me too. She has lot's of lovely pictures with her kids. William was such a cute baby boy...

Sharon said...

I always feel kind of sad looking at young photos of celebrities and other famous people . . . sort of like, "If you'd known what was coming, you would have done things differently?" But I guess she would have done exactly what she's doing in this photo. :/

Haley Rogers said...

Love it.

Sarah said...

Why did I just tear up? I just can't imagine not seeing my son grow up - it's my ultimate fear.

Phew....but very lovely!

Beautiful AND heartbreaking. Can you even imagine holding this precious little person, your supreme love, only to kill yourself with wonder that he will "rule" an entire conglomerate of nations one day? I wonder if Diana ever thought like that. Yowza.

Beyond precious. A vision in stripes! :)

Me, too. She seemed like such a devoted mother.

Thank you for posting the photo

Its amazing how very young Princess Diana was when Prince William was born. The photo captures everything precious about Motherhood and Love.

I have instant teary eyes.

Great photo. I wonder how she would feel about Kate.

Claire said...

Her boys are now a testament to her mothering skills in the to few years they shared together.

So beautiful. It gives me a touch of sadness. Live in this moment now.

Alex said...

I have to agree with you :)

MamaLiza said...

I sometimes wish that one could still have momories way back when they were this small. I'm a grown woman and there's still nothing like curling up next to my mom and smell her sweet scent. I wonder how my children feel when I hold them. :)

Patricia Villamil said...

Very beautiful photo, it makes me want to hold my daughter tight (you just cannot take anything for granted)

There are so many sweet photos of her loving her boys. This certainly is no exception.

Winyan said...

do you have tips/gift guide for what to get new mothers? :)

HiLLjO said...

Your blog has made me feel and think a lot more about being a mom. I wasn't sure before, but it has helped me become ready to start thinking in the mindset of a woman who is going to have a child sooner than I thought. Thank you Joanna, for everyday, but especially for every Monday.

I've always loved that picture. It makes me want to hug my son even more.

TheBeautyFile said...

This is truly an amazing photo. My heart just sank looking at her. And also rose up thinking about what an amazing influence she must have been for those boys.....

Anonymous said...

Oh goodness - breaks my heart seeing that love, and knowing what is to come.

Also - she is stick thin in that picture. Knowing what we now know about her, it's bittersweet to see this beautiful picture of such a sick woman...

Beautiful!

osaka said...

It is pretty and she is lovely!

Jennifer @ Belclaire House said...

I have loved this photo for awhile too! It's so touching and as the mother of my own little boy I feel such an incredible connection with her in this photo. I love when my son let's me hold him like that, when I can feel his little warm belly and his breath against my neck. It's those sweet tender moments no one talks about, but we all cherish so deeply.

Beautiful

when r u starting gift guides??? :)

Akriti said...

Sooo sweet.. What a peaceful photo :)

Jessica Nichols said...

The power of a photograph is right here in this post and all the comments.

It shreds me as a mother to one child, a boy, who I love so much that only other mothers can understand and this photo gets without saying a word.

Also, this may sound bizarre, but I wonder what she would have thought of blogging and twitter and facebook and pinterest. I bet she would have loved it in a way.

Maria said...

So adorable...it's amazing how much he actually looks like her now.

I admire Diana's work, therefore the "Diana at 50" article in Newsweek shocked me so much!

giragirassol said...

Perfect photo. That´s all.

shonita said...

Beautiful capture.

As the mother of a very tall five-year-old, I so miss the days I could hold him like such.

This site is one of the best I have found :

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

1. Interior Design Seattle

2. Minimalist Interior Design

3. best interior design schools


I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
