I think my favorite type of portrait photography is taking almost candid shots of parents with their children. You can feel love in every look and touch. And there is not much that’s as sweet as a mother with her newborn baby. I had the opportunity to take newborn photos of Baby O and also snagged a couple of pictures of him with his lovely mama before the “official” shoot started. You can sense the care and gentle love in her hand as she cradles his head. And how sweet is her slight smile as she rocks her baby?
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT DEPICTS THE LOVE OF A PARENT FOR A CHILD.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
