5 Occasions for Photos of Grandparents

Grandparents hold such a special place in our hearts and there are so many aspects of your grandparents lives worth learning about and celebrating. No matter what their story may be—whether it’s surviving a war, immigrating, or raising your amazing family—it’s a story worth telling. And the perfect way to capture their story, legacy, and longevity is with photography. So to help you get inspired as to why a photoshoot with your grandparents is so special, today I’m sharing 5 occasions that call for photos. Take a look at the list below.


Whether it’s a “big” or “small” anniversary, celebrating years of marriage with photos is a must in my eyes. Encourage your grandparents to head to their favorite place, use their wedding photo as a prop, or any other special touch you can think of. They’ll love showing off their favorite places or things, and will have so much fun together with their session.

There are plenty of ways to honor your grandparents through photography at your wedding. Examples include displaying their wedding photo on one of the tables, tying their photo to your bouquet to honor their memory, or using their photos in the slideshow. No matter what route you take, you’ll love including them in your wedding in an extra special way.

Welcoming a New Grandchild

Meeting a grandchild for the first time is like nothing else. Cue lots of kisses, warm snuggles, and plenty of happy tears. This is a moment that they (and you) will never want to forget, so capturing the moment with a photo is a must. Not only will this photo mean so much to your grandparents, but to you and the grandchild too.

Playing With the Grandkids

The bond between grandparents and their grandchildren is extremely special and a bond you’ll most definitely want captured through photography. Whether you’d like to gift a photoshoot to capture these moments, or are looking to get some candid photos of the gang at an upcoming family event, you’ll love having pictures of the grandparents and their favorite little ones.

Celebrating Generations

Photos of generations together are priceless. And if you’re lucky enough to have your grandparents or even your great-grandparents in your life, I can’t stress enough how special it will be to have photographs taken with them. So grab as many generations as you can, and get ready for the most memorable of photoshoots.

Whether there’s a special occasion coming up, or you’d love to have photos of, or with your grandparents “just because”, I hope I’ve given inspiration as to why these moments are worth capturing.
