Today my son and I together with my mom went and visited my grandma in her nursing home. My grandma unfortunately suffers from Alzheimer's and is a shadow of her former self. The only good that comes of this is that she gets to meet Marcus (my son) for the very first time, every time.

Marcus who is now 22 months old knows very well who she is and goes with my mom weekly to visit her, she's known to him as gramma-gramma. He absolutely adores my grandma and is always asking to visit. They have such a very special relationship.

2 photo's from today's visit, D300 and a rented 85 1.4.

A kiss for gramma-gramma

I am definitely not a photography expert by any means but I think these pictures are just great! What a sweet little boy you have!

Touching. Your son probably won't remember these visits when he's older, so it's great that you have these pictures to share this story with him.

wow
how much power photography has, when it is attached to a story
how wonderful that you shared these with us

and..... somewhere deep inside, Gramma-gramma knows how much she has a special relationship with Marcus, as well

Greg, we'd like to think that too.

No matter what though, my mom and I will always remember that they had this special relationship. :Love:
