Sometimes a little post shoot bribery is necessary, and for this loving family, an after session dinner proved the perfect family time and in-session motivation for some genuine enthusiasm.
For those on the spectrum, interaction comes hard. Smiles are harder, and eye contact might just be the worst. However, hamburgers seem to remain a universal good, at least for J. He’s the oldest child of this family, and I was warned before hand that I might not see a smile at all. His family and I teamed up, though, and through the powers of silly faces and the promise of hamburgers, I think we did pretty well. We even somehow managed to get a rainbow out of the day.
