Photographer's Note

There is nothing more beautiful than a mom's beaming smile holding her baby and the bond of a lovely tender moment......

This lovely young woman and her child were photographed in Phathao village, north of Vang Vieng. Traditionally the baby was always snuggled up in an embroidered hand-woven sling and looked so comfy!! - and grandma was never far away in case she was needed.

They are from the Hmong ethnic, originated in south West China and over the centuries they migrated to Laos, Burma and northern Thailand. In the 1970s, many ethnic Hmong were recruited by the United States to help them fight the Laotian and Vietnamese Communists. Hundreds of thousands of Hmong have since left SEA, and nearly two hundred thousand of them now live in the US.
