For a professional photographer, having a granddaughter is like a chef discovering an all-new ingredient.

My baby daughter delivered a baby daughter, who immediately became my favorite person to read to, photograph and love. I’ve been updating this page every week or two, whenever a new, fun, cute, cool photo or video pops onto my pixels.

There’s nothing better than playing in the living room.

Avery LOVES making us laugh wherever she is.

Trying on kilts for my daughter’s Scottish wedding.

I loved how dark & moody, yet somehow sweet & calm this snapshot of my son-in-law and granddaughter out trick-or-treating felt.

Because I saw a pretty door and roses, Marci and Avery posed with ‘em. That’s what happens when you’re on vacation with photographers! And then Avery flies over the North Sea with the help of her mommy.

My son-in-law lifts my granddaughter up to spy on us in Leith (Edinburgh) pub.

EASTER BUMPA: Avery with her great grandfather, “Bumpa.”

Here’s one and a half minutes of delightful silliness.

Lathered up in triple-protection sunscreen, Avery crawls along the water’s edge.

Who wore it better?
(Don’t answer; we know who!)

Whenever Marci or Avery were missing from our cottage rental, we’d always find one strapped to the other out in Lake Michigan.

Captain Yau came home from work and left his uniform on for a few portraits before changing.

Sometimes you’re just lying on the floor with your iPhone trying to make your grandbaby laugh.

Taylor feeds Avery in her old bedroom.

A great baby and a great grandma

Three generations of fun, fantastic females

WoW MoM left her Mother’s Day card on the dashboard as we visited Avery and Taylor on their first Mom’s day.

My baby kisses her new baby.

Say hello to my little friend!

Just days before she gives birth, our daughter poses with her belly in our home studio.

My daughter’s belly grows bigger and bigger every several weeks until . . .

All this posing can sure wear a little girl out!
