{ from four to…FIVE! } Dallas / Fort Worth Family Photography | Celebrating Adoption Photographer

Gorgeous,     G O R G E O U S      family !!!

I feel incredibly fortunate when I am contacted by a family to photograph them for an organization called Celebrating Adoption.   Celebrating Adoption sessions are always great fun and more rewarding than I can even explain.   I always get teary when I see the “complete” family  (so, so much love) and I just love hearing the stories of each child and family.

Check            out             this          SIBLING             SQUEEEEEEEEEZE!           Love it!!!

When I heard from the E family mid-July, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph them.   This family had a Celebrating Adoption session for their son, when he arrived home, and now, this session was to celebrate the adoption of their adorable, SWEET, cutie-pie youngest daughter, who came home in January.

We met up on a cooler-than-usual sunny morning and they all popped out of the car with big smiles, ready to have some fun.  We went on a mini nature walk, ran, explored, did a bunch of smiling and laughing, and chatted about lots of kid-related things!

So, here she is, Little A. I loved her sweet demeanor…she was an observer for quite some time, and then slowly but surely, she came out of her shell.  Her more outgoing siblings definitely helped her along…      And oh, did I mention her smile….absolutely stunning!

Her older sister (have you SEEN more beautiful hair?) was so smiley and full of personality — she glowed in that golden sun! I cracked up when we discussed having lollipops at the end of the session — she was SO excited and talked and talked about how much she LOVED candy! ;)

Their athletic older brother was kind-hearted, SO well-mannered, and F U N !


The girlies REALLY look up to him!

Ridiculously      cute.           Incredibly       happy.

Thank you SO very much, E Family, for letting me be a small part in celebrating your adoption of sweet Miss A.  It was such a pleasure to work with you and meet all of your children!

Hope you have one lovely day.  :)
