Session with 100 year YOUNG grandma & family

Last week I had the privledge of photographing a family with their 100 yr old grandma.

She has been living on her own up until the week before. She got an infection and needed to have time to heal at Cresmont.

When Julie called me to book this session for her brother I was just amazed that her grandma was 100! She even told me that they took her to Disney last yr.

Needless to say, this grandma was amazing. She is not only beautiful but an inspiration to all of us. She doesn't even look 100 to me.

If any of you know me personally, you know I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Did I cry at this session? YUP. It was so touching to see the love for this woman, and her spirit was wonderful. ( So if I cry at your session you will know it is just natural for me!)

I have two grandma's in their 80's and so naturally I thought of them as I was photographing this family. I hope my grandma's live this long, I can't bear the thought of losing them someday.

Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your family. I hope that these photographs bring you many precious memories in the years to come.

( ok I have to go get a kleenex, ya I am crying again.)

Isn't she just beautiful?

This is where I lost it!! But quickly regained composure!

I love this picture. I have one of my grandma's hands on my website and it is our family's favorite picture.

See that box under here? You can leave comments. I bet this family would love to see comments from you!

Gorgeous photos! I am the same way - Italian and all emotions. I would have been crying too.
