OK, I may be biased. The photos shown here are of my great-niece.
She is by no means camera-shy. She likes being photographed. But her pictures don’t come out nice when she’s posing. When asked to smile, it’s not natural, looks forced and artificial.
It’s different when I take candid shots of her. Able to capture her reaction, facial expression is priceless. This is why I love taking photos of children. They project images so pure, so innocent no other subjects can offer. Simply adorable, simply cute and lovable.
