i heart faces ♥ celebrating mom

This week's theme at i heart faces is "Celebrating Mom". I knew immediately the perfect image to enter!

I have been slowly building up my newborn portfolio for launching my photography business. Each session has been full of challenges, disappointments, learning experiences, and occasional successes. This session was no different. Baby Sam was so beautiful, but he was not really interested in being away from mom's loving embrace. At all. We spent more time on breaks than actual shooting. While I was waiting to try again I noticed the light falling down on mom and baby, it was just perfect. I snapped a few pics and the minute I did I knew it was right.


Later during post processing I was moved to tears by the connection I captured between mother and son. This is what I am striving for in my images, the emotional connection. I feel confident in saying this was a success. What an all encompassing example of motherhood...nurturing, loving, tender, caring, comforting. Baby Sam is a lucky boy!

(and I'm more than a little jealous that I don't have a similar image of myself and my babes during this special time)

Be sure to check out the other great and moving entries over at i heart faces. I have a feeling a Kleenex will be needed, but then again I'm a cry baby like that.

14 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:

Absolutely stunning...and I'm with you - I wish I had pictures like this with my two girls. I'm sure this mom will cherish this photo forever.

Perfect. It captures what we mothers spend 80 percent of our time doing those first few precious months.

What a beautiful image. Tender and perfect. Sometimes, often really, my best pictures are not perfect, but the emotional connectedness IS perfect therefore making them perfect :)
