I love multigenerational sessions. There’s something so special to me about seeing someone who has lived 7+ decades and has the stories and life wisdom to prove it, interacting with someone who is coming up on their first birthday. The dichotomy of age and of appearance are so intriguing to me. The wrinkles and the soft baby skin. The seasoned, knowing eyes and the curious gaze of the child. Old and young.
This was one of those sessions that reminded me why I do what I do; of the real reason I go to these sessions and continue to press the shutter. To capture these moments. To document a great-grandma, snuggling her great-granddaughter. To freeze these moments so that when that great-granddaughter is 50 or even 80, she’ll still have that photograph to look back on, to recall a day when 4 generations were gathered to celebrate life.
To the Ryan Family – thank you so much for having me come and photograph you when you were all together. It touched my heart, and I hope you love these images. xx, Laura
Here is Anika with her great-grandma and then her grandma. So much love for this little girl!
