In 2013, I applied to become a volunteer for the Red Thread Sessions organization. I was ecstatic to hear I was approved to be apart of their wonderful team. I volunteer with programs that pull at my heart-strings; this organization is exactly that.

What is a Red Thread Session?
A Red Thread Session is a complimentary photography session held during your homecoming or shortly after you have become an adoptive family. Depending on what type of Red Thread Session you would like, our sessions will capture you as a new family and all of the emotions that go along with it. Photographers will also create portraits of your new child if you like. Participating photographers have agreed to celebrate your adoption by completely waiving their session fee and offering edited proofs from your session at no cost to you. The size & quantity of proofs, as well as whether the proofs will be digital or printed, has been left to the discretion of each photographer. Each photographer sets his or her own policies and product pricing. Travel fees and additional subject fees may still apply, please make sure to ask your participating photographer for details.
