Though our love ones are far away, our kababayans, they do not forget. Actually, they try to come home with every possible excuse: Christmas, reunions, milestone birthdays, weddings, etcetera. And if they are not physically able, we have these lovely boxes instead! Oh, who doesn't love the sight and smell of a balikbayan box?
I got the pleasure to photograph the Nietos. One of the sisters, Cel, brought her husband and two kids here from San Francisco. They decided to have their portraits taken to remember their reunion.
