Yes! Grandma's purse always has goodies in it! But I think the composition could be stronger. Feels accidental and I think this is a good idea that could have been much more emotive. Tighter crop comes to mind, perhaps if the kid was looking at the purse instead of (seemingly past) grandma might make it stronger.

Skin's a little oversoftened on everyone. Makes them look plastic almost. Try taking some of the softness off and I think it would be a great shot. Nice colors and tones.. good DOF.. Good sharpness.

Grandma's purse is always a good thing to be around when you want some money. I like the facial expression on the little boy's face. He's a cutie.
