Back in May, I was contacted to do an adoption session via a family from Red Thread Sessions.
Guys, I LOVE this organization. If you don’t know about them, here’s a blurb from their website:
“Red Thread Sessions was started in 2011 by two custom photographers in Texas and Maryland, both whom added to their families through adoption. Feeling the need in their communities to celebrate the beauty of adoption through photography, Red Thread Sessions was born. Soon after, many other photographers throughout the U.S. felt moved to donate their time as well. Red Thread sessions not only captures family portraits of new families, it also capture the precious, happy, confusing, exciting, exhausting, traumatic, life-changing time that is so often brief and fleeting in the life of an adoptive family.”
Photographers from all over the country are invited to apply to be a part of this wonderful organization (thankfully I was accepted!!!) and donate their time and services. These are my most meaningful sessions <3
Jess and her family are amazing. Their story is incredible. They are so strong, full of love, and inspiring.
After her husband was diagnosed with cancer, they started to explore their options to have a family. They got pregnant with Will on their first IVF try!!! Amazing. When they were ready for their family to expand, they looked into adoption. Little Nora Grace’s birth mother picked the Sagers to be her forever family, and they got to go witness her at only a few hours old, spend time in the hospital with her, and take her home. She’s an itty bitty thing, and so so loved. Will is the perfect big brother, so full of energy and love <3
Here are a few images from their session!
Eventually little Nora was over me and my camera all in her face. So we caught fireflies while Daddy calmed her down 🙂
