Documenting an International LGBT Surrogacy Journey with Newborn Photography

Jul 27, 2023

As a Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota newborn photographer, I get to meet so many adorable new babies and their families. Each session is so special to me, and I truly never forget any of my families. Last year, I was honored to document newborn portraits for an extra special family. 

You see, this newborn session included FIVE people who came together from across the world to bring this beautiful baby into this world! I’d love to share this story with you!

International Surrogacy 

In Israel, my clients dreamed of becoming parents but needed some help achieving their dreams! Unfortunately, there aren’t as many surrogacy options in Europe, so they turned to the US to find their perfect match. It turns out their perfect surrogate match lived over 6,000 miles away in Bismarck, ND! 

I became part of the story when my clients found me by Googling “Bismarck Newborn Photographers” and chose me to capture their newborn portraits. I was beyond honored to be part of this family’s amazing journey.

Once we connected and started planning their newborn session, they stated they had to include the surrogate and her partner in the session as well. We want baby boy to always know his story and have priceless images to remember how his life began. He’ll always know just how loved and wanted he was because his dads traveled across the world to have him! 

Each full-service newborn photography session is completely custom for each family that walks into my studio. I love learning more about my clients and what they’re hoping to do with their portraits long after the session is over.
