The Whites: Mima and Pipa Visit Japan


The Whites had some special visitors this fall. Brian's parents visited for a few weeks!

We visited a neighborhood shrine, very close to their home, to take some pictures and have some beautiful moments from their visit to look back on.

Living so far away from family can be really tough, so it's always extra special when grandparents come to visit their expat families in Japan.

I love how involved and playful the Whites are with their grandkids. You could tell they were trying to make the most of their time with their only grandchildren.

This is one of the ways that sweet little Braxton shows his love--by squeezing your face!

This shrine was a nice spot for the kids to play and for me to grab some shots of them playing around and exploring the grounds. It's really fun to have little gems like this place in your neighborhood.

Baby kisses are the sweetest, aren't they??

What did I tell ya? Face squeezing. It means I love you.

Sometimes Mom gives a little too much attention to Little Sister for Big Brother's liking. It's tough being the oldest.

Everyone gets a little love from Braxton!

At Giuliana's age, sometimes bonding with faraway grandparents can be tough, and it takes time to warm up to them when they visit. But this little one really seemed to adore her Mima and Pipa, despite her age.

I'm glad that Gaby and Brian got a good few weeks with his parents and that they asked me to document some of their time together. Family is what it's all about!
