Less than 24 hours later I met this wonderful family again, and had the pleasure of capturing their bonding with their new son. Yesterday’s session was my first foray into adoption photography, but today I felt comfortable with this family and we got started straight away with capturing this special day.
If yesterday we had any number of emotions in the room, this day we saw only smiles, and the strength of these two parents left a lasting impression on me again. It is difficult to imagine the multitude of emotions that must have been flowing through them that day, but their desire to make this boy feel at home was ever-present and stronger than any other. Kala and Gary were intune with everything Jae needed or wanted from the moment they met, and displayed great compassion and understanding of their new son’s situation.
On a side note, Jae loves to play with buttons, and he is quite the photographer! The last image is one he took of his new mother! We couldn’t keep him away from the D800! Expensive toys for this boy!
To see what happened yesterday, take a look at the previous post.

And the little photographer himself.
