An Adoption Story

One of the most rewarding things about my photography business, is helping others, and sometimes this help comes in ways I never imagined.
When I was contacted by a lovely couple to help take images for their birthmother letter I was over-the-moon thrilled to be a part of such an amazing journey.
I know of so many wonderful families that are currently going through the adoption process, and it's definitely not as easy as one might think!
Located in San Jose, they have the cutest dogs that love to go on walks either in their neighborhood or in one of the gorgeous parks that California has to offer.
(The pups love to play and can hardly contain themselves at the thought of a new family member to join in on the fun!)
Some of the best placements are those that are referred through networking.
So this post not only shows some of the images I took during their session,
but it is also a request for you to keep this lovely couple in mind if you come across someone who's pregnant and thinking about adoption. 
 So please share their story with you friends and family, and the next time you're at your doctor share their story with your OB/GYN, or family practitioner, as you never know who they might know, and it could be just the conversation that helps create a family!

If you want to read more about this wonderful couple, or wish to share their story, their "Dear Birthmother" letter can be found below.
Hopefully someday soon I'll be sharing their new baby photos with you!

  1. You have such a wonderful way of capturing moments with such a relaxed, comfortable feel to them. I love the background lighting in the first one. I posted a sunflower i think you'll get a kick out of last Monday. Hope it makes you smile. Have a great weekend. xox
