I Heart Red!

In honor of Valentine's day, I Heart Faces' theme this week is red. 

I was trying to find a photo with a great splash of red and stumbled upon great picture of my mom.  Red is extra special to me and my mom. She has a heart condition and when she was diagnosed a few years ago, the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women entered our life.  
There is something about this picture which I love, not only is my mom wearing red, but I love the halo of red leaves around her.  Also, it makes me smile that she is healthy and strong enough to walk around the hilly park with me!
Again not the most artsy picture I have ever taken, but I love my mom's smile and the lines I ended up finding in the picture.

So my Valentine's picture is a picture of love for my mom and her strong heart!

More than anything- I believe that photography is about capturing a moment or an emotion... and that you did! All the best to you and your Mom!

Aw, love that you incorporated your mom in this week's challenge. Isn't that what photography is all about, capturing what means the most to us? Love the fall leaves and your mom's beautiful smile.

What a special moment captured. I love her smile. It's one that makes you want to smile back at her... even though it's just a photo. :)

What a great shot of your Mom ... sometimes the most treasured photos are the ones that aren't artsy! Capturing the wonderful memories of life is what photography is all about!
