    This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mother-child portraits I have ever seen, Jean. The light is lovely and so is your treatment. And of course the tender, loving way Jessica is looking at Ezra is wonderful.

This is so very beautiful, Jean...both the image and the tenderness you captured. The natural window light and selected softness you used are ideal for this priceless moment of love and tenderness :)

Jean this is just wonderful. The kind of photograph that makes one catch their breath a bit when they first see it. I also want to type quietly, as to not break the quietness and peace of the photo. It is perfect.
