i ordered one of these portrait lookbooks a few weeks ago and i'm finding it a really cool tool to have in my camera bag. it has tons of different ideas for babies, kids and families which is a huge help when i've got a session coming up and i'm feeling less than inspired. i try not to concentrate too much on what other photographers are doing and try not to compare my work but this flip book is more about getting some ideas for your session, not trying to copy poses that other photographers have done. i highly recommend it, even for the amateur/mom photographer who just wants better photos of their kids. flip through this a few times and it will force you to to try new poses and locations and ideas.
