Ghanaian and Nigerian Family Photo Shoot_Kente_1 
Uzoma Okwumo sent this amazing photo shoot to Bellanaija to honour her only living grandparent, half-Nigerian (Igbo) and Ghanaian Helen Ama Tarigbo.
Read her story and view the album below:


My grandmother is turning 78 years old next month. Earlier this year, she fell really sick, and once she recovered, it made us realize that as many memories as we had with her, we haven’t done anything recently to honor her nor did we have a nice picture to remember her by. She is after all the only living grandparent that we have left on this earth. One night as I was sleeping, I woke up with this vivid vision of a way to honor her. You see, my grandmother is half Ghanaian and half Nigerian.
I figured since she has 4 generations of her extension existing on this earth, why not show her just how blessed she has been and just how much we appreciate her for being the rock of our family. We would dress up in traditional Ghanaian kente clothes and traditional Nigerian (Igbo) fabric akwete and do a photoshoot which will be framed and presented to her on her birthday on November 26th. It was a lot of hard work planning it and finally executing it, but we pulled it off.
Through these pictures, we were able to capture Herself, One of her Daughters, Her Grandkids, and her Great Grandkids. We intentionally did not include the husbands and the dads in the pictures because 1. They’re not too fond of pictures, and 2. We wanted to keep it to my grandmother and her direct extensions. We blessed her with a one of a kind, original photo shoot that hasn’t been done before.
Please help us honor our Grandmother Helen Ama Tarigbo as we pay homage to our Nigerian/Ghanaian roots, and also recognize our photographer.
