Ron & Lizzy…Two special people

Talk about two fun people to be around. That’s Ron and Lizzy. Ron and Lizzy are both very special people. While they may have some life challenges with intellectual and physical disabilities, they are not letting life pass them by.

When I photographed them this past weekend, I continued to be driven by these two quotes:

  • “It is important to click with people than to click the shutter.” — Alfred Eisenstaedt
  • “A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” — Edward Steichen

In the studio, the three of us were having so much fun. Laughs, funny faces, pauses, and simple joy.


Joshua: Now Here’s a Special Kid

I’m getting certified with Special Kids Photography of America. If you have a special kid and you want photos, but have had a terrible experience with other photographers, maybe we can meet to see if I can get you some photos that will make you smile and cry!

See all the top picks from today…
