Child Lifestyle Photo: Baby "B," 3-months-old, San Francisco, CA (Saturday, January 23, 2010)

In culling through photos from a recent photo session, I originally passed over this photo.  But now I find it to be one of my favorite child lifestyle photos, a mother comforting her baby as he is about to burst into tears. This photo stirs up emotion in me especially being a mom myself.  I just want to cry with Baby "B" every time I look at this photo.  And to see his mom gently nuzzling him at the right side of the photo, is very comforting.  I feel this photo captures the true essence of a child lifestyle photo.
