Which one are you more likely to smile at?   Think about your one year old, does he naturally smile at the camera the way he smiles at you?  No way!  One way to get a more natural looking smile of your children is to stop looking through the camera and actually look at them.  Make eye contact.  Smile at your child.  They will smile back, as they always do.   Try it out and tell me what you think.  I’d love to see your photos!
