Ali and Rachel wanted to have family portraits taken to celebrate the adoption of their daughter, Violet. To say that Violet loved the camera would be a serious understatement. She hammed it up, smiled, goofed, and played, and was an incredible joy to photograph. This was such a fun family session, and to be honest, I felt rather honored to be asked to take their portraits. Adoption can be such a harrowing process, and something like a simple family session seems like a wonderful way to document it’s success and to honor what it means to be a family.
