I think most people will agree that it's lovely to have portraits taken with your mother. How much more wonderful is it to have your mother + your daughter + your granddaughter in the same picture.
When I announced my Mom & Me Model last month, I was hoping to get requests for at least one Generation Photography Session. I got my wish! Melanie was one of the mothers that answered it. She has a daughter, Sabrina, who has a daughter Claire. She asked if she could invite her mother for a generation shoot & of course I said Yes!
We held their four Generation Photography Session in Granite Bay a couple of weeks ago.
I love the photo below of Melanie hugging her mom - I can't help but smile when I see the joy in their faces!
Mary Lou, Melanie's mom, was tickled when she realized that she would be in all of the pictures.
Sabrina has a young son, Jack. It was so cute to see him enjoy time with his great grandmother.
My favorite part of our session was capturing their close family bond. What a blessing for Sabrina's children to have a relationship with their great grandmother, something many people don't have a chance to experience. When I took the photos of her with Claire and Jack, she said, "I am the luckiest great-grandmother in the world!" This brought a smile to all of our faces.
Thank you Melanie, for answering my Mom & Me Model call. It was such a pleasure seeing you again & meeting your mom for a special generation photoshoot.
