    Likely one of my favorite all-time pictures. My two oldest boys play on the same competitive baseball team. My younger son bats ahead of my older son in the line-up and hit his very first home run. I didn't realize the emotion and brotherly love I was going to capture when I photographed my son crossing the plate into the arms of his big brother.

    Just wanted to say thank you to all of you who commented and acknowledged this photo. It has been a very exciting week for me thanks to PW!

      Thanks so much for the info on the lens. I have a Canon 20D that I am excited to be learning to use and have mostly been using my 50 mm lens lately. Congrats on the beautiful picture and on raising such sweet boys! Thank you!!

      I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old, both boys. They both started ball this spring. The older in peewee and the younger started his first year of Tball. To add to the fun, my husband is coaching my oldest son's team. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to the years to come. Your picture and more importantly the story behind it made me smile through tears. I love it!
