There’s no mistaking the ᴇʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴ in this grandmother’s expression as she holds her new grandchild. Photographer Kasie Tanner said:” She was so genuinely happy and ᴇxᴄɪᴛᴇᴅ! She was making faces and jumping up and down, all the while ᴄʀʏɪɴɢ her eyes out. She was the cutest!”

The father, a marine, was stationed overseas during the ʙɪʀᴛʜ of his son. In his stead, his grandparents were there to welcome his newborn—and their great-grandson—into this world. “Absolutely nothing could wipe the smiles from their faces,” photographer Casey Hendrickson said. “It was truly the sweetest thing to watch them welcome this new boy into their lives.”

Timing is everything. “There’ve been a handful of times that I’ve had to stop shooting because the ᴛᴇᴀʀs ᴡᴏᴜʟᴅɴ’ᴛ sᴛᴏᴘ ᴄᴏᴍɪɴɢ. This was one of those times,” photographer Neely Ker-Fox said. “I always tell my clients, baby’s come when the good Lᴏʀᴅ says it’s time, even if that time is decided for you. Had Grace been born three days later on her originally scheduled ᴄ-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ date, this moment would not have happened. Her namesake just so happened to have an appointment in the same hospital and was able to come meet her newest great-grandbaby.”

This grandmother got to meet her new grandson when he was just five hours old. “Grandma went over for a peek and couldn’t contain her ᴇxᴄɪᴛᴇᴍᴇɴᴛ,” photographer Nikki Tumanguil said. “Sᴏᴍᴇ ᴛᴇᴀʀs ꜰʟᴏᴡᴇᴅ, and she gave her son-in-law a huge hug and thanked both her daughter and son-in-law for making her a grandmother. She gingerly accepted her grandson from Mom and more happy tears flowed, with smiles all around. Grandma only gave baby up when he was hungry again.”

This newborn had a big welcome party waiting, including a very special guest. “There were so many people in the room. The entire family piled in after mama gave ʙɪʀᴛʜ and I looked over through the spaces between people to see great-papa ‘being taught’ how to hold his first grandbaby,” photographer Kasie Tanner said. “Everybody settled down in the room and ᴄʀɪᴇᴅ with him. Me too! So sweet!”
