There’s research that tells us that spending time with grandparents is good for both the grandparents and their descendants. Studies say that grandparents who babysit live longer and it encourages a learning of family history in their grandchildren. Documenting the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren has always been important to me. I love observing their bond, and it always takes me back to my own childhood. This session was no different. Susie, a teacher, is off of work for the summer and loves getting to spend time with her grandchildren. She told me that every day with them is the best day ever. I was excited to get the chance to document one of these days.
I am a wife and mama to two little miracles from Morgantown, West Virginia. I've had a passion for photography my entire life, but when I had my daughter three years ago, I felt a deep urge to capture her every move. Her tiny baby feet and hands were changing every day, and I wanted a way that I could hold on to those memories forever. Photography is a gift that I provide my family with. I want my children to have authentic documentation of their childhood. I, wholeheartedly, believe that photography is an heirloom. I am living my dream by getting to know other families and telling their story through a series of photographs. I love to learn about, and document, what you love about your family. Babies change fast. The beautiful chaos of life is something you'll want to remember the rest of your life. Helping other families provide an heirloom for their children is my life's mission.
