If the kids start smiling all fake-y fakerson, I usually ask them to do UGLY FACE!!!! and then immediately following we are back in business with real smiles. Works almost every time. Definitely works better than me saying, "c'mon, use your real smiles" which works 4% of the time and usually leads to someone crying. "This IS my real smile! You just don't like my real smile! *CRY CRY CRY!!!*" No. That method is extremely counterproductive. I mean, I've heard this. Not that this has ever happened at one of our photo shoots before. NEVER.
Turns out the silly face pic pics usually end up being my favorites. They're a funny crew.

It was a pretty fun way to spend a couple hours on a beautiful Sunday. New pictures for the mantel-check!
