She has alzeihmers and I have written a blog post about it here.

I decided to do a series of portraits of her while she could still enjoy it. Here are a few from that series.

Has she seen them yet? Interested in what she had to say.

Personally, I adore them. Make the most of your Mum, one day she won't be there anymore.

DANJAMA: She has seen them. I was actually very concerned about showing them to her as her short term memory is around 2 - 15 minutes depending on her health. She walked back in to the room 5 minutes after we'd finished taking the pics as I was putting her hats away and she asked me why all her hats were out....so I didn't want to upset her by showing her the pics when she would not be able to remember it having taken place...and often that upsets her. However my wife persuaded me to show her and we did on Tuesday. She liked to smiling ones but wasn't happy with the non smiling ones or the positioning of her hats in a couple I haven't put up. She liked the fact she'd had her hats out though, even though she had absolutely no recollection of having her photo taken.

i sold my 5d and lenses and flash stuff 6 months ago. I only use my iphone these days and occasionally a film camera. These were done on my iphone4S
WOW!!! It looks like a very capable camera:smashin:

It's not just the camera though, it's what you do with it. Read Gordon's blog if you haven't already done so, it's inspiring how much can be done with an iPhone camera. The 4S camera is great, but it's how you use it and the editing that can be done within the phone in PP that really pushes it to create such fantastic images :smashin:

Gordon these are great and she looks like a loverly person,you dont need me to tell you to cherish her in what time you have left,I lost my Mum back in April, 8 weeks after she was told she had cancer,2 days after her 75th birthday.

I wish I had some recent photos of her,but she was to ill to pose for any shots on the numerous times I went back to the UK during her illness.

God I miss her
