[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is nothing more beautiful than a mom's beaming smile holding her baby and the bond of a lovely tender moment......

This lovely young woman and her child were photographed in Phathao village, north of Vang Vieng. Traditionally the baby was always snuggled up in an embroidered hand-woven sling and looked so comfy!! - and grandma was never far away in case she was needed.

They are from the Hmong ethnic, originated in south West China and over the centuries they migrated to Laos, Burma and northern Thailand. In the 1970s, many ethnic Hmong were recruited by the United States to help them fight the Laotian and Vietnamese Communists. Hundreds of thousands of Hmong have since left SEA, and nearly two hundred thousand of them now live in the US.

A delicious portrait of this young mother with her baby, a serene expression of hers, the baby seems so comfortable in that kind of bunch, whose color gives a powerful touch to the composition.

Hello Abmdsudi,
A great portrait of mother and child. The mother's face has a great, caring expression and there's also a sense of pride of her small child locked in her smile. I like the narrow framing a lot too.

Hi dear abmdsudi YTH

Very nice and lovely portrait for a Black Hmong mother.
There are so much suggestive implications inside. She seems to be 20 years old or less. I hope her and her children's future are bright and fruitful.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

With regards from Luxembourg


Hello Abmdsudi,
What a cute little baby! I love the colorful fabric of the carrier.

Hello Abmdsudi,
A splendid double portrait of this young loving mother and her baby.
You can see that she is proud.
Beautiful cloth in which the little one is wound.
Best regards, Paul
