I have a ton of photos of my three kids, but this is still one of my favorites. It was taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and that's an ocean wave surging over the glass panels in one of the aquarium exhibits. I didn't ask them to smile or pose; I simply waited until the precise moment that the wave washed over them. I love the look of pure surprise and delight on their faces as they heard the roar of the ocean and realized they were surrounded by water, yet safe. It captures everything that's perfect and magical about being a child.
