Things intelligent adults say to try and make kids smile in a picture:
Hey! Hey!! Hey!
La la la la la la la la la
Grown up people yelling, flailing body parts, making faces, all to get a child to look at them.
Really foolish but for some reason it’s parenting skill #1,542 that you must have.
Taking pictures with one child can be challenging.
Throw in a few more kids and you’ve got yourself a real party.

I now present to you, “The Cousin Pictures: A Contrast in Feelings.”
Ahhhhhhh! So close. Three children looking, two children pointing out passing adults who might be willing to rescue them and take them away from these awful adults who keep yelling at them.
Oh no, the tables have turned, now it’s only two who are looking and the littlest one thinks everyone is crazy.
I think these are my favorites.
I call them, “A Portrait of Misery Meets Joy.”
A mercy peek to see if there’s been a change.
Is his misery making her happy? We might have some issues in a few years.
Two kids smiling at the camera, one smiling at the other, a happy baby, and a gorilla.
