Behind the Smiles

Elia never objects to having her picture taken. She likes it, in fact. She’s always ready to strike a pose and has fun letting me photograph her. It’s so in her nature to be smiley.

If I ask, she says yes.

JJ always objects to having his picture taken. He views picture-taking as an inconvenience; another request to do something that is not of his choosing. At best, he tolerates it and forces a smile.

If not, the camera captures only a half-hidden, all-grouchy face.

If I ask, he usually says no.
