As someone who had an incredibly close and special relationship to my grandmother, I am very emotional (though I always hide it and remain professional, I promise) when I have the opportunity to photograph little ones with their grandparents.
I always think, if the little ones grow up to be anything like me, these images will be some of their most treasured possessions. And the same goes for the grandparents - I can just imagine them spending hours marvelling at the meaningful photographs, proudly showing them off every time a peer comes over for tea and biscuits.
There is nothing quite like a grandparent's love for their grandchild. One can see that in their eyes and it always melts my heart.
They say only the best parents get promoted to grandparents! I like to tell my clients that involving the grandparents in their baby's photo shoot is one of the greatest gifts they can make to both their little ones and their dear parents.
