Tuscarawas & Stark County OH Red Thread Adoption Photographer | NE Ohio

There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says, “An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.”

I feel like not many people are aware of this program available to new parents who are adopting or the fact that there are 100’s of photographers nationwide who offer their services, love and time for this organization.


This is taken from Red Thread Session’s website:

About Red Thread Sessions

Red Thread Sessions was started in 2011 by two custom photographers in Texas and Maryland, both whom added to their families through adoption. Feeling the need in their communities to celebrate the beauty of adoption through photography, Red Thread Sessions was born. Soon after, many other photographers throughout the U.S. felt moved to donate their time as well. Red Thread sessions not only captures family portraits of new families, it also capture the precious, happy, confusing, exciting, exhausting, traumatic, life-changing time that is so often brief and fleeting in the life of an adoptive family.

Why “Red Thread” Sessions?

The Ancient Chinese Proverb is a commonly-used saying within the adoption community. It symbolizes the bond that all adoptive children have with their adoptive parents, even before they meet. An invisible “red thread” connects them to the people they are destined to meet. Although this Proverb truly relates to all people, it has a particularly strong connection to adoptive families and seemed like the perfect name for this organization.


 I wanted to also take a few moments and explain why I became a Red Thread Photographer. Even though my husband and I have never adopted, it’s always been something deep on my heart and I find myself drawn to families who’ve adopted. When I was a little girl, my Barbie dolls always had at least 1 family who adopted. I imagine this originally came from my Aunt and Uncle adopting all of their babies, 4 in all, and from all different backgrounds and reasons. I love each and every one of their stories. I also have friends who were adopted and other friends who have adopted or are planning to adopt. I love the heart behind it. The love. The instant bond that makes you a family. It doesn’t matter how you became a family. Just that you ARE. And that right there is why I became a Red Thread Session Photographer. My extended family is made up of all kinds from all over. Some were born into. Some were adopted. Some have been from a divorced family and their father or mother married into our family and we gained cousins and Aunt’s and Uncle’s. I have half siblings and it doesn’t make a difference how I feel about them. Family is family no matter how they arrived. ❤

All that being said, these sessions are free (travel fee’s may apply) and are limited to how many I can accept each year!! In order to comply with the Red Thread guidelines, the adoption session needs to be completed within 3 months of the child coming home (barring any unusual situations where health complications prohibit that from happening). If you are planning to adopt in 2015, or know of someone else who is, and want to reserve a time for one of these sessions please contact me. I offer a free session, your choice of 5 digital images selected from your finished proof gallery and a set of 4×6 proof images with a 15% discount on any optional print/product purchases. Or you can choose one of my full sessions at a 50% discount. View investment information here regarding baby’s first year plans as well as maternity and family session information.

Dover New Philadelphia OH baby photographer | finn’s 7 month studio session

Hello Finn! We meet again. I look forward to this baby boy’s milestone sessions every few months. His Momma shares my love of simplicity and keeping the focus solely on baby. ❤ I mean, who can improve on his sweetness?! 🙂 To prove it to you, you can go here to view his newborn session. We did do an adorable photo to incorporate his big brother’s love of baseball in Finn’s newborn portraits. We plan on trying something with them again for his 9 month shoot to show how much he’s grown! ❤ I do love showing baby’s growth and recreating photos in that way. I’m looking forward to it and it’s a great keepsake for parents to have.

Tuscarawas County Ohio baby + child photographer | Dover New Philadelphia OH | Mack + Hudson

We all know that 6 month baby sessions are high on my favorite things to photograph list. 🙂 Add in a sweet 3 year old brother and it’s a big win in my book! 🙂 Meet Mack (3 years old) and Hudson (6 months old). These adorable brothers recently moved to Ohio from Virgina along with their big sister and Mom & Dad. I get to see big sister again in just a few short weeks for her 6 year old studio session and Hudson’s 9 month milestone as well. 😀

I cannot get over Hudson’s flyaway hair-do! Can he be any more precious?! And Mack & his tie? I die. ❤

Fun tidbit: Mack has had his photo taken with the same tie for every milestone session beginning with his newborn shoot. The photographer they used in Virginia can be found here. She is pretty amazing. And that makes me feel even more special and happy that these little one’s Momma chose *ME* as their new Ohio photographer. ❤ Thank you Natisha!Dover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.com
