Embracing a Healthy Family: How Do You Get Your Child to Open Eyes for Photos?

How Do You Get Your Child to Open Eyes for Photos?

Youthful Tips


I think my two year old has learned that it's fun to annoy mom already by not cooperating with pictures. It never fails, she closes her eyes and/or looks up high so you can see up her CPAP altered nose (compliments of respiratory problems at birth). I try everything to get her to open them and the more I try, the more she thinks it's a game. The middle picture is an almost win on my side as you can see she started to open them but she had to stay in control!



I was trying to duplicate a picture pose and outfit that I have of my now six year old when she was two.


I love to take pictures and I had to buy an extra hard drive to keep the over 10,000 digital one's I have. I'm sure it's more than that but I lost track. My house is also full of them and it's a good thing that I have a lot of wall space.

Anyone have any special tricks to get them to smile AND keep their eyes open?

I wish I knew! In fact, I'm looking forward to hearing tips you find out because I have the same problem with my almost-3-year-old. As soon as she smiles, her eyes are closed. Or else she just doesn't smile and sits there pouting instead. Makes for some great pictures.
