Being able to photograph for Red Thread Sessions is always such a joy! I love meeting freshly formed families, and the Hutsons were no exception
Auburn, Brett, and their little guy Jude traveled all the way to India a few months ago to bring home adorable twin girls Roxie and Simone. This adorable family met up with me in a Brooklyn park on an unseasonably warm day a few weeks ago to take some much-needed family photos! I loved seeing how Jude was basking in his new big brother role, and how both teeny tiny girls felt so safe and cozy clutching their mom and dad. Auburn was such a natural holding both girls on her hips! Brett works in the airline industry, and it was really awesome to see how all 3 kids would stare up at the sky every time a plane flew overhead and their dad would whisper to them about where the plane was coming from or where it was headed.
I think for this family, the sky’s the limit on what their love can accomplish!

I met this family on a frigid, windy fall day. The cold weather didn’t stop the smiles from their sweet little boy, Micai. His story is incredible and I was honored to capture these pictures for them. His mom tells his story:
“Micai was born in Ethiopia. He was abandoned & found around 4 days old by some trees. He was taken to the hospital to be treated most likely for dehydration but received poor care which resulted in some severe scaring and 1/2 of one of his thumbs being amputated due to infection. He was eventually transferred to an orphanage to be adopted. At the orphanage, he suffered from both pneumonia and the measles. When we received his referral, he was 5 months old & weighed under 9 lbs. He is our miracle & God has sustained him every step. We know that although he was abandoned, he was never alone as The Lord was constantly directing his path to us…his forever family. Micai came home at 11 months. He is now 17 months, weighs 23 lbs., & is working on walking. The Lord continues to use him to teach us so much. He has a brother, Kasen (1) and sister, Kenzi (7) who love him very much! We are so privileged & stand in awe that The Lord chose our family for Micai. May he be a mighty warrior for Jesus!”
