Photo and caption by Denise Petti

Toddler kisses are often hard to come by, especially on the beach in the wee hours of the morning. Denise Petti managed to capture this spontaneous moment of tenderness - saggy diaper and all - between her husband, Neal, and their eighteen-month old, Gianni, early one summer morning on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Location: Corolla, Outer Banks, North Carolina, USA
