Little Piglet meets her UK cousin for the first time

Living so far from my family I really treasure the time we are together. Last month it was our granddaughter’s (Little Piglet) first Birthday, and all the Piglet clan gathered in France to celebrate the occasion. Not only were our children altogether, but it was the first time our grandson, who is seven months and lives in the UK, met his French cousin “Little Piglet”, plus his aunty and uncle PIF.

As you can imagine my camera was in constant use as I tried to capture the special moments and preserve the wonderful memories. But can we really capture the emotions we feel and preserve them with the click of a button?

Catching the gandchildrens attention is not easy

Oh, and I do take my hat off to professional photographers who specialise in family snaps. My goodness, it’s a real art trying to persuade two babies, to look at you (camera) at the same time, especially when one is intent on crawling off!
