I am so thankful to have the opportunity to illustrate families' stories. A huge part of my story was adopting our son, Jude, from Uganda. The process took us 4 years and once we finally made it to him the system was so unstable we weren't sure how long it would be before we returned home. There are no words to explain the emotional stress and amount of joy this experience brings. Coming home to Kentucky after living 8 weeks in Uganda was a great day. It was the day we would introduce our son to his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, for the 1st time! It was the day we would be reunited with our special needs son who we weren't able to take with us and had been away from for 8 weeks! It was the first night our entire family would be together and sleep in our own beds! Thankfully, I have a friend who is also a photographer and was able to capture this special moment for us!
I am so happy to bless other adopting families by capturing this momentous day for their family! If you are finally coming home and will be returning to Lexington, KY or Louisville, KY airports, please contact me. I completely gift airport sessions by giving families a slideshow and digital files. For families who have recently adopted, I am also happy to gift them the cost of a family session fee. I would be honored to be the first to illustrate your first family session together. (Offer does not include prints, products or digital files).
