When it comes to child portraiture I don’t like telling a child to say “cheese”. I would guess cheese is not that exciting to a kid anyway. If the child smiles naturally that is great! I won’t tell her: “No! Give me somber!”
The cute child in this photo was indeed posing for me and I didn’t say a word to get this expression from her. Who knows what goes on in a child’s mind; it’s probably not Gouda though.
I was happy how the photo turned out, from her mood to the composition and colors.
It’s also on flickr
