There is nothing quite as strong as the bond between mother & child & I think you have captured that perfectly here.

It seems to me like this photo needed some major cropping, as it is full of noise and artifacting. The moment itself is precious and tender, but I can guarantee it's suffering because of the technical nature. Time to put some money away for that long zoom. hehe.

Wonderfully emotive! I love the textures and colors! The lighting is a bit harsh coming straight down. This is a photo to be proud of.

This is a really nice capture. It just seems ever so slightly washed out to me, so perhaps a contrast increase would put some extra life back into the shot?

A great moment! Very sweet subject, and it seems perfect technically. I love the lighting and the look on the baby's face.
