Moms always know the buttons to push with their kids to bring out the smiles. Moriah was right on it when we met up for a mini session with her son Keegan. She brought along some sweet family who made him grin and adventured around the park with him. He was a tiny bit shy with me at first but after she teased and poked at him again, he was shining with an awesome six-year-old-missing-his-front-teeth grin.
Here they are all together. The colors were just fabulous.
She was teasing away and finally he cracked and gave me a winning smile.
Mama love is always one of my favorite favorite things to photograph.
And I especially love it when moms let me take a few pictures of just them. Moriah is beautiful and what a gift to her boy to have portraits of her too. (Right now I am sure it's the last thing on his mind but there will come a day when he'll be glad for it.)
And that's a smile worth documenting!
