I’ve known Stephanie since high school and when she got married to Jim I was lucky to photograph their wedding. They had two beautiful children, two years apart, Katie and Tyler. When they were young, I photographed them in a lovely english garden. This is the wall portrait that is displayed at their home.
Relationships are a key to my success in my business. I enjoy all of my clients and their children but there are a few who remain in my heart.
When I met Tyler as a baby, he was so sweet and angelic and he reminded me of my sister Jane.
Now as a young adult, he is flirtatious and very confident, just like my sister Jane was. I think it’s a down syndrome thing:)
Stephanie and Tyler have a unique relationship and it was so much fun capturing the love they share for each other.
I could see it in the way Stephanie touched Tyler’s cheek or kissed his forehead.
It’s not easy raising a child who is typical never mind a child with special needs, most times it can be very challenging.
Of all the sessions I’ve done, I’m in awe of the way these women are towards their child/children, young or older, they are all the same.
They all want what is best for their loved ones. To be treated with kindness and compassion and live a life that is full of possibilities.
Tyler enjoyed playing his guitar for me and was showing off a bit and I loved it!
