We have been waiting :: Click! my eBook on How to Take Gorgeous Photos of Kids is released today!

We have been waiting and waiting and WAITING (well, I have been working and writing and photographing) and

this is it…launch day for my brand new ebook for Digital Photography School!

Click! How to take gorgeous photos of your kids is 100+ pages of information, examples, stories and exercises to instruct and inspire.

This is not just a rehashing of all that has been written on the subject of photographing kids, nor is it the primer on learning how to take photos in general. This is a book for parents who want to create more meaningful images of their own children with fewer photos taken. It is also very much a book for professional photographers at any stage of their career who want to learn how to work with kids and make that genre of photography interesting, fun and fulfilling.

I share my personal stories with you as well as my tips and tricks. Click! comes from my 16 years of experience in the business of photographing children and my 6 and 1/2 years as a mom with a camera. Yes, I use that term with pride because I AM a mom with a  camera. This book was written out of that love of photographing children. I was lucky enough to know a lot about photographing kids before I had my own, but now with Click!, I can share that with you.


In Click!, I also got to feature interviews with some people who inspire me with their kid photography on a daily basis. You get to hear in their words where they get their inspiration and see some of their own favorite kid shots.

The book will be available for a special introductory price of $19.99 until October 12th, 2011.



(Those of you hanging out for the Beyond Snapshots book to hit the stores, get this one too, it will be a perfect compliment to the other. More updates on the Beyond Snapshots book very soon. For now, it is time for Click! to shine. And remember, if you are attending the DC workshops in just a few weeks, a digital copy of Click! will be in your goodies bags!)
