Enveloped in Mother’s Love (WPC)

A Mother's Love.
A Mother’s Love.

I was wondering through the markets at Wala in the South Pacific, taking in the sights and sounds of the tiny island when I spotted this beautiful mother and baby. It was a very quick single snap and I’m so glad it turned out. To me, it’s such a heartwarming scene. She looks so happy and she clearly loves him.

  1. What a beautiful shot! You captured the love between mother and child… I also like how she’s looking off into the distance and smiling…what or who is making her smile?.. Very intriguing! Love it… You should write a short story about them: )

  5. This portrait encompasses all that photography evokes: it has a story; it captured emotions and beauty in a well composed and technically perfect shot. Kudos.
