A natural model
Kids are such natural models! All you have to do, most of the time, is ask them to pose for a picture, and they willingly do so. Of course, you have a few who are shy and try to hide behind their mother's legs, and others who put on a totally affected, cheesy grin, but just as often, you get a completely natural image that captures a lot of the personality of the child being photographed.
If you like photographing kids, Vacation Bible School is a gold mine.
