This is a great picture and I love the lighting! I'm not that experienced but I'd like to see one or both subjects looking at one another instead of in the direction of the camera. It may create a better connection and emotion. #91924

Absolutly beautiful Karen! I love how the baby's hands are playing in the mother's hair. My babies all did that. I also love how the baby's head is gently tilted into the mother. It shows a certain amount of trust. #91948

beautiful shot, Karen, I like this one, but, I also like Ronalds Idea of having them looking at one another.
