I recently found this post by iheartfaces, it details how to get the best smiles from children when taking photos.
This is great, because I have 5 nieces and nephews, as well my lovely girl Rona to take photos of.
Samuel and Charlotte especially make really cheesy grins when asked to smile.
Some of the tips are:
Say ANYTHING but cheese is my motto.
Or make I tell them to make their silliest face, and then answer their face with my silly face which produces a lot of giggles
Remember that not all smiles need to be toothy. I love a soft smile. As long as it’s real, sign me up.
So, go and check it out, this post is definitely worth looking at!
