I did a wonderful impromptu session with my friend Kim a few weeks ago. She was kind enough to allow me to stay at her home while I was shooting back-to-back jobs with her and Linda Martin’s company, Cache Connections.
I have enjoyed a working relationship and friendship with these lovely women for over three years. They are matchmakers, and take great joy in introducing Christian singles through Cache.
Kim became a grandma for the first time this past year. And Parker, her grandson, is the joy of Kim’s life! She asked if I would do a session with them, and I happily agreed. What could be better than photos of a smiling baby and an ecstatic grandma?
As it turned out… nothing!
The photos came easy: Parker is an especially happy baby, with a wonderful personality. He is nine months old, the perfect age for baby photography. He is able to sit up, and his expressions come steadily as he interacts with his family.
The last time I photographed Parker, he was still in his mom’s belly. So to see this bundle of fun was especially rewarding. Watching him interact with Kim and Grandpa Ed, and documenting the very special relationship they share, was priceless.
Time moves too quickly. And seeing Kim and Ed enjoy Parker reminded me of the uniqueness of the grandparent-grandchild relationship. It was time well spent.
I am especially honored to have been invited to record several generations of the Whitaker family.
