Family time

This mom playing with her kids during the celebration of the Chhath festival, an hindu traditional rite in Kathmandu, Nepal. I had the lucky to follow this festival from sunset to sunrise and watch all the different families praying and enjoy the moment together. This particular moment really caught my attention, spreading love together with ancient tradition and beliefs.
