At a family reunion in Texas my cousins kids were happily playing together in a corner of the room. I went over and got some cute mug shots but also wanted something more creative. I asked, if I was a movie star photographer how would they like to pose? I had no idea what they would come up with as the boys grabbed their toy guns and pretended to shoot their sister. The fact that she seemed to care less makes the image more compelling. What works for me is the images symmetry and mix of 'adorable' vs 'disturbing'.
