             The moment Jacob and his mom took to the dance floor, you could get a sense of the love that only a mother and son truly know. Their smiles told a story, and their laughter could soften the hardest of hearts. It was like watching a movie, the guests sitting there in their seats, glued to the story that was being told.  

You could see Jacob and his mother talking to each other, but no one knew exactly what was being said. It was open for interpretation and I’m sure many guests were adding their own touches to the story they were seeing.

As a photographer, to see the kind of love and adoration I was watching is rare. I reveled in the moment as this photography gold was placed in front of my camera. I remember seeing this shot later and not even recalling that I took it. I remember going through the images and just staring at it and thinking, did I take this? I even took the step of checking the file name to make sure it was from my camera.  

            This image captures one of those moments where you need to be in the right place at the right time. I’m just glad I was there to witness it. In fact, I'm glad we were all there to witness it.  

Are there lessons here? Sure, don't be too busy, keep your eyes open, and always be ready because you might just miss that magical moment.
