Janine reached out to me about a portrait session prior to my maternity leave. She said that her mother and her grandmother were coming to visit later in the summer. And seeing as her grandmother had never met her daughters before, she thought it would be really cool to have a portrait session with all of them while they were in town. As a person that understands how special grandmothers and great-grandmothers are I was more than happy to oblige and was very excited about the sweet generational portraits.
Due to our unpredictable Kentucky weather, we had an interesting time actually setting a time and we knew that we had two dates to work with which kind of limited us but was okay. Plans for Monday were drowned out by another summer flood, but when we woke up Tuesday for our Plan B it was an absolutely beautiful day!
We took a few photos with great-grandmother and her long-awaited meeting her great-granddaughters (they are 3 and 1), some with grandma and her granddaughters, and then all four of Janine‘s children. Photographing families can be a challenge, photographing kids is a different kind of challenge, but Janine told me that her oldest daughter would be a whole new character in front of the camera. I believe what she told me when I will arrived at their home for the session was: “We’ll take whatever we can get with her“! And let me tell you she was quite the dime-piece! I don’t think I will ever pass up the opportunity to take her picture!
The session was truly special in every way and I feel so honored that I was asked to document a special time for this family. I’m so excited to share this post with you all and hope you enjoy these memories!
