I truly have a soft spot for those that come to me that are grandparents and are wanting to have a family session with their kids and their grandkids. I think it particularly strikes me because I never got to truly know any of my grandparents. I only knew my granddad who lived in England and met twice in my life. And so to have the honour of photographing beautiful images of these two generations, and capture the love and sense of family, does funny things to my heart. I love extended family sessions.
I met with Rob and his kids and grandchild on a sweltering and extremely windy afternoon. Fortunately, we found a bit of cover in a little forest of Silver Birch trees and I captured six adults chasing after a sweet little boy who had the world wrapped around his finger.
It was such a pleasure to photograph this family, particularly to capture the love this doting granddad has for his grandson.
