How do we get nice natural smiles? We act completely silly! Like really, really silly. If you've ever been in front of my camera, you will know what I mean when I say, I usually bust out the Monkey. Doesn't always work for the kids, but it always works for the adults. I think to be a great photographer, you need to be able to make people laugh. And by doing that, you just have to have no shame. This foursome loved the monkey, and it loved them:).
