Photography Tip for Real Smiles {One Shot} Galveston Family Beach Photographer

Sometimes I would like to share just one shot from a photo session. Not necessarily a “sneak peek”, but one shot that I’d like to say something about or share a photography tip. Hence the new category “One Shot”.

Getting cooperation from teenage boys during a family session is tough, I’m not gonna lie, but I’ve learned a few tricks over the years that almost GUARANTEE genuine smiles…

One of those tricks is to ask the parents to give each other a kiss. Almost 99% of the time the teen will look at them, look at me and then a real smile! You just have to be ready to capture it!!!
