“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Jamie, Pete and Angus: Over the moon to see Nan arrive…

Every week, Nan comes over for a whole day to spend time with the boys. Singlehandedly, she plays with the boys, feeds the boys, puts them down for their naps, then plays with them again when they wake up – all the while wearing a big smile and displaying constant patience as only a grandmother can. She is one remarkable woman. The boys absolutely adore her (just as they adore their Grandpa) and always anticipate her arrival with great excitement. This is hands down one of my favourite captures this year.

what a lovely shot and how fortunate to have a grandmother near by who can come by and visit once a week.

Nan seems like a very special lady! So sweet of her to come by once a week to spend time with her little guys… while also giving Mommy a break!

I love this photo, Ronnie. Words aren’t even needed! It captures it all.

YES! Absolutely stunning! Wonderful light + shadow play and great framing. Oh and the anticipation evoked…lovely.
Grandparents are the greatest. Really. My dad is arriving here in Indonesia in a few hours and my girl is super excited. All week we’ve been pretending “you be papa, and I be Stella.” It’s the sweetest.
