Love + Strength

I’ve been busy shooting photos at my son’s preschool for the past several days, and I wanted to share one that I particularly like.  This is one of my son’s favorite teachers and her son, who also attends the same preschool (along with his big sister).  This little guy was diagnosed with leukemia in November, and I was lucky to get a few photos of him with his mom when they visited for the first time since his diagnosis.  Although this photo shows a gentle moment, this guy is so strong, and his mama’s love is fierce.

    A totally amazing image. I can feel all that love and it makes me want to go and snuggle my own babies. Nice work!

    What a beautiful picture!

    Indeed it shares a tender moment – one very strong little boy fighting the fight; and, one very loving Mother fighting the fight, beside her son, every moment of the way. Indeed, a Mother’s love is fierce!

    “Thank-YOU” for sharing! ~♥~
