This Mom's Candid Photos Show The Love Kids Have For Their Grandparents

You may remember photographer Ivette Iven's stunning Breastfeeding Goddess series in which she portrays mothers of all shapes and sizes breastfeeding their children. The stunning images were her way of reminding the public that breastfeeding is "a totally normal thing."

Now, in her newest series, titled Generations, Ivens portrays her two young sons with her Lithuanian parents.

The tender pictures of 5-year-old Kevin and 2-year-old Dilan with her parents Romualdas and Jadvyga capture precious moments between generations. Ivens tells The Huffington Post that "the photos aren't staged" each moment is "so pure and candid."

“Children and grandparents don’t try to pose, they don’t care what they are wearing, they don’t try to show off their best features," says Ivens.

Although her sons don't see their grandparents often, the love between generations is obvious in these sweet moments.

Ivens said her favorite photo from the series is the one she took as her children slept in bed with their grandparents. “It was such a sincere and quiet moment. I’m so happy I had my camera with me,” she said.
