Here’s a fairly typical pose. John is squared up and centered. No problem with the smile. His mother is even happier… no more tuition, well college, don’t forget graduate school. So by rule of thirds, this photo could be improved by moving off center. Squarely facing the camera is also static. So turn or change the angle on the shoulders. There were numerous photos taken [of course] so this is just a small criticism. There were many others that were just fine.
