I know that we have a lot of photographer parents out there that are regular readers on our site. I recently came across Kelly Willette’s Portrait Cookbook, which quickly helps you understand room settings and poses that will surely be frame-worthy. Such a great item to have as we’re all scrambling for the best shots of our kids to add to the holiday cards or as gifts for family members. Her Portrait Cook Books come in four books: Posing Children, Posing Siblings, Posing Families and Posing Seniors. The Cookbook is geared towards Children’s Photographers looking for more variety on poses and Mommies with cameras looking for inspiration. This is a fool proof guide for amazing shots.
The portrait Cookbook when purchased, comes in a downloadable zip file with jpg files of the cards and checklists sized at 4×5 and pdf files of the checklists. You receive 28 pose cards, 10 room cards, posing checklist, equipment checklist, how-to instructions and an example of a session from start to finish using the Portrait Cookbook poses. I was lucky enough to check out the Portrait Cookbook myself and have to tell you that I’ve learned so much already and I’ve only made it through a few of the poses with my daughter.
