I had an idea to start taking pictures for kids who are a lot like my son, Cooper. The ones who might not sit still and pose for the camera or make eye contact. The families who might want to participate in a photo shoot but whose plans can change daily depending on therapy schedules, sleep and other factors. And that's really how I got started.
When I'm not taking photos or spending time with Cooper, I work full-time in marketing.
The two verses below are the inspiration behind my logo and name.
“"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."”
“He counts the stars and calls them all by name”
Where do your sessions occur?
I work directly with each client to select a location that works for them. For some with special needs, a familiar location is best, while others may have elopement concerns and require a location that would prevent little ones from running off. Most of my sessions are in the northwest Georgia and Chattanooga area, but I can travel for an additional fee.
What other accommodations do you offer?
I am mindful of noise, bright lights and other sensory-related issues when I shoot. Since most of my sessions are done outdoors in natural light, no flash is needed, but for indoor lighting, I have a lighting kit with a constant light to prevent a distracting flash.
Do you only serve the special needs community?
Although that is my passion and my purpose with this photography endeavor, I do offer sessions for everyone. However, working with special-needs families is my speciality.
