There’s nothing quite like that one little word to make people freeze, is there? You’re almost guaranteed the opposite reaction. Even if they force a smile, it always shows in the end result. Smiling on demand is like crying on demand. It just doesn’t work.
So I never say ‘smile!’ but people always do. Why? Because they’re relaxed and having fun. We joke, we laugh, we chat, we play.
Whether we’re on the beach, in a playground or up a tree, I try to make sure it’s fun. And it shows.
Maybe it’s because I’m just a big kid, and my toys are expensive digital cameras. Or maybe it’s because we’re not stuck in a studio with a red velvet backdrop, a bunch of dried flowers and punishingly hot studio lighting.
My portrait photography is relaxed, informal and true to life. Look around and see for yourself.
Then why not give me a call? I promise I won’t say ‘smile!’
But you will.
