double dose : san diego family photographer

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing a family with a wonderfully touching and unique story.  Meet Kerstin & Dan, a young, successful & fun (not to mention gorgeous) couple who had been struggling for years with infertility.

Last fall they decided to adopt a baby and in January of this year they were matched with a young woman who was due to deliver in June.    Little Grace was born this summer and what a blessing she is!

But the story doesn’t end there….

In March, Kerstin found out that she was pregnant!  What makes it even more touching (in my mind) is that they still went through with the adoption of baby Grace knowing that they were going to have 2 children just 5 months apart in age.   That is a BIG job!   Heck, I struggle with 2 kids that are 26 months apart.   I think so many people would have backed out of the adoption, but Kerstin & Dan were committed to becoming Grace’s loving parents and I applaud them for that.  Such a beautiful family!
