Stunning portrait and beautiful lighting. One's eyes go over every detail like poring over a work of art. Great capture and a great tribute to the model.

these kinds of shot really do it for me. There's a truth in them - not posing, not acting - realism :) I love it.

This image reminds me why I love photography so much...To capture the true spirit of a person, that they may forever touch our hearts!

This is the best portrait I have ever seen!
See, when you do what you love, with a person you love, you are beyond perfection.
Such a polite beautiful image!

Incredible!!! Literally brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing this remarkable image, and the story about "your hero"!

I understand that love of a parent! I lost my best friend, my Mom, almost 20 years ago.
