I am a proud contributor to Spectrum Inspired, a non-profit organization that connects families touched by autism to professional photographers who have a true passion for celebrating every child’s unique spirit. From the Spectrum Inspired website:
We are lifestyle photographers. What that means is we are drawn to the real, unposed, raw moments. Our favorite imagery is that which captures the true essence of a child –right now– in this moment in their lives. Before your child’s session, you will receive a detailed questionnaire. This is where we get to know your child. Their likes, their dislikes, what their favorite toy is, their limitations and interests, what (if any) sensory sensitivities they have, etc. We will then choose a location, whether it be in your own home or in an outdoor location. We will then spend about an hour together, capturing the real spirit of your child. Each session will be different, but the ultimate goal is to freeze this moment in time…to give you priceless images that you will cherish forever. Because they grow up so fast, before you know it, this moment will be gone….and I promise, this moment is worthy of documentation.
While each session will be different, the ultimate goal is to freeze this moment in time and give you priceless images that can be cherished forever. Your baby is beautiful. Let us show the world.
As an autism momma, myself, I know first hand how important it is to ensure that any photo session is a comfortable and happy experience for your child. It has always been my passion as a photographer to capture moments that families can treasure forever, but as a special needs mom, it means even more to me when I can capture a genuine smile out of a child who doesn’t smile often, or connect with a child on their level to show a glimpse into how they see the world. If I can do that for other people, then I feel like I’m doing what I was put on this Earth to do. And that is why I’m honored to be part of such an amazing group of photographers who share that passion. ♥
