[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my wife Heidi and our Grandson Henry. The joy of being a grandparent is easily seen in Heidi's loving expression. At 18 months Henry already is aware of his "Mormor" and hands the phone to his mother every day to speak to her...

Hello Roger,

this is more then just a photo. You can see this is not just a pose, it's simply love. For me it is a bitter memory, seeing this. I lost my father about a year ago and I have seen pictures of him with his grand-children with the same look in his eyes.
I hope your grand-children may know their grand-parents for many years.

best regards.

Hello Roger!
Amazing woman, wonderful boy. Nice scene. Very fine cut.
Perfect background. Marvelous lightness and brightness. Superb colours.
Perfect exposure. Good contrast and sharpness.
Sophisticated effect. Well done!

what a warm image my friend! lovely expressions! I like the mood too!

Henry is that sweet little boy captured through the dog trap door , he he, oh and i hadn't had the chance to see your wife in your photos yet , so nice to meet her with her grandson in an embrace ,lovely moment , hummmm judging by her glance i get a true sentiment of grandmother( having been) subjugated by her grandson , i bet he has had that same success with grandfather too , ha ha . Our granddaughter has th same effect on us , i know what it is when i see a scene like this ! LOL!
Thanks for sharing Roger .
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones ,

Hi Roger!
Lovely photo.
I like your Portrait shots.


Re bonsoir
A long time I want to tell you that your young wife have here a so nice smile, full of a tenderness which can be seen also in her eyes.This moment was perfectly taken, and the bg ideally blurred.Your grandson seems to know yet what he wants...

Hi Roger, This is a portrait of love from a grandma to a grandson. The facial expression of your wife's tells it all. The moment of shyness of your grandson Henry is naturally captured by you. What a nice moment you share with us. Thank very much
