"Carinho"; Portuguese word for "affection". A word that perfectly describes this sweet family I photographed in the Six Senses Douro Valley Hotel (aka a little paradise on the banks of the Douro river, right where the delicate Portuguese wine´s first material grows). A birthday mom, a gorgeous daughter, a loving husband and an extremely independent dog strolling around under the spring sun, and me, following them around trying to capture the strongest bond of all; Family. Just the stuff that I like!
