Beautiful B&W! Such a touching moment captured. It is so sweet of the other little girl to comfort her, very moving.

There's a story behind every image....the one WE see, and the one the photographer sees. I went from one emotion to the exact opposite after reading your description.
CONGRATS on your win, Jorja. Fabulous image!
