Picking Your Moment

Sometimes, when you're shooting kids, you just have to pick your moment. This young lady was generally cooperative on the day of our shoot, but a slightly-forced smile kept creeping into her photos. (The photographer's fault, not the subject's!)

I tried the usual bag of tricks, but ultimately, packing up my camera bag was the first time she really seemed to relax. I said, "Hey, help me out. See that big window? That's really pretty light. Just have seat for a second before I go." She didn't have time to think too much, and we found a nice spot by a big window. We just kept chatting, and I think by that point, she was relieved to be done. I think it shows!
