My favourite time of the year is when my children’s grandparents come to visit… my parents come from the UK once or twice a year (i’m very lucky to have travel loving oldies) and Paul’s folks in Melbourne also come whenever they can.  It is such a joy to have them around for the day to day business of living, helping with the kids and filling up their reservoir of love and attention.

So I was delighted to capture this family with the focus being on Granny visiting from South Africa!  


I read recently this quote about grandparents.

“The idea that no one is perfect is a view most commonly held by people with no grandchildren.”

Doug Larson

So true.  I know my own parents are blinded by their adoration of my children. Even when they are running amok after a Granny sanctioned lolly binge, my mother’s response will be,”look at these dear children, so adorable, so full of life”  O_O

This was a very easy and relaxed mother’s day session to include the gorgeous grandparents and uncle of adorable baby S (also photographed here and here!)  Lots of joking around and love in this family, a delight to capture! These three were so obviously besotted with the latest addition to the family!
