    After my twins were born I struggled to love my body. I wanted a picture to symbolize what is truly important. It isn't what the scale says, it is all the blessings that are right in front of me. Two babies that love me just as I am. I now love my body and its extra curves and stretch marks. It carried and birthed two healthy babies!

    There’s been quite a few submissions of looking down at one’s feet. But this one is special, although it has the photographer’s feet in the picture. It’s not really about the feet. The feet put us right into the intimate daily ritual of the photographer, and the tight confined space with the toddlers further enhances the emotional nature of the picture. This is a picture that you can not only look at, but invites you to embrace it as well. -B. Yen
