Oh, you're one of THOSE kids...

One of my favorite assignments is the school portrait day at Mosaic School. This year it was even more exciting due to the fact that I got to make Ollie's first school portrait! I can only spend so much time with each kid, and sometimes it's hard to get them to smile so after shooting several frames I have to just move on to the next child. When it was Ollie's turn, I found myself trying to get a perfect smile out of him, and then decided to just let it go and treat him just the way I treat all the other kids... that's when he stuck his tongue out at me. Some kids have what I call the Reflex: it's a totally spontaneous reaction to professional photographers, and even if has never been seen before it will manifest itself on school picture day. I swear Ollie never stuck his tongue at us when we were taking his picture until this exact moment!
