A Mother's Love

I took this week's photograph while I was in Kenya, Africa in July of 2009.  It's actually one of my favorite pictures that I took over there.

6771_1204551072399_1187288064_625330_6242006_n.jpgThis was taken through the window of a VCT clinic.

I love the vivid colors in the photo.  The mother's dress is so beautiful, but so is the rich and beautiful shade of their skin.

Yes, the baby is crying.  He may have been ill, which was why they were in the waiting room of the clinic, or he could have easily been tired or hungry instead.

My favorite part of this picture is the look on the mother's face.  She's smiling at her child like she is so proud of him.  Even though he's crying, she is eager for me to photograph her child because she loves him so very much.  A mother's love is a beautiful thing and I'm so honored I was able to capture that in this picture.

I could look at this picture forever.  So lovely.
