Hey Ralph, how I admire your choice of angle and tone to document this great moment! The relaxed face of the mother and the hand of the father converging on the baby with that healthy glow... so much joy and relief! Happy Mother's Day!!!

Wonderful series for this weekend, Ralph ... so well documented!
24 hours was a long wait for both you and the mother, and I'm glad to know you weren't cursed in the process of getting her shots. :D

Beautiful in all the ways that matter. The hand in the frame, loving touch, is so nice in addition to the mom and her new son.

Such a sweet and tender series on motherhood for Mother's Day, Ralph. You bring a tear to my eye. I never had children, but I was present for my sister, San G. giving birth to her daughter, who is about to give birth to her daughter next month, and it all comes rushing back, and I get so emotional over it. I have goose bumps on my arms just typing about it. Wonderful shares!
