"Hey Zalmy, We're here in California for a bit, could you take some photos of our family hanging out with their cousins, aunts and uncles and Grandparents? Nothing really posed, we just want memories of our summers here"
Ummm, yes. Of course.
Sandra is from Huntington Beach, and she knew my family quite well while I was growing up (and we still keep in touch here and there). Years later Estee (my wife) worked for her husband in New York (before we were married). It's a small world (I love that sentence, as if we had another world to compare it to). They really are a special family.
They now live somewhere on the other side of the Country, but they always come for a bit in the summer. Her sister and family do the same. It's always special when they get together here with her parents (it was also his birthday), and they wanted memories of their summers here. Not pretty pictures in a park, rather something that they could look at years later and really remember the wonderful summers.
I dig that. It's what I would want for my family.
