Saint Marys Child & Family Photographer | Grandma and Me

March 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me use the hashtag #existinphotos, inspired by the amazing Sue Bryce (you can read more on the CreativeLive blog). It's so important that no matter how many pounds lighter, or years younger, or however else we wish we looked, that we still allow ourselves to be in photographs, if not for ourselves then for our children and grandchildren, family and friends. I have very few photographs of my grandparents, let alone me with my grandparents (all of whom have passed), so I make sure I take the opportunity to capture pictures of my son with his grandparents whenever I can, even if they aren't a fan of the camera. And if you aren't a fan of the camera, hire a professional who understands light and angles to make sure you look your best, you won't regret it! Or if you're the one in the family always behind the camera, make sure you get in the pictures too. Hand over the camera to someone and ask them to take your picture (or better yet, hire a professional!)

 

So you can imagine my excitement when my good friend talked to me about surprising her mom for her birthday with a session of just her and her grandkids. What an awesome gift, not only for her mom, but for her kids too. They will cherish these pictures for many years to come! Here are a few of my favorites...

These two had the sillies that evening so we saw a lot of tongues.

We still managed to get super sweet portraits though.

This one may be my absolute favorite from the session. Their laughter is infectious!

After the giggles, I was able to capture this sweet portrait.

At the end of the session we went down to the waterfront as the sun was setting. It was such a beautiful sunset!

 

And now I think it's time to do a formal session with my mom and my son when she comes to visit next! I would love to do more sessions like this with grandparents. It was so much fun!
