This beautiful family of six has become a family of eight!  This Colton Red Thread adoption session was at Christian & Liz’s small family farm outside Portland.  Liz and Christian and their four sons fostered two sisters for about a year and finally their adoption was complete. And to make it really “real”, what better way than to create family photos with all the children, so the girls know that they’re fully and permanently part of the family now. The house itself is a pride and joy–Christian has been working on it for years to make it just right for their family. Their farm has cows, chickens, a garden, and a forest with a stream. Not only that, they ALSO have a trampoline and two swings and a mega tree house! Can you imagine a more perfect place to grow up?! Does that not sound like kid paradise? They play outside all the time, soaking up the fresh air and animals and nature. I was enthralled being there, and a little jealous too. 🙂

I loved meeting this family. Liz may have a lot on her plate keeping up with six children, but it was clear that she loves all of them.  Both parents work hard every day for them to have a great life. I could tell how much they all loved each other. Congratulations on officially becoming a family!
