Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a love for capturing moments. For some reason, photos have always been important to me. I was the kid in my family that was always trying to talk my parents into taking family portraits every year. I dressed my younger brother and sister up and took them out to take photos as well. When I first started learning how to make a good photo, I asked my grandfather, whom I’ve always revered, to model for me. He kindly agreed and wore his best suit. I photographed him by his barn. A decade has passed and so has he, and I cherish those images. The thing that breaks my heart is that I only have one image I took of him with my son, and I don’t have any of myself with him. If I had a re-do, I would have those images and more.
I feel like everyone needs portraits of themselves and their children with their grandparents! Grandparents are those special people in our lives that we sometimes take for granted, but they are some of our children’s greatest friends. How special would it be for every kid to have a beautiful picture to look back on that reminds them of how much grandma and grandpa love/loved them?
That was long-winded, but as you can probably tell, I’m pretty passionate on this topic. 🙂 Enjoy my favorite images from this session of L and S with their beloved grands! xo Kassidy
