This is for Dale's Challenge! Meet Everett, my youngest grandson, and his mother Kristi. He was tired after walking a long way on the beach, so he was in a cuddly moment! #1488278

Awww what a great addition to the monthly challenge. I love the colors and warm light in this! :~) I do wish they were a bit more in focus...they seem soft, but it works as a dreamy feel. #10339996

Great addition to the challenge. I actually like the focus here which is narrow but highlights the subject well as the BG elements all get very soft. #10340738

Ah, a story image and it works so very well Beth. Did you shoot this for the challenge or was it one you already had to hand. (I know! A pretty weak pun.) #10341153

Beth Spencer September 25, 2012

Thanks everyone, I got this almost 2 weeks ago when we went to Texas to visit them.. I took so many pictures, just trying to get started on them. I did have the challenge in the back of my mind, but this is one of those moments you don't want to miss and I am sure several years from now, Neil and Kristi will be glad to have this one. #10341341

Fits the challenge perfectly, Beth. I just love to see children sleeping so soundly in their parents arms. Nice color, too! #10341352

little childrens hands are just so cute .... I like how you capture these sweet hands holding on to his mama. #10341386

Dale Hardin September 26, 2012

A moment we've all experienced and cherish. You've captured it well, Beth. #10342330

Beth Spencer September 26, 2012

Thanks Rita, Debbie and Dale. I go back to work tomorrow, yuk!! I so miss this little guy, and will get some more pictures up hopefully soon... #10342893

congratulations on the EP Beth...this photo brought a lump to my throat and a tear forms in my eye as I write this message. A wonderful tender moment between mother and child...a wonderful memory- thank you! p.s. still crying... #10346793

Thank you Kristin, we never realize at the time how fast these moments are actually gone, but yet they live forever in our hearts. #10348180
