mothers touch

By Mrs_MacG
Dad had seen a similar picture we had on our website - but mum was very nervous about having their little one lay like this - She instinctively placed her hand under her daughters head and for me this actually makes the shot. A mothers touch.

Apart from the dad's left arm being cruelly chopped off, photographically speaking I'd be more worried about the lack of separation between the babies dark hair and the background and the disturbing end of the father's right arm.

I actually rather like the `chopped off' arms -- it's slightly surreal but it's obvious that the rest of the guy must be there.
