When a mom/photographer creates images of their own child, even when the image is not technically an ideal photograph, of course the mom still loves it and the photographer inside her has to just temporarily and quietly step aside. We call that Mommy Goggles. There's nothing all that fascinating about these images - except that they are of MY daughter having fun at the park.
(Not feeling so much like a model this time around.
Oh well. You win some, you lose some.)
