formed in my heart

We look at adoption as a very sacred exchange. It was not done lightly on either side.

I would dedicate my life to this child. ~ Jamie Lee Curtis, actress and adoptive mother

I’m constantly amazed at how many ways our lives intersect. Tammy and I first met in 2001 when she was my oldest son’s first grade teacher. We kept in touch over the years and reconnected when she and her husband decided to pursue the sticky, but wonderful, world of adoption. I offered my insight based on our adoption experiences with our three youngest children and wished her the best of luck. Shortly thereafter, Tammy and her husband welcomed Miss A into their family. Recently, with the addition of Miss I, they became a family of four!

Our session was in a field behind the country house we stay in when visiting in Louisiana. It was a field filled with horses, included a feisty miniature one named Pumpkin, and a flock of geese. And a dog or two. In other words, lots of entertainment.

Tammy  ~ Thank you so much for sharing your family with me! Your daughters are beautiful and your husband is such a fantastic, caring man. You are blessed!

    Tammy - Carey, you have know me for over 10 years now and have known how much I have desired to be a mother, and finally, I am. I am so grateful that we did our photo sessions when we did it when we did. I remember talking to you about putting it off because the day before our scheduled session I had lost the bottom part of my vision, was suffering from migraines (even in the pictures), and felt awful. I had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called vasculitus which came within hours of taking my sight completed or worse my life. And I had no ideas. I will always cherish our pictures and these will be most meaningful pictures ever taken. My road to recovery has been slow and the doctors aren’t sure if I will ever get my signt back or just how much this disease will control me. I tell you all this as I look at other people sights and see how they use excuses to put off taking a family portriat. If I had not made it through that weekend that we took the pictures (which was possible and I didn’t even know it)my girls and husband would have had something so valuable, our pictures.
    SO, people, do NOT put off until tomorrow what you should do today!! Life is too precious and far too short….cherish it, every moment! ILY Carey and thanks for giving us these memories!! TammyReplyCancel
