I was forewarned that there was nothing I could do to get grandpop to smile. However, after finding out how much he talked to his grandkids, and how much he was in love with his "boys" I knew what his sweet spot would be. So, I just hung out far away from them with my telephoto lens on and let the interaction just happen. Guess what? I got a smile. :)
After we wrapped up photos with grandma and grandpop, we took some sweet pictures of mama with her boys. This woman is so very special to me and I am blessed to have been able to create these beautiful photos for her. Sometimes its so hard to get your teenage boys on board for a family shoot, but it'll be something both you and they will treasure in the future.
