We celebrate and walk our lives with them,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Shanthala Gorur Ashwath. “Whether it’s a group of relatives or friends or even pets, who we love to hang together in life is who we call family.”

“This moment feels so calm and still. I really enjoy how you framed the socks in the mountain allowing them to pop out from the darker background. It's reflective of family in very unique way.” — Independent Visual Journalist Jackie Molloy (@jackiemolloy13)

Sleep Like a Baby | Photograph by Shyam Prasad S.
.
“After three stressful weeks in the hospital since she was born, Avani was finally home. As she rested on her mother like a freshly bloomed flower with a dewdrop, a little bubble tried to escape her tiny little lips,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Shvam Prasad S. “To me, suddenly the moment went pregnantly quiet. I forgot to click, I was just soaking in the multiple moments of silence. I admired the beauty of this tenderness for a few seconds, and finally captured it.”

“So happy to hear Avani is finally home! This is a precious moment, captured so beautifully. Sometimes we need to stop and admire the moments around us and be in the moment.” — Independent Visual Journalist Jackie Molloy (@jackiemolloy13)

[ #WorldGiraffeDay ] Giraffe Silhouette | Photograph by Dries Alberts
.
“A herd of southern African giraffes in silhouette against a brilliant pink and red sunset sky. With their iconic shape, giraffes represent life in the clouds. They serve a vital role and feed on leaves not reachable by other animals,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Dries Alberts. “Family life involves living in a herd. When a young bull reaches maturity, he will wander off and try to conquer his own herd by fighting off a dominant bull. This is the cycle of life. Survival.”
—
“This is so beautiful Dries — this sunset is stunning and caught my attention. And then your inclusion of the silhouetted giraffes popping out from the bottom of the frame adds an excellent layer and elevates your photo. I also love how thoughtful you are in your caption. All together, this is fantastic. Well done. Very well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee
