For those of you that do not know, late last year I became involved with an amazing ministry here in Tulsa, Crisis Pregnancy Outreach, to provide my services free of charge to newborns placed for adoption. What a blessing this organization is! I photographed my 3rd adoption blessing on Tuesday and it was so very special. I was greeted at the elevator by Bella’s adoptive mother and birth mother. How incredible it was to witness the bond between these two extraordinary women. They both sat quietly behind me as I posed sweet Bella, marveling at the sight of their daughter. As the session was coming to an end I asked if they would be up for some photos with Bella and they both happily agreed. I started with Bella’s adoptive mother and Bella alone and then moved Bella in the arms of her birth mother. I then asked Lacey to come in and wrap her arms around them and it was the most beautiful thing to be a part of.
I then posted that image to Facebook and I am completely blown away by the response. My heart is so full reading all of the comments. I can tell that this image has affected so many people in a positive way and that is what photography is all about and I’m so blessed to be able to capture these moments for my clients.
Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to stop by and comment, I know it means so much to so many.
