This session is very special to me. I am so incredibly happy for this family who finally got to meet their 10 day old baby girl last week! The greatest love is arguably the love you have for your child. But even greater might be the love of adoptive parents. Adoption is a deeply personal subject for me since I was adopted as an infant. My parents always told me that they couldn’t have done any better if they had made me themselves. And even though we were different genetically, we still held many things in common. Throughout my life I even had strangers tell me I looked “just like my mother” or “had my father’s eyes”. I think it’s true in many ways. Love transcends so much. The universe has a funny way of bringing us together with the people we are meant to be with <3 When I got contacted by baby girl’s beautiful mama I was thrilled and honored. We planned a newborn session during their special visit in Charlotte to meet their daughter. What a fun time! They are doing an amazing job as new parents and their little one is as happy as can be (clearly, from her little smile during the shoot ;))! We kept things clean and simple and used lots of natural, neutral tones. They brought one very special item to incorporate – a precious little sweater that baby girl’s late grandmother had started to sew for her. Mama had it finished just in time and I am so glad we got to capture this special gift. I had a hard time choosing only a few photos to share! Too many beautiful images, so here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy!
