I had the honor of photographing and being a part of an adoption ceremony. Alex and James hired me a few years back for their engagement and wedding . It’s always such a great feeling photographing other events in my couples’ lives after the wedding.⠀⠀⠀
Being that I’m a stepdad, I knew the feelings that they were/are feeling. I teared up in the courtroom. When I first started dating my wife 7 years ago, Ethan was only a 1 year old. I had no parenting experience whatsoever. In the beginning, I felt people didn’t believe that I could love a child that wasn’t my own. But I love him more than anything I could ever imagine. Now, I’m one hell of a stepdad.
Seeing and being a part of an adoption ceremony filled me with love. It warmed my heart seeing other people loving a child like their own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This has been a long time in the making so I’m glad to have been a part of this.
