Cheeky Smiles / by Elise Manahan

I highly encourage cheekiness in my clients. I mean, how could you not?

This little Kiwi was a guest at a party I had the pleasure of photographing. I had been taking photos in another room when I noticed she was playing peek-a-boo with a balloon, checking to see if I had noticed her. I was able to move around to get a few frames before it was time for cake and she ran to join the others. It was an adorable moment of playfulness that I loved being able to capture.
