Natalia told me, "Everyone thinks they have to wait for a time when they'll be ready to be a parent. But the truth is, there is no time you'll be ready. The first few months are a little hard, but after that, it's not so hard. It gets natural."
Natalia works full time as a graphic designer, and she feels lucky that her life hasn't changed too much after Daniel was born. Thanks to public daycare, which Daniel also likes, she can continue a regular working schedule.
Daniel speaks a language of his own, which is made up of three languages: Japanese, Russian, and English. He picks up Japanese at daycare, learns Russian at home, and hears English from books and songs.
It was a joy to take some photographs for the two of them. Natalia and Daniel, thank you so much! :)
