November is National Adoption Month so it only seemed fitting that this family would grace the blog this month. I have been fortunate enough to have multiple people in my life who are adopted so I know just how amazing it can be. Over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of watching one of my best friends grow her family through fostering and adopting and it has been so incredible. (Keep your eyes open their family will be next). It has opened my eyes to this entire community of amazing people who are fostering kids in need and building families through adoption. It is seriously the most heart warming thing to witness. After hearing all the stories I just knew I needed to capture some of these families! While in NC I had the pleasure of capturing this family as well as others that are fostering and adopting as well as teenager that is up for adoption, seriously so humbling.
So let me introduce you to the Williams family. I had the pleasure of meeting them on a recent trip to North Carolina. Say hello to beautiful scenery! Jetton Park in Cornelius was so gorgeous first thing in the morning. It over looks Lake Norman for a stunning view. I knew I would instantly connect with this family when they showed up with Starbucks in hand which made for the perfect candid moments.
So here is what makes this family extra special. This family was built through adoption! This couple opened their home to not one, not two but three beautiful children who were oh so sweet and after years of fostering a handful of kids they have finally built their forever family. And these are their first officially photos as a family together 🙂
