i cannot even begin to express what this image does to me.
as a woman.
as a mother whose children are growing too fast.
one amazingly great part about my job is that photographing babies helps me fight off that baby hunger. i can hold and caress and photograph and then when the sleepness nights and colic begin i am off! much like a grandma. But then...nothing can prepare me for the moments of editing when my whole heart leaps at such softness and joy captured. my mind and my heart scream in unison...
