Don't Say Cheese


I am so glad I haven't forced Robbie to smile for the camera - even though I've taken a billion photos of him. Now that he can start to understand basic directions like "hold up your stickers" he will do it without breaking into a crazed Charles Manson smile like so many kids are programmed to do. It's a long way from being the perfect model but at least he doesn't have that Pavlovian response to a lens that (as someone who photographs a lot of people) drives me crazy.

I love this, and you are so right. I do the same with my kids, and you know what? I love the non-smiley photos the best. They say so much, just like this photo of Robbie.
