Red Thread Sessions celebrates adoption with complimentary family photo shoots
There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says, “An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch, or tangle, but will never break.”
Red Thread Sessions was started in 2011 by two custom photographers in Texas and Maryland, both of whom added to their families through adoption. Feeling the need in their communities to celebrate the beauty of adoption through photography, Red Thread Sessions was born. Soon after, many other photographers throughout the U.S. felt moved to donate their time as well.
Although this Chinese proverb truly relates to all people, it has a particularly strong connection to adoptive families and seemed like the perfect name for this organization. The adoption community has embraced the idea of the “red thread” because the saying symbolizes the bond that all adoptive children have with their adoptive parents, even before they meet – connected by an invisible “red thread”.
A Red Thread Session is a complimentary photography session held during homecoming or shortly after a child joins an adoptive family. Participating photographers have agreed to celebrate adoption by completely waiving their session fee from the session at no cost to the adoptive family.
A Red Thread Session not only captures a portrait of new families, it also captures the precious, happy, confusing, exciting, exhausting, traumatic, life-changing time that is so often brief and fleeting in the life of an adoptive family. This is a priceless time – a moment that will never come again and can not be recreated.
Red Thread Sessions wants to raise awareness for the project and invites adoptive families and prospective adoptive families to contact the organization for more details. Red Thread Sessions is also seeking participating photographers across the U.S. More professional photographers are needed in every state to make Red Thread Sessions as successful as possible.
