Baby Boy

Photograph by Shannon Finney, January 2012, Washington, DC

There is nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby, and on the day that
 I first met little baby Justin, he was slumbering away. His stillness and
his smallness make him so vulnerable, and it was these two qualities that
made this photo for me. His father quite literally holds the life of this little
one in his hands. This fragility anchored in strength in a way sums up the
parent-child bond.
