real smiles...

I hate the fake smiles children produce when they think they should smile but don’t have a reason to, so I work hard to do or say something to get a real smile. 

With one of these photos it was super easy to get the smile(s) but with the other it took a while. 

The harder it is to get a child to smile (for real) the more I love the image afterwards and the bigger the parents’ smiles when they see it. I so love my job.

Can you guess which child was the reluctant smiler here?  It is one of my favourite images of the year.
