Three Generations

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Simon Hodgson

This photo is of my wife immediately after giving birth to our daughter. My wife's mother was also with us during the labour and delivery. My wife endured 27 hours of labour, drug free, and when I saw the relief on her face when our baby was finally placed on her chest, I quickly grabbed my camera in an effort to capture that relief. I was also lucky to have captured the pure joy on my mother-in-laws face. Her family have said that this is the happiest they have ever seen her. Three generations of females, all no doubt will have the same stubbornness!

Location: Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia
