Jennifer- Good evening my friend. This is precious and priceless in every way. What a stunning capture and so moving. The baby on the fathers back is such an outstanding portrait. Love the black background and the B&W. That natural lighting is awesome and with the flash is perfect. I love the natural look to the picture also.

Incredible work.
