It was a sincere joy for me to photograph this beautiful family. Nathan and Richelle adopted their daughter in the last year from an orphanage in Ethiopia. Both of them had spent time in Ethiopia over the last several years, and knew they had a passion to adopt. Although they are overjoyed to have her home now, it was both a long and tough process to finally bring her to the states and officially make her a part of their family. (You can read more about their journey on Richelle’s blog here.) The session was such a beautiful time to see how they’ve grown as a family over the last year, and I could not be more happy for them. Enjoy the love—it is beaming from every image!
