Beautiful. I love how mom has that noble look as she looks out. The baby in her arms safe and protected. That textured background is beautiful and dos'nt overpower. In these pictures I am always drawn to the eyes and the facial expressions. This is gorgeous Kathy. Have a wonderful weekend my friend. #1562706
