"Each photograph is a story captured in a single moment"

Author: M.Lopez

Photography is capturing the extraordinary meaning in each ordinary moment, and weaving these strands together to tell a story – your story - to hold, to share, to remember.

...I have

"I have carried a child within my body.....I have comforted a baby upon my chest.....I have loved a child with all my heart....My body is not magazine perfect, but when I look in the mirror I see a mother, and there is no greater honor or blessing."

As I was laying with my 6 year old at bedtime tonight... all was quiet.... we had already said our prayers... we had already said goodnight.... I was just waiting for him to fall asleep when I heard.... I love you. The strongest three words ever put together...... and they made my heart swell. I gently said back.. "oh.. I love you too honey"
