The extended goodbye

Family photojournalist

I love these moments and memories – the extended goodbye that doesn’t end until the car is out of sight. The wave that doesn’t stop until there’s no one left to see it.

For those lucky enough to have close family in the same city, this universal sign of love and care is so sweet. Thank you, Purva, for having me spend time with your family and for bringing your parents into the day as well. I love when grandparents can join!
