Photography for children with special needs is very unique and it takes someone special to capture these moments and to understand the situation they both are in. Every child is unique, every diagnosis is different and every photoshoot with me will be planned carefully to accommodate each child's need. Due to Epilepsy, sensory challenges and other stimuli that could possibly trigger a behavior, flash is not used during photoshoots. I use natural lighting and special equipment to capture these moments in their world. Patience is key and I don't expect any child to meet me at my level, as I will meet them at theirs and they are not expected to enter my world, its a blessing when they allow me to enter thiers.
The BLOG is where you will find real life and real resources. I have spent a majority of my children's life advocating for them, teaching them, loving them and most importantly, praying for them. Please use my experiences as a way to find light in your tunnel. I am not a psychiatrist, I am not a physician, I a mother to amazing twins whom both have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Severe Autism, ADHD, OCD, multiple forms of anxieties and the list continues. Don't feel sad for us, be proud of how far we have come and take this movement as a blessing from my family to yours by allowing us to share our real story and resources that may be a benefit to yours. There is no need to be ashamed in the gift GOD has given us, we are the special ones that he has chosen and it is on us to keep our community strong, educated and most importantly, loved.
