Red Thread Family Photography Sessions

What is a Red Thread Session?

  The invisible Red Thread that connects us to someone we are destined to meet and become sewed to, with the invisible red threads of the heart and love...and of course destiny. 


A Red Thread Session is a free photography session held during your homecoming or shortly after you have become an adoptive family. I personally have agreed to donate my time and talent by completely waiving your session fee, retainer, or deposit. Any location outside of 100 miles - travel fees may still apply, please make sure to pick a location that is within 100 miles of 91766. 

  How do I qualify for a Red Thread Session?  
  If you have added to your family through adoption within the last 3 months, you qualify for a Red Thread Session! You may be asked to show proof of your adoption date given the charitable nature of a Red Thread Session. Each family qualifies for only one Red Thread Session per adoption and must sign a Red Thread Session model release.  

  How do I schedule a Red Thread Session?  Simple.  Call me or email me so we can set up a date/time/location and we will schedule your family portrait session.  You will be asked to show your adoption papers, considering the charitable nature of these sessions.  Melissa Pleasant - 909-764-8203    Email :

  2. A documentary/journalistic portrait session includes but is not limited to documentary journalistic portrait sessions, courtroom sessions, and airport homecoming sessions. 
  3. A one hour on location birth photography session to capture the birth of the adoptive child in an open adoption. 

   What do I get with a Red Thread Session?  
  All of your images taken, digitally edited and enhanced and uploaded to a private online gallery for viewing and sharing, a USB with all images sent to your home, for printing and creating announcements.  Print released images to you.
