Red Thread Sessions

We were so blessed to be connected to the non profit organization The Red Thread Sessions- read more here:   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.
"The Ancient Chinese Proverb is a commonly-used saying within the adoption community. It symbolizes the bond that all adoptive children have with their adoptive parents, even before they meet. An invisible “red thread” connects them to the people they are destined to meet. Although this Proverb truly relates to all people, it has a particularly strong connection to adoptive families and seemed like the perfect name for this organization."
In January we connected with Sarah from Sincerely, Sarah Photography We met in person and spent hours chatting about adoption while sharing stories over coffee.  At the time we were anxiously awaiting Travel Approval so it was nice to relax for a few, while longing for my sweet baby.  Fast forward four months later here we are!  Due our crazy illnesses we rescheduled our Red Thread session a few times!  Thankfully Sarah was so understanding!  We finally captured our family of three this May.  The photos are truly beautiful and we will cherish them always!
Thanks to Sarah & the Red Thread Session!
