Model Answer:

Thank you for this nice cue card topic. While taking a photograph at a family event, everyone had to smile at me as I pointed the camera to them. In fact, without smiles, photographs remain incomplete. So, to make the photos complete and better, a smile is a must. And the people who posed for the picture smiled at the camera to get happy faces clicked. This cue card questions remind me of the day when I clicked a beautiful picture for some of my relatives. I will describe the matter here.

The event was arranged marking the 19th birthday of Adaliz, my cousin, here in Hamburg. The event was nice and all the family members gathered here. The event was held on the rooftop and the place was decorated nicely. Some traditional foods were prepared for celebrating the event. And finally, it was the time to take photos. Some took group photos while some took a solo. I helped a group of cousins to take some group photos and they smiled at me (camera). 

It was more than a birthday party. A family gathering would be the best term to explain the event. The event was participated by almost all the relatives of my family. I went there with my parents and other siblings but had to be busy with the photography of the event. Everyone was asking me to take photos for them. And I was gladly meeting their needs.

Unhappy faces are unexpected and so people smile when they pose for photos. So, when I said that I will take group photos, everyone agreed. When they posed, they smiled so that they look beautiful on the photo. Actually, without a smiling face, it is close to impossible to have some good photos. Hence, they smiled. When the photos were printed, the smiling faces really looked beautiful.
