hat 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.  We will also create portraits of your new child if you like.

How do I qualify for a Red Thread Session?
If you have added to your family through adoption within the last 3 months, you qualify for a Red Thread Session! Your adoption must have been final within the last 3 months. You may be asked to show proof of your adoption date given the charitable nature of a Red Thread Session. Each family qualifies for only one Red Thread Session per adoption and must sign a Red Thread Session model release.

What types of Red Thread Sessions are available?
There are 3 types of Red Thread Sessions available:

  1. a family portrait session within the first 3 months of your finalized adoption to capture family portraits of your new family,
  2. a homecoming session where the volunteering photographer meets you at the airport upon your arrival home to capture the first moments with your family
  3. a birth photography session to capture the birth of the adoptive child in an open adoption.

How much will it cost?  What will we get?

Red Thread Session are free of charge.  We are waiving our session fee and will provide each adoptive family with 11X14 portrait from the session.  We are also giving 30% discount on any additional prints.
