Family is everything.
As a Family Portrait Photographer I am lucky enough to capture the love and joy of many Jacksonville and St Augustine, FL families. Maternity Portraits, sweet Newborn Portraits, and of course Family Portraits. My job is to capture love. And it's amazing.
Making the decision, to open your home. To love, take care of babies and children. To foster. This is a huge decision. A decision purely from the heart.
Two friends of mine a few years ago, made this decision. They loved and cared for many little lives during their time as Foster parents. Their boys treated each little life as a sibling.
But, over a year ago, they took on twins. A baby boy and baby girl. Who were barely thriving. Truthfully, the sweet little Baby J had been marked, failure to thrive. Dave and Liz took them in. Nursed them back to health. To happy, chunky, sweet little babies. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? 100% yes.
As they took care of them, these little babies became family. And when it was possible, after 307 days in their home and their hearts, these baby B and baby J became family. Dave and Liz became parents of 5. Four boys, 1 girl. And I was lucky enough to be there to help capture this special moment. My first time capturing an adoption and their wasn't a dry eye as you could see the joy and love this family had.
So, on this Monday, see their joy. Their love. Their new complete family.
