Photographers (at least not me) never say "Say Cheeeeese" to my customers!
Instead, I have a variety of things I say instead...
...like...."look off into the distance without smiling."
(P.S. Aren't these trees AMAZING!!! I am so happy that this senior wanted to climb into the trees
- they just made the most perfect photos!!)
"Look directly at the camera and smile"
"....and put your hand on his chest."
"Put your hands on your belly/Put your hands in your pocket,"
"Wrap your arm around her and look into each others eyes."
"Hold your flowers down and cross your arms "
And sometimes I don't say anything at all! :)
There is a lot that goes into creating a good picture - being in charge of telling people where to look/when to smile/how to stand/where to stand/what to do with their hands...is a small part of the photographers job to get you the best photo. (there's a lot more too!)
Just wanted to share some of my recent photo sessions! See more on my FB here!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
