I am sure you all know that child that says “cheese!” and then smiles with scrunched up eyes. I own one of these children. And no, I did not teach her to say cheese. As a photographer, I prefer to capture the natural smiles, not the forced (squinty-eyed) ones. Today as Hannah tried on her new hat, I employed a few tricks that I learned from fellow photographers…and much to my delight, I caught a glimpse of the real Hannah.
And this shot is for Daddy because he is out of town and missing his girls.
