How many muscles does it take to smile?


Bailee Brinkman from Glenwood High School is our featured 2016 Senior Model today!

About 43 muscles in a face are working to create a smile at any given moment. It is proven by Dr. Ekman’s research tool called FACS or Facial Action Coding System. Nobody has really come up with a definitive number for how many muscles it takes to smile or frown because one person’s smile is another person’s smirk. At Terry Farmer Photography we like to capture a natural smile just like the one here with Bailee.
