Dave reached out to me on behalf of his kids. They wanted to do something special for his wife and for their mother. I'm always touched when people reach out to me for this for two reasons. The first, obviously, is that I'm so very flattered to be asked to be involved in such a thoughtful gesture!! But secondly, and most importantly, photos are a gift that is not just for the receiver, but for everyone in the family and for future generations by marking a time in our lives, recording history, jotting down visual memories.
And how lucky could I be to work with the G. Family, to record their giggles and smiles and all the little moments in between with their youngest and oh-so-adorable granddaughter. Kids are my absolute favorite, and often a good workout for me too as I get to chase them around. In this instance though, her mom and dad got the real workout swinging her in the air for me! :-)
I hope you enjoy these images! Let me know what you think in the comments, and know that I would love to photograph your family as well!
