Why I Don't Ask Children to Smile for Photos
Updated: Nov 9, 2018
Recently a client asked, “Why don’t you tell my kids to smile.”
My response to that was and is, “Because it is not natural.”
Let me elaborate:
Asking a child, or even adults, to smile on command creates a stiff unnatural image that is not true to their personalities.
Allowing a child to respond to prompts, and interact who and what is around them, creates beautiful, authentic images that tells a story.
