I think one of those things photographers are weird about is telling you their secrets about how they get people to pose in their pictures. It can be a tricky thing to try to bring the life out of people standing in front of a camera without letting them feel like they're just not cutting it and their pictures will be totally lame.
I think that's dumb. Do you have any great ideas? Let's share. Please, no saying of things that rhyme with "cheese" or jumping pictures. Oh, I've done my fair share of jumping pictures...and I'll still use jumping as a method to get what I want after the jump. It's just that it's rare to find a person that actually looks good jumping, you know? Though it is super funny when you somehow snap one right as someone lands and their cheeks haven't caught back up to their face yet. I'll keep those to myself.
The Tip: After-jumping is the cutest moment ever. Recently I've become rather fond of the "jump up together and then as soon as you land, squish Lily"
