When we 'sprung' it on the kids that we were going to take some pictures for Christmas (my nieces and nephew, that is), the smiles vanished. And trying to get them back was HARD. Tanya was literally sweating from trying to get them to look at me and smile. I was giggling at the ridiculousness of their responses. I took like 50 pictures and maybe 5 were usable. These are perhaps the most photogenic kids on the face of the planet - except for that night.
