My grandmother

As a general rule I don’t post too many personal things on my business blog – I keep a separate blog for my personal projects/photography.  However, these photos mean a great deal to me.  My grandmother is 94 years old; she survived World War II, Stalin’s repressions, a decade of life near the Arctic circle, and immigration to the United States.  She is one of the most important people in my life.  Unfortunately, because my grandmother lives in Norfolk, VA, I can only visit her 3-4 times a year.  Every time I visit, when I say goodbye, it always feels like I’m saying goodbye for the last time.  Every time I visit, we have the same argument about photography – she hates being photographed and I try to document every memory.  These photographs are from my most recent visit – May 9, 2015 (which is coincidentally the day when World War II ended). Hopefully I’ll have many more moments with my grandma.
