    Heartfelt Photographs That Define Love

    What does love mean to you? A selection of images chosen by National Geographic from its photo community, Your Shot.

    Last month, National Geographic asked readers to submit photos of how they see love, which were submitted via its online photo-sharing platform, Your Shot. Out of more than 14,000 submissions, 27 made it into the final story, entitled Love Snap. Here are a handful of the selected images:

    "When Cecilia was born, we spent six weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She was barely 2 lbs., and we had never seen a human so small. I was very sick, and could not be with her the first few days after she was born. Her father was a loving bridge connecting our new family —he was by her side until I could be <3"
