Meet Trevor & Briana! They are a sweet and fun couple and I had a blast creating their profile. I felt like we had a lot in common and if we lived near each other we could totally be friends. I truly hope their family grows soon.
Sean & Rachael are working with the same agency we used for adopting our daughter! They have amazing style and I truly loved designing their profile! Kandace Photography did a docu-style shoot for them and the photo look straight out of an Anthro catalogue. But don't be fooled by the polished looked - they are also kind, warm, and so fun!
I had such fun creating a profile for this family!! Kathleen loves photography so she had a million great photos for me to use. Their amazing photos combined with their sweet personalities make this profile one of my current favorites!
It's my birthday this week and after being spoiled (a lot!) by my family & friends, I thought it would be nice to give a little something away.
So...for the next week please enjoy this FREE Love Makes a Family printable. I've been receiving tons of requests from clients for designs with black stripes so I thought I would share the love for those who also love that look. It's sized to 8 x 10 and includes a full bleed. Just click on the image to access a pdf file that you can save. For personal use only.
If you post this online anywhere please make sure to link back to my blog. Thanks!

UPDATE!! John & Jessica are now a family of 3! They were matched with an expectant mom earlier this summer and their son was born in early August. So exciting!!
I met Jessica a few months ago because a mutual friend connected us (thanks, Kristin!). Jessica and John were just getting started on their adoption journey and were looking for adoptive families to connect with. It turns out they live only about 2 miles from us! We met up one night to chat and I'm so glad we did! I've now been able to hang out with John and Jessica a few times, both for their profile and socially. They are kind, fun-loving, and thoughtful and I am so thankful that God made our paths cross.
I love their style and it was so fun creating their profile. Sometimes it feels like the profile just creates itself and this was one of those times. I am especially pleased with their 'about' pages! These are some of my favorite that I've ever done.

UPDATE: Kathleen & Gaetano are now a family of three! They have adopted a beautiful baby boy.
Kathleen & Gaetano are a fun and engaging couple who are hoping to adopt! I've had such a great time getting to know them and I love how their profile came out. They did a photo shoot with Kandace Photography and their photos are so amazing - they really helped make the book extra special!

UPDATE: Stephen & Jessie's family has officially grown! After a few months of waiting, they welcomed their new daughter into their family. I'm so excited for them!
Stephen and Jessie are some of my first clients that are out of state and I'm honored that they trusted me with their family profile. They were a joy to work with and they are such a fun and lively family!! I could not have asked for better clients. I truly enjoyed creating their profile and I can't wait to see it in print.

I asked my talented and thoughtful husband to write the next part of our story. Enjoy...
In the last entry, Dani described the third surprise of our adoption: the blessing and joy of open adoption. She perfectly articulated how the three days in our hospital with Baby Girl and Emily (birth mom) showed us that our family didn’t just grow with the addition of the little one, but also with the addition of Emily, who now has a special and important place in our family.
Corrie recently emailed me to let me know they had a match & placement! This is only 1 month after we finished their profile. I'm beyond excited for them and so thankful to be a small part of their adoption journey.
It's been such a pleasure working with John and Corrie! They are fun, out-going, super adventurous, and basically just a joy to be around. They live a little far from me, but they had a mini-shoot with Kandace Photography so I got to meet them in person after talking over video chat and email. I hope their profile does a good job of representing their wonderful personalities and I can't wait for their family to grow!
