I do love taking pictures of my kids, though. Most of them are simply snapshots (albeit, pretty good snapshots IMHO), but occasionally there are some really nice images that also have Stock potential. I guess having kids running around doing photogenic stuff is sort of like having a built in modelling agency.

Sort of . . .

Fultonsphoto - that's a great shot. I like his "angry" face.

I enroll family and friends, they make pretty good models :-)

I use my son as my sole model (for now) and he loves seeing his images online :0) He makes a pretty good model as well, this is my fav image where I asked him to show an angry face...

My grandkids love it and I love taking the pictures, so for now it works!
