Red Thread Sessions | Adoptive Family Photography

I am so excited to now be a part of Red Thread Sessions, an organization that celebrates adoption through photography. Red Thread Sessions is a group of photographers all over the United States who donate a family portrait session to adoptive families.

I have had a heart for adoption for a long time. The first time adoption (or orphans, or anything of that concept), really came into my frame of reference was when I was 16. I was on a mission trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina where we traveled for almost two weeks to different orphanages to do reconciliation camps with the kids there. It was the first time that my little high school self considered that there were actually orphaned children. Since then, I have felt a tug on my heart to adopt and to support orphans and adoption efforts worldwide- and I am so thankful my husband feels the same. We are not starting our family yet, but when we do, we pray that we will become adoptive parents.

I wanted to be involved with Red Thread Sessions because it is one small way I can use my photography to help promote and celebrate adoption. Offering a family session, at no cost to the family, is a gift I’d love to be able to give every newly adoptive family in my area. My hope is that it will raise awareness of adoption, both domestic and international. That these sessions will offer adoptive families a reminder of where they were on the adoption journey, soon after their child became a part of their family. And that I can capture one part of their very precious, emotional, and exciting story. As a part of the Red Thread Sessions group, families can now find me (along with other wonderful photographers) through their website. If you, or anyone you know, has adopted a child or children, it would be an honor to help tell your story through photography. You can find out more about Red Thread Sessions by clicking any of the links from this post, but if your adoption has been completed in the last three months, you qualify for a Red Thread Session- and I’d love to meet you.

    Tara! WOW!!! I almost cried when I read this for so many reasons, thank you for reminding me of those precious children that touched our lives and how I yearn to return to them (hopefully one day with an adopted baby to bring home!) You continue to amaze me by the loving things that you do. This is truly amazing and you are the perfect person for the job!ReplyCancel
