Joey and his mom

A beautiful looking day with clear skies and bright sun shine. Slept in late then off to a coffee shop. In case you’ve not experienced it, coffee shops can offer us extended family. Case in point is Joey and his mom. When she came in she politely asked if it would bother me if her and Joey sat in the chairs across from me. No problem I answered as Joeys smile already had my attention and I wanted a chance to photograph him. You could tell Joey loved life. He seemed to accept me right away and quickly wanted to share with me a few of his toys. But when Aunt Maggie showed up he zoomed around the corner and wrapped her in his arms, sharing lots of love with Aunt Maggie. Two other women showed up so before I left Joey had 4 beautiful women around him as he excitedly shared his smile with them, spoiling each of them in a special way. Thanks, Joey, for brightening up everyones morning at the coffee shop.

  3. Hi Monte,

    First off, congratulations on passing the test, that’s great news. No one had any doubts you wouldn’t.
    Second, these are really cute photos of Joey. I love the smile. Family photos and kids are some of my favorite subjects. Nice job!
