Nostalgia - A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

That place and time for me is the Trinidad of my childhood. My home that no longer feels quite like home because i’m now approaching 12 years of living abroad. Holy HELL! How did that happen so fast?

Nothing makes me miss home more than the Christmas season. Although New York is a buzzing hive of seasonal activities and distractions, It never leaves me feeling fulfilled on Christmas Day. That’s because Christmas is for Family. For laughter and arguments. Hugs that last a little bit too long and temperatures in the high 80’s. See! I’ve been living here too long, I’m using Fahrenheit.

Every session that I shot this season, was filled with love and family bonds that made me want to capture every fleeting second for you to cherish and then run or FLY home to my own! This shoot in particular made me miss my mom.
