Ever come across a photograph that made your heart stop?

My beauties were at a wedding several weeks ago. The music beckoned, and the photographer, Dory Tuohey, caught mother and child at just the right moment -- mid-dance, just as Betsy wrapped her shawl around the baby.

A picture for all time.

Happy New Year, everyone. And thanks for checking in with Naperville Now this year. I have appreciated your kind and thoughtful comments.

Keep dancing.

That one is a keeper - to be enlarged - to be shown off in a prominent place!
I don't know how I've missed your posts, but I think I'll remedy that, as I really like what I've read so far!

Magic. The expressions on both faces and that lighting is perfection.

I just read your "about moi" and we left Atlanta to end up in Chicago. What a culture shock that was! But as I look back on it, it was a very important learning experience.

What a beautiful photo! It is not very often that a shot like that comes along. Glad someone was there to capture it!!
