Liz contacted me about 11 days ago about a family session but at that time, I had no idea the importance.
Her and her husband, Jamie have been through a lot over the past 3.5 years, ever since starting the adoption process of a sweet little girl named Estaya. She was born in the Congo and lived there until 2 weeks ago when she finally arrived in Canada. Legally, she was a Canadian citizen and fully adopted but the country would not let her leave. Liz went and lived there for 7.5 months until the president of the country signed off on her release and they were finally allowed to make the long journey home to Canada.
Thank you Liz, for inviting me in to photograph your sweet, sweet family. Estaya is so incredibly gorgeous and so well behaved, I wish you nothing but the best for you three and look forward to watching your family grow.
Welcome Home Estaya!
