Baby T was a dream to photograph. He slept the entire time (apart from a feeding or two) and got super cozy in every pose we did with him. What a cute lil peanut! It has been a joy to get to know Baby T’s mom (owner over at Live to Love Photography) over the last number of months as she has helped me with some newborn session assisting, making sure we keep these babies safe and comfortable during sessions! This time though, we gave her a break, and our good friend Brittney Kreider helped out. It was so fun having us all in the studio together. I absolutely love my job and the fellow photographer friends that it has lead me to and the sweet little babes we get to snuggle with all day long…
The H Family has been through a roller coaster of a ride the last few years as they dreamed of adopting and then had to walk through a very long adoption process…but in the end this story ends happily ever after for this beautiful family. In the words of Moma H: “After waiting almost two long years and having a roller-coaster of near matches, we were overjoyed when we were chosen by our birth mother to adopt our beautiful baby girl through a local agency. We fell in love with our baby girl from the first moment we held her in our arms.”
I had the privilege to do a Red Thread Session when Miss G was only 8 days old and then we recently celebrated her one year birthday and adoption finalization with a follow up session a few months back. What a joy is has been to journey and document with this family through their adoption. Adoption is certainly not for the faint of heart. Patience, endurance, fear, worry and “what ifs” are just a few of the things that adoptive families have to walk through. It can be draining (I can personally relate to this as my hubby and I are in the process of an adoption also!) But, one thing I have LOVED about photographing so many Red Thread Sessions lately is the hope and joy it gives us…the hope to persevere and to press on and the joy to unconditionally love. It gets me super excited to meet our lil babe soon :)
So, meet Miss G…she is beautiful as can be.
I really enjoy photographing engagement sessions for my couples, mostly because they are a great way for me to get a feel for their personalities and hearts prior to the wedding. What fun it is, then, to see their personalities come to life during their big day! Three words that I would use to describe Laura and Bill are sweet natured, genuine and authentic. And these three things certainly came through in their wedding as well. It was a a day filled with joy, sweet intimate moments, happiness and lots of Baltimore Orioles! These two are HUGE fans and they made sure to incorporate some serious Baltimore Birds decor; a perfect compliment to their sweet natured personalities!
