I was shooting a family portrait yesterday... mom, dad and three boys. The two older boys were old enough to hold a pose and smile at the camera, but I had to coax a smile and proper eye direction out of the 1-year old seated on dad's lap.
Like any photographer, I resorted to waving a stuffed animal, making clucking noises and finally a raspberry. You know: lips puckered, tongue goes "ppppbbbllllttttt!".
It got the baby's attention but the 4-year old was dismayed.
I swore I heard him say, "I'm opposed to spit."
I almost hit the floor until Dad translated, "You're not supposed to spit."
