Gabrielle Union Shares Never-Before-Seen Pics from Mommy-and-Me Photoshoot

Gabrielle Union’s mommy-and-me photoshoot looks straight out of a magazine.

Yesterday, the 47-year-old actress shared a series of never-before-seen snaps of her 1-year-old daughter, Kaavia, on Instagram. The slideshow features four different pics of the duo having an at-home photoshoot, and just like her mother, Kaavia is a natural in front of the camera.

Union wrote an inspiring caption that read, “Protect them. Love them. Support them. Encourage them. Fight for them.”

The professional-looking photos might surprise some fans, since Union previously arranged a photoshoot for Kaavia that didn’t go so well. In early May, the actress shared a slideshow of images featuring the toddler making an “I’m so over this” face as her mom tried to entertain her. Hey, everyone has bad days.

During quarantine, Union has been documenting several notable occasions on Instagram. In addition to the many faces of Kaavia, the proud mom also celebrated her stepdaughter Zaya’s 13th birthday over the weekend. Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, threw a medieval-slash-pride themed party for Zaya, complete with full-blown costumes that look straight out of the Middle Ages.

So, has Kaavia been practicing her modeling skills? Or did Union bribe her with her favorite snack? Either way, it’s working.
