I am not going to apologize for the large amount of pictures on this post, because this family is one of the most loving, most funny, most genuine that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. I had such a good, good time with the Clarks a few months ago, and have been looking forward to sharing their session!
Kristin contacted me when I offered a special deal for adoptive families earlier this year. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of adoption, and I wanted to bless those who had gone through the process. Her emails were full of exclamation points (a girl after my own heart), and I knew she was as excited about the session as I was! My time with them was so special to me – it’s really beautiful to see a family be themselves, be open, be silly. (Hence the many photos below!)
I asked Kristin to share a little about their experience, and she sent me a blog post she’d recently written. You can read it in full here, but this part stuck out to me:
“We experienced years of infertility, and chose adoption after not being able to have biological children. Some would say it was our second choice, and it was. However our first choice was wrong. The plan for our family was to parent the children intended for us- and those children were never going to happen regardless of the surgeries, tens of thousands of dollars, or waiting. Our family is built by adoption- it was and will be the first choice for us.” So beautifully said.
Enjoy a day with the Clarks below!
