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 Extended Family Photographer | the family’s all here!

Every once in awhile I do extended family sessions and I usually get a little nervous beforehand because they can be a little chaotic. I feel like that impending chaos just makes the end result that much more satisfying. 🙂 This family was the sweetest! All of them. Some live here in Tuscarawas County and others were visiting over the Thanksgiving holiday. The visit was the reason for the photo this year. I was worrying a little due to the cold weather we were having but they were troopers! We arrived at Warther’s Museum & Gardens in Dover and got right to work. Lucky for me the kids were amazing too. Just look at that grin on their sweet baby girl!!! ❤ Plus they all looked amazing and that really helps as well!!

Dover, New Philadelphia OH newborn + family photographer + newborn mentoring | callie + zelda mae

This past August, I had the opportunity to meet and mentor Jamie, of Tiltawhirl Photography. Let me tell you first, she is so sweet and down to earth. Jamie is a fantastic photographer too! I’ve been following her for awhile and just this past year she has sky rocketed. Make sure you stop by her website and view her work. Absolutely breath-taking!!! And her house!!! GAH! I love it. So adorable and well designed!! It was a joy to spend the day with her photographing and snuggling on little bitty newborns! We spent some time going over setting up for a newborn shoot in the studio before the babies arrived. Once we were all ready, we jumped right in!! My approach to teaching is very hands on. I learn best that way and feel that most others do as well. Typically I will start the posing off first and have my mentoree perfect the pose or put their own spin on it as we go. Of course, safety is always key. I am there to make sure baby stays safe and secure at all times. I will show the basics of posing different set-ups and then if baby is willing, I will have my mentoree try it as well. With Jamie, she needed just basic posing skills and more Photoshop editing of newborn skin (it can be so tricky!!!). We used natural lighting for these sessions since that is what Jamie was most used to and had available. 🙂 A little different for me since I haven’t done natural light in studio for years, but it was fun!

First we photographed Jamie’s own niece, 7 days new Callie. ❤ Little sweet pea!Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (4)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (3)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (2)We also photographed 4 days new, Zelda Mae (LOVE ❤ THE NAME!) and her family. 🙂 Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (7)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (6)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (1)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (8)She wasn’t entirely sure about this idea… 😉 Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (9)I was busy and mainly concentrating on making sure Jamie was having a good experience and being hands on for photographing and posing the babies, so I honestly didn’t take many photos myself. I did manage to grab at least one behind the scenes shot of Jamie capturing the family shot of Zelda Mae and her Mom and Dad. ❤ Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (5)Are you interested in mentoring with me? Contact me at info@brandiwilliamsonphotography.com with NEWBORN MENTORING in the subject line. 🙂

Here is some of what Jamie had to say after mentoring:

“Thank you, Brandi!! You cut down my editing time so much, and if I can just get past my fears about putting something out there and then wishing I could get it back and edit and re-edit and edit again, then hopefully I will be in a place where I’m not spending so much time stressing!! I am so grateful to you for all you taught me. I am actually excited for the next time I will have a newborn in the studio. And I actually think I’m prepared if I would get a last minute call for a newborn, whereas before our mentoring session, I would just panic and do all I could to find another photographer for whomever called. (But I will continue to take great comfort knowing that I have an amazing photographer just down the road to refer clients to!) Working with you was awesome, and I hope to have the opportunity to do it again.” – Jamie E.
