Baby Justice | Adoption Homecoming

I got the text on a Saturday, “We might be getting a baby this week… could you be there to take pictures?”… Shelly and Jason started the adoption process a little over a year ago and I have followed their journey on their blog. You may remember this awesome couple from their 5 year anniversary shoot in DC last fall. Needless to say, when I got Shelly’s text I was so excited- excited for them to bring home the baby they had been praying for and excited and honored to be a part of it. Things were confirmed on Monday, and Tuesday morning we were all piled in the car heading to meet Shelly and Jason’s daughter for the first time. Amazing. I have a heart for adoption and it is something Ben and I pray for as we hope to adopt children of our own. Being a part of this homecoming was truly a blessing and a day I will not forget. So good, in fact, I felt a few photos were too good not to share.

Shelly and Jason named their daughter Justice, meaning “righteous faith”. Isaiah 26:7 is the verse that goes with her name.Adoption Photography Gotcha Day Adoption Homecoming Maryland Photographer_0218

Shelly and Jason, I really cannot tell you enough what a blessing it was to be a part of this. Thank you for sharing your journey, your faith, and your joy with others. I am so excited for your family!
