Fourth Time’s a Charm | A Maryland Adoption Session

“Whirlwind” doesn’t even begin to describe 2014 for the T family. After three (yes, you read that right…three) failed adoption attempts, Baby L was a long-awaited answer to prayer.


It was a joy to capture some sweet moments in a quintessential Baltimore setting as the T family prepares to move closer to family.



While we didn’t catch Baby L in the best mood, he did give me a couple smiles.20150329_Tfamily_14

Congratulations and Best Wishes, T Family! It was a pleasure meeting you and getting to know you.

Nathan: Greenville SC Baby Adoption Photography

Natosha had experienced a couple of heartbreaks in their quest to complete their family. Already the proud mama of four children, there was still a longing for a fifth.  They waited patiently for God to fill this longing by the joyous chaos of another child.

Meet Nathan.  This sweet boy is surrounded by so much love.

I can’t describe to you the way his older siblings had welcomed Nathan and doted on him.  But I can show you their love in just a couple detail images that broke my heart wide open.

Chosen | Baltimore Adoption Photographer

It is always a true honor to celebrate another family built through the miracle of adoption.  But when that family is one of your dearest, dearest friends, the celebration is even sweeter.  I have been so privileged to be a small part of precious N’s journey to his forever family, all the way from China.  Participating in the preparation, the waiting, the prayer, more waiting, the send off, and the reunion at home with family and friends was such a blessing to me.  And seeing all of the pictures of their time in China made me jump for joy and praise God (ok and it made me a teeny bit jealous too).  E. Family, I am so happy for you.  God clearly knew what He was doing when He put the five of you together.
