I can't even begin to describe how amazingly excited I am that today is here! Tiffany and Jen are two of the truly nicest, most kind-hearted, generous, smart, hilarious, genuine people I know and they have come to the end of a long road and... today they officially adopted two wonderful boys. They are officially a family! So yes, a new journey is just beginning, but now they will take it officially as a family unit. Tiffany and Jen are two of my very best friends and I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture the amazing love and evolution of their family over the last two years. I stole the following from Tiffany's facebook page from yesterday, but I don't think she'll mind: "We opened our home to the boys on November 20, 2009 and somewhere within those first few months, we opened our hearts...and tomorrow a judge will declare that all of this has been worth it, that all of the waiting and struggles and anxiety have been worth it." While it is impossible to truly explain the journey their family has taken since 2009, the ups and downs, the late nights and sad times, the good cries and bad, the stress and the joys, they have all led to this wonderful day. I feel so privileged and honored to be their friends and to have borne witness to their journey so far. Jeremiah and Kayden are so blessed to have you both and I know you two feel blessed to have them. That is why this day is so special - so CONGRATULATIONS and love times a trillion to the four of you!!!!!
I know Tiffany and Jen have been waiting a loooong time to share photos of the boys and the photos I took for them are theirs to share now - so I have put together just a few highlights of some of my favorite moments from our two shoots. They can share the rest as proud parents (plus Jeremiah and Kayden are so adorable - you might have a meltdown if I shared too many)!
These were from our first photo shoot together - there will be a second installment this Saturday from our second shoot in order to continue the celebration!
I mean seriously! These are some cute kids and some amazingly sweet and snuggly moments!
Sending you all tons of love and happiness!!!!
