The theme for the April photo challenge over at www.rocktheshotforum.com is “Motherhood”.
As soon as I saw the theme, I knew I had to enter this photo. This is an “outtake” from a breastfeeding session I did for my lovely friend Cat and her gorgeous little daughter Jazmine. In fact, I didn’t even realise I had captured it until I downloaded my photos and found this little gem sitting there.
To me this photograph sums up motherhood completely. Because motherhood is crazy and chaotic and hard and challenging… but every single bit of it is infused with this – just this pure love. Just this eyes-squeezed-shut, soul-filling, heart-bursting, totally-pure, utterly-beyond-words love. This photo expresses what cannot be put into words.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
