This is one of the reasons I can barely stand the thought of leaving this city in a few months. David and Mimi and their three delightful, spirited, thoughtful children are some of our closest friends here. We came across the oceans with them four years ago, first meeting each other in the hot and tearful days of Pre-Field Orientation in Houghton, New York. Who knew that four years later they would be so dear to my (and my whole family's) heart?
So even though I have NO DESIRE to go into family protraiture as a business, I more than willingly went out with them for an afternoon to try and get some family photos. If for no other reason than I love to hang with them. And I do enjoy taking pictures. We did laugh at the irony of the very foreign looking westerner following around this Asian-looking family and snapping away at them. Usually it would be the other way around.
