Happy Baby Photo Contest

I got an invite from my cousin the other day to "Like" her son's photo for a contest they joined. It's open to all babies and kids from 0 months to 12 years old. They just have to find a good picture of their kid with a happy smile, and post it on one of the photo templates. I got interested and thought of posting my daughters' photos, too. So, I read the guidelines, and found out the prize wasn't that luxurious, but for the fun and excitement of joining the contest, I searched for good pictures I can use. It has to be a solo picture, and the kid's clothes shouldn't have any brand, logo, or character on it. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good solo picture of my daughter with a happy and confident smile. Apparently, her shyness and aloofness shows on her pictures, too. She would only smile when she's with other kids in the pictures or if mommy and daddy is with her, but not on her solo pics. I got a bit disappointed. I have a pretty daughter, but can't join a happy baby contest because she's too shy to give a big smile on camera.

I´m sure you´ll have a cute picture of her even if she´s not smiling. But babies learn how to smile to the camera when they are a bit older. Don´t worry. I bet she smiles at you, when she´s in your arms.

Yeah, she's naturally a pretty girl. However, the contest showcases kids with a big nice smile to depict a happy baby.

Why do you underestimated? There is no prohibition to not smile, right? Give the photo provided. That's your child, not someone else. Natural and artistic.
