Being a grandparent is a really neat thing. It's great to see the family growing, to have these little kids around calling you grandpa. But one of the real pleasures is seeing your own kids becoming parents. It brings back memories of having little kids of our own. Our kids have become really great parents.

Being a photographer by profession is pretty darn cool. We shoot a lot of products for a living. (I suppose you can tell, because if you are reading this blog, you are in the middle of my website.) So having the pleasure of photographing your own grandkids is really a lot of fun. Here is the latest addition to our, ever expanding family, Ava Kayle Atkinson:

Yeah, she is cute. Like way cute. She looks just like her older sister Ashley.

Yep. Being a grandparent is a good part of life. And just to make sure that no one asks me to shoot pictures of their kids, Shelley shot these. But I photo directed!
