Behind the scenes on child photo day

If you’ve ever tried to take photos of children, you know it’s not easy to get them to stand still, look at the camera and smile. Our photographers at a Compassion centre in northern Thailand had the same struggles while trying to take the photos of 60 children to send to their sponsors. Complete with photo bombs, shy kids, silly kids and kids who just want to be on the playground nearby, here’s a behind-the-scenes glance at child photo day in Payaprai Lao Jor.

Photo bomb!
