Appletini Photography is proud to be a part of Red Thread Sessions, a group of photographers that donate their time and talent to local families to celebrate their newly adopted child.
We are so honored to be a part The Red Thread Sessions organization, and we love to create photographic memories for these amazing families. Adoption has always been a part of our hearts, as it is something that Tiffany and David look forward to someday. We are very passionate about giving back, and this is just one small way that Appletini Photography can help our community. We wholeheartedly look forward to our Red Thread sessions, and we honored to share journey.
Why “Red Thread” Sessions? The term “red thread” comes from an ancient Chinese proverb, which states that an invisible red thread connects each one of us to the people that we are destined to meet. This proverb holds a very special meaning for adoptive families, as it shows that adoptive children were destined to meet their adoptive parents. It symbolizes the bond that all adoptive children have with their adoptive parents. Thus, this term became a common saying in the adoption community. Seemingly, “Red Thread” was the perfect name for this organization.
Do you know someone who is adopting? Through our donation to Red Thread Sessions, we are able to offer six families a free photography session. Red Thread Sessions celebrates the blossoming love, new relationships, and the range of emotions felt. We will capture images of the adoptive family as well as individual shots of your adoptive child. All session fees are waived, and they include a set of images.
These sessions include one of the following:
- Family portrait session within the first 3 months of the finalized adoption to capture family portraits of the whole family
- Homecoming session where the photographer meets the adoptive family at the airport upon their arrival home to capture the first moments with their family
With our participation in Red Thread, your session fee is free. However, there is a requirement from Red Thread that you sign a release for permission to post the images to their blog located on http://www.redthreadsessions.com, and we will also post images on our website.
All Red Thread Sessions include:
- 4×6 prints of ALL final images
- 2-3 image sneak peek, posted online (with your permission) within 48 hours
- Image Reveal Session, complete with a slideshow. Additional prints, products, and digital files can be purchased at 25% off.
- Photographer’s time and talent
If you choose, you can purchase all of the digital files from the session at a discounted rate. We also have a large selection of products and prints to choose from. We are happy to work with you to create just what you are looking for.
