In many ways, this session reminds me of the reasons why I became a photographer. This family won my session at a fundraiser-auction run by a family whose son has Cri-du-chat Syndrome. The proceeds of the auction went to the 5P Society. And, although my schedule is very full, I found that it gave me great joy to make room in my calendar for this session. In my earliest days as a photographer, I wanted to create images that made people feel and that helped families hold onto the beauty in life that is so often fleeting. Donating to this auction helped me feel and remember the beauty of the human spirit. The parents in this family gave generously, and it was my pleasure to meet them and capture their family's unique vibrance. I hope you enjoy some of their images.
