I started off as a family and child photographer five years ago, but what I noticed was that people only came to get photographs taken with their children and spouses. I never had a client asking me to take photographs of their parents or grandparents or even photos of their children and parents.

So I decided to divide my work time into two parts. I spent one half of my month photographing my clients the way they wanted me to and the other half was dedicated to requesting grandparents and great-grandparents (who I would invite via model calls or would randomly approach in public places) to come and be photographed by me with their grandkids.

On one such shoot in Houston, Texas, this year, I noticed that while I was photographing one grandparent with their grandchild, the other grandparent was just standing silently in a corner. So, for the sake of their memories together, I asked both grandparents if I could photograph them together... and I haven't stopped doing that now.

Whichever country I visit, I make sure I photograph elderly couples there together and I cannot express how fulfilling this has been for me. The stories I hear of their lives together... and the pure and honest love that I witness in the course of these shoots is just beyond amazing.

One of the elderlies said to me, "When we were young, we had so much around us to distract us. Our love always seemed to be so rushed... so incomplete. But now that we have only each other, this love, this companionship is all that matters."

This image is the way I like to imagine my grandparents. They were all gone by the time I was born.

She looks like she is thinking, "this is my rock" and holding on so tight. I love this. They are all so inspiring. I only hope that in the future I experience this type of love and respect for the one I have chosen to grow old with.
