For this challenge, I wanted to enter something authentic. So here are my parents. I asked them to step in front of my camera, in the middle of doing yard work, and this happened. They just do this naturally. ( It's funny, even as a grown "kid" I still can't help rolling my eyes when they do, but dammit, it is touching thing to behold. ) This August is their 50th wedding anniversary. I'm so lucky to have these people as my parents.

Congrats to your folks! I thought the shot touching and genuine even before reading your comments. So their affection comes across. The head kiss seems like those endearing ones.
