You might guess that this picture is a very lucky candid, being how rare and difficult it is to get a 15 month old child to both look at the camera and smile. But if you must know my tricks, this shot was a split second after I called out, “No Jayce. Don’t throw your ball into the bean field.” He gave me his most mischievous grin before promptly launching the ball right into the beans.
But I had my camera with me, so the joke was on him.
