The warmth of light that comes from within.

There's a particular sort of warmth that comes with watching a family grow before your eyes.

The day they became a mother and a father

and then the morning they celebrated while a sister was just so tiny within

and then the night he once again held his wife as they welcome life into their arms again.

And while some of these images have been made in dark  of night and others in the glow of summer and just recently as the leaves made a blanket around us, the beauty lies deeper in the light that is, simply, them.
