Kids Photography: Trying to keep a straight face, and failing

Boys have a thing about not smiling for photos. We think it’s a ‘macho’ thing that happens – wanting to look tough and strong. Sometimes it starts when they reach the teen years, but for some it’s earlier. Serious face photos are great, but so are smiles! For those boys that we seem to not want to ‘smiling for the camera’, we enlist the help of siblings as we did for younger brother, Sam. He tried SO HARD not to smile for the camera, but we knew the moment he looked at his older brother he wouldn’t be able to contain himself!

Then there was the ‘squish contest’ between the two older brothers and their younger siblings between – lots of fabulous smiles and laughter! Parents love photos like this – when everyone is enjoying each other and having a wonderful, fun time.

We took these kids photos using natural light from the window, a plain wall, and lots of giggles. We love the simplicity of the background, allowing the interaction of the kids to really shine through in the photography.
