Adoption Day!

I met the Molony Family at Evolve Aikido, where their son was training with my kids. It was easy to become fond of them, and enjoyed hearing updates on the journey they were on. Their boy, Aidan, was placed in their home- and they began the exhausting but worthwhile process to adopt him. When they were (finally!) given their adoption date, they asked if I would photograph this life changing event.

What an honor to attend and photograph such a special moment. Congratulations, Molony family! What wonderful people this beautiful boy made parents.

The Mays kids were excited to see their grandma and great-grandma, who were visiting California from the mid-west.
