My Photos: Finding the Fun

There was a time when it was such a joy to photograph my daughter.  She had such a natural smile and a gleam in her eyes that would just connect with the camera.  Even if she was a little shy at first, after talking about school and her favorite television show for a few minutes, she would be back to her exuberant self.  As she got older and grew more self-aware, she grew shyer in front of the camera.  Each time I tried to take a photo of her, she would stiffen up and have a pained smile on her face.  This had been going on for at least 6 months.

This past week, I did a mini photo shoot of our daughter for an upcoming product review and I expected to experience the same thing.  I cannot tell you how pleasantly surprised I was.  She smiled, was natural and relaxed, and seemed to be enjoy herself. It was like all of a sudden she found the fun again.
