Many people pray for the opportunity to live long enough to see their great grandchildren. It is a privilege, and a blessing to see 4 generations of your family alive at the same time; only few people get to experience this. Below are photos of some women who have.
"When 4 GENERATIONS Meet Last week I took it upon myself to visit my wife’s grandmother in a village in Edo State. It has been over 10 years since I saw her and I had a feeling she might not be around for as long as we think. At 92, you could literally say she’s seen her share of what life has to offer especially when she has witnessed 4 generations of life. It was a 25-hours roundtrip roadtrip that was worth every minute of it. I wanted to document the lineage of the one I considered to have been priviledged to call wife for over 10 years. I would eventually take the following conceptual picture of my grandma-inlaw, my mother-inlaw, my wife, and my daughter. I wanted to document the family in a way that was different from the family portraits I had taken in the past. Looking at the picture, I eventually got more insights to life than I had envisaged. Life is indeed beautiful regardless of the trials one has been through. When I look at the picture I see a woman in her 90s who had experienced 4 miscarriages before giving birth to my mother inlaw. I see a woman in her 60s who has lost her husband and is the definition of a strong and virtuous woman. I see a woman in her 30s whose relationship with me can be likened to the undeserved grace God extended towards the Gentiles: I didn’t deserve her but God favored me. I see a woman in her 3s (if there’s something like that, or what will I call a 3.5 years old girl) whose confidence, beauty and intelligence still manages to amuse me every day. What do you see when you look at this portrait of 4 generations? #familyportraits #photography #generations #elophotos #seunakisanmi #conceptualphotography #africanportraits N.B. I run a photography school @EloPhotos. Academy where we train ordinary people to be extraordinary photographers. A new session begins January 9. Kindly FOLLOW this page to be kept up to date or send me a message ALSO, Please don’t be shy at all when it comes to contacting me to document something similar (or even creatively different) to this for your family. You’ll be glad you did. If you know someone with 5 generations of women (or men), do let me know." – @elophotos.studios
“This is a total package of God's Grace, Mercy and Blessings. 5 Generations of God's Grace🤗 This pic here is a representation of strong women who have gone through life and come out victorious! 🌷 You see my Great grandma over there still works around and washes her clothes. 🌻My Grandma is the one that carries everybodys wahala on her head, after I had my baby she called almost 6 times a day 🤣🤣 🌼You see my momma over there she's a Super human, I remember how broken and depressed she was after we lost my dad, it took Jesus himself to comfort her! She's my greatest critic 😃 you know how twins act, quarrel and reconcile automatically? That's us 😂 🌹To me! All I see is God's love and grace in my life, I am truly blessed and favored. After loosing a Pregancy April last year, I'm here with a cute, chubby, happy, peaceful and Amazing 6 weeks old lil man this April ! Lord I'm Grateful. My Zane is indeed privileged and blessed to have all these women available for him. God keep them all for me. 🌺To my ever supportive hubby! Mr Blackwell, words fail my love! You kept pushing for this pic oooo 😃😃 when I wanted to lose weight and slay 🤣😂🤣😂 I love you till Jesus comes you already know! Lord, I'm forever indebted to you! Thank You!” – @mizdavou

As short as my “labour” was, the excruciating pain made it the longest period ever, and all I could think about was how my mother went in 5 times and my grandma 8 times without epidural. It must have taken them so much strength and courage! All that scolding was sure done in love and with good intentions, even though you called me a cow when I got a rook piercing (I forgive you🙄😂) The love I have for you can’t be expressed! You’re GOLD Mother…For all you do, May your life not be cut short before you eat the fruit of your labour of LOVE I love you Mama… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY 👸 #mothersday#4generations
