I love taking mum and baby photos and seeing the amazing bond between a mother and her child.  Mums often feel very self-conscious after having a baby and their bodies have new lumps and bumps and soft parts (believe me, I've been there!), but I think mum and baby photoshoots capture women at their most beautiful.  Babies couldn't care less whether their mum has an extra roll or two, they just love hanging out with their favourite person!  I think this photo of Alex and Felix shows that spirit of love, friendship and playfulness.  No, it's probably not captured Alex at her most perfectly turned out - her hair is splayed out behind her, her eyes are closed and she's scrunching up her nose! - but doesn't she look like she's having so much FUN?!  Her and Felix have the best time together.  They have their private jokes and their shared moments of ridiculousness and no-one can make Felix laugh like that except his mum (and maybe his dad on a good day!).  This is not a 'perfect' photo, but it's a record of a perfect moment and being witness to moments like these makes me the luckiest person in the world.
