Just to clarify, Bob: the kid's SMILES look too posed to me.
As if they had been told to "smile for the camera" way too often. That's when young children often get that phony, forced smile.
In the third image, however, your grand-daughter is smiling at you because she wanted to- it was HER idea.
And that's what makes ALL the difference imo.
I'm smiling at you because I WANT to Bob.
Now I'm giving you a big smile because I want to.
And now I'm laughing out loud because... Oh, you get the idea.
I get it
Abby is, unknowingly, mirroring her great-grandmother's gawd-awful grimace which makes her next to impossible to photograph with a natural, pleasant smile - a triggered response to camera stimuli. 'bout given up on that one.
