So not only did I get to spend part of New Year’s Eve with this newly-minted family of three … I got to document them going home together for the first time. Ever. That just blows my mind - their trust in my work, and their openness and generousity, to grant me such intimacy and then to allow me to share a sliver of it publicly.

Everyone who knows them personally already knows how much this little fellow is loved. If these images seem full of peace, contentment and tranquility, it is entirely because of them. To the Dzakpasus - much love to all of you and all the best on this new adventure!
