Aunt Documents Adoption of Beautiful Baby Boy into Family

Kate T. Parker, the talented photographer we introduced you to back in March, opens the doors to us once again. This time, instead of showing us magical moments of childhood through her two daughters, she turns the camera on the newest addition to her extended family, a beautiful little boy named Sam. In a new project she calls Blended, Kate highlights the beauty of adoption through the eyes of her sister.

Blended follows the journey of Sam, my nephew, from the day he was born and adopted into the unbelievably excited arms of my sister and brother-in-law as well as the rest of our extended family,” she tells us. “We are so in love with this amazing little man who has brought such joy into our lives. There are so many wonderful and interesting things I am documenting, the power of love, the agonizing wait (and then elation) of adoption, the welcoming of another life into our clan, and what it means to be a biracial family.”

In her usual style, Kate shows us real, candid moments like Sam crying or sleeping. It’s a beautiful reminder to appreciate the everyday moments in a child’s life. (They are so fleeting.)
