When having your picture taken, you’re accustomed to the phrase “smile!” So you constrict the proper muscles in your face to appear as though you’re smiling. Turn towards the camera and try not to blink. There’s a thought process there and it’s not natural. We see babies smile within hours of being born. It’s not taught, or learned, it comes to us naturally. So when a couple gets in front of my camera, getting that natural smile takes some work. I have a bag of tricks to shake some loose, but once in a while I get a couple like Maira and Dathan who’s got smiles for days! Whatever they whispered to each other, or look they adorned was working like a charm. They we’re silly and just comfortable in their skin, even with all the heat that day!
Thank you to the both of you for trusting in me and putting up with my bad jokes! Aaand I’m sorry I left the heat on that day you guys, I promise to try and keep it a prime 73 degrees on your wedding day! 🙂
