I wasn’t working per se, but I did go in to the preschool. I donated 5 fish, 2 Yellows and 3 Hammers, very pregnant Hammers. So now I have about 42 fish in the tank still. I went over to take the fish, and to take more “class photos.” The kids are cute, but very active and some absolutely refuse to smile for the camera. Some say “cheese” and this is what the mouth ends up doing.
Now, I am sure they think they are smiling, but that is not the shot Mommy and Daddy will want to use to order prints for the grandparents. We need to come up with a better word to use to make kids smile for pictures. Any suggestions?
It is an absolutely great feeling when a person (young or old) tells me they won’t smile, and they eventually do, or I am able to catch them off guard and make them smile for me. In the end, I was able to get natural smiles out of these three, but I had to work for it.
