This session was extra special in many ways. This family did a photo session with me this spring and I have an extra special place in my heart for children with special needs and their family. What these families and children have to navigate through in life is so many mountains that I could write a blog post separately on that itself. During this session the parents wanted to give the children’s grandparents time to be in photos with their children who they help and spend so much time with. Will is 5 and has Autism, Nick is 4 and has Spina Bifida and Emma is 2 and is a very busy two-year old. All together these children are filled with love and keep their parents and grandparents busy and on their toes but put extra special smiles on their faces when they achieve so many things. As a photographer I hope to achieve my goal to make it fun and stress free for the families and children involved in the photo session but also want to try to capture the pure joy the children bring to their grandparents. When I asked to take photos of just the grandparents together their were tears in their eyes. I often find that the parents or grandparents have not taken photos together since their wedding….I love to try to add this into my sessions if I can. I hope you enjoy.
