spent a lovely afternoon with this beautiful family. their enjoyment of each other was so apparent, and i felt privileged to capture it. even as i was editing the images, i was filled with warm fuzzies, uplifted by how they exemplified love as a family.
as they have recently relocated to Shanghai, mom wanted to be able share a glimpse of their life with family back home, just in time for her grandmother’s 85th birthday. thinking about this, it added another dimension to the meaningfulness of my work. for many expat families here, i know relatives back home miss them tons and always want to see how the kids are growing and changing. i feel privileged once again that i can create these images to share with extended family and friends overseas.
