Beautiful Adoption Story
Denver Birth Photographer
One year ago today I documented one of the most special birth stories of my career. This sweet family welcomed their second son through adoption. At the time I was living in Bossier City, LA and they were traveling from California to come meet their newest addition the day he was born. We chatted a few times about their journey leading up to this day, and knowing their background and how they got here made the adoption even more special. One Sunday morning we got word that the birth mom was having the baby and we should head to the hospital. I met them at the hospital and we walked in together. There was so much excitement as we headed in. They could hardly contain themselves and wanted to scream for joy. Once we made our way to the nurses station we had word that the baby was born and they would soon meet their son. Unfortunately “paperwork” delayed their meeting. Several hours later I was able to capture the moment they met Isaiah for the first time. He was so adorable wrapped up in his little blanket. The relief that you could visually see when they picked him up and held him was so amazing to watch. They fell into each others arms adoring their new baby boy. Big Brother was waiting in the waiting room with his grandma and couldn’t wait to run down the hall and meet his baby brother. Memories like this captured goes to show that you can become parents in so many different ways, and no matter how you welcome your children, the moment is beautiful and worth documenting. I am so thankful this sweet family found me online and planned to have me there as they hugged and kissed their baby boy for the very first time.
