Not sure if you know, that I have been living in the US for almost 10 years now; and away from my home, Panama, for 13 years now. To this day, I still feel homesick; and when I do, I find comfort in either calling my loved ones (my parents, brothers, aunts, cousins, etc); and/or cooking Panamanian food. With this said, I know what it feels like to live far away from the home where you grew up. And I know what it feels like to build a home of your own, in a new place.
When the beautiful mom in these pictures contacted me, and told me she was in Almaden Valley, where she grew up, for a visit with her daughter and husband to her parents’ ; and really wanted pictures at their home; I immediately understood the nostalgia, and why she wanted them there. She lives out the country, and she was here for a short visit; so I am glad we made it work.
The moment I walked into her parents home, I realized how unique their place was. It had the most beautiful back garden, with gorgeous succulents, and even a full grown orange tree. It also had access to beautiful grass field. But beyond that, I saw the loved her parents had for their granddaughter, daughter and son-in-law. And I was on a mission capture the most amazing memories for them.
See some of my favorites from their session, from my heart to yours…
