I am so enjoying these mother-child portraits, Stefania. Everything about them, from composition to light to skin tones to the black background that sets both of them off so well is extremely well done. Beautiful. Congrats on the EP's and expect to see more on other images in this series as well as to see at least one big winner out of them.

The gentle movement of gold hair that they are caressing the face of the newborn.
The half open eye of the mom that she is observing incredulous her new creature.
The mom soft lips that contain a simple natural smile of joy for this moment.
The signs of his long journey that finally he is here... around us!
... ... ...
My simple words are not enough to be able to describe what I see in here Stefania.
What I think... what I am feeling ... what is coming from this frame ...
I am not the right person to describe all of that.
I have only one sentence that probably it will let you understand what are my meanings and feelings.

I wish that the day that my son Francesco was born you had taken this unforgettable moment of his seventeen hours of his life!

Thank you Stefania.

Ok Max...Here's one from me!!!

S miles bearing happiness sail across the faces
T ainted with love a mother’s gaze caresses
E xploring the comfort of a warm embrace
F illed with joy her tender heart races
A s she discovers a taste of Heaven in the gift of life
N othing is more rewarding than to hold a precious face
I n the glare of a smile that heals the heart
A nd nourishes the soul for an eternity.
