Baby Kaniel Playing at the Park by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

While visiting the Island of Puerto Rico, one day I took my niece and her baby Kaniel to the park for a photoshoot. It was a beautiful day, sunny and hot. The park was crowded and the beach was right next to it. While baby Kaniel was playing on the ground and smiling with mommy, I decided to shoot this lovely photograph. I placed the main subject to the side, trying to follow the rule of thirds.
