Initially, I wasn’t going to share this picture, then I realized that I just had to. It is a picture of my son gazing upon his newborn daughter just minutes after she was born and three days before Christmas last year. It was one of those moments that will bring the weakest of grandparents to their knees. “Strong, I told myself, be strong.” It wasn’t easy holding back my emotions as I snapped pictures of this perfect moment. In the moments that followed this picture, I began thinking about my son’s love for his child and I was even more grateful to be able to capture this moment for him. Not to mention, I couldn’t wait to hold this precious little bundle of joy. You see, it’s moments such as these, that make taking pictures a pure joy for me. I can often spend hours gazing at old pictures of my own children and events in their lives that shaped them into who they are today. I love to reminisce on their crooked little grins and their accomplishments in pictures. It reminds me that nothing is more precious than the love we have for our children.

  1. I still have a picture of me, dressed in a hospital scrub, holding my son moments after he was born. Love that image but it doesn’t compare to the emotion here. The perfect moment! Congratulations to all of you!
