Young Love

A stroll to the park makes for a picture-perfect moment.

Kelly McKusick was walking behind her son, Grady, and his friend, Aoife Hiniker, when she took this photo, “Young Love at Lakewood Hills Park,” which earned her third place in the People & Families category of our annual photo contest. The two kids were holding hands and deep in conversation on their way to the park. “It was one of those capture-the-moment things,” McKusick says. “I thought, ‘I’ve just got to snap this picture. It’s so cute!’” McKusick used the camera on her phone in the black-and-white setting and captured the shot she wanted. She has always loved taking pictures of her kids, but was especially glad she had her phone out to document this special moment.
