Every Sunday I visit my grandmother’s senior living home and I hold a “craft class”. It’s a lot of fun for me and I think it’s a lot of fun for the ladies (generally) that join in. Being as I am a photographer by profession and only a crafter by hobby, I have long wanted to do some photos of some of the women that I have the pleasure of crafting with each week. My grandmother will be 98 years old this coming April, and since taking a few weeks off of the craft class while my grandmother has been ill and in the hospital, I decided it was about darn time, and we needed to get these done! So, along with a couple helpers, and a wonderful makeup artist (Nicole Lind Beauty) who graciously donated her time to do this with me, we did a little pamper and photo shoot! Here are some of my favorites of these beautiful women!
My grandmother getting her makeup done.
Always the performer! That’s what happens when you were a ballerina on Broadway!
Sisters are so special! :0)
She doesn’t say much, but her winks say it all!
Three generations! I was happy to capture this for them, lucky they were visiting this day!
Finding love in a retirement home, it’s never too late to share your heart!
And then we moved it outside!
Grandma and the two youngest (of 9) great grand kids!
Ended with a nice little chat before dinner!
I had such a great time taking these photographs! I can’t wait to share them with the ladies and Sunrise!
A HUGE thank you to my helpers: Caitlyn (AKA Auntie KK), Tracey, Teagan and Corbyn!
And an extra special thank you to Nicole Lind for coming and making these beautiful women feel special and glamorous!
