They are officially forever a family!! It was an honor to capture sweet moments of mother and daughter. Their beautiful adoption story began January 2022 and we finally got a chance to get together to capture some special moments before the year ended! They were presented with the gift of a photo session with me on their adoption day (which is the best gift ever~I do offer gift certificates btw), but they decided to work out the new family dynamics first before we got together.
We decided to shoot at The Dunlawton SugarMill Gardens on the morning of New Year’s Eve. It was an overcast, cool to mild day. Perfect for a photo session!
They showed me their favorite places they visit around the garden so I made sure to get images where they were familiar with most. On the last bridge we spotted a lotus flower alone near a rock in the water and it reminded them of a special story. It was truly an honor and inspiration to experience this photo session with them.
