Yesterday, I met Ali and her family. We had a quick mini session an hour before sunset. We had the perfect light. I had the perfect subjects! And like the other special photo sessions, I did in the past, we instantly connected. We had common ground. I didn’t even try to look for something to talk about.

Ali was born with down syndrome. Her family loves her so much. It didn’t really matter. Ali is beautiful in her own way. She giggles and throws kisses. Her dad calls her princess! Because she really is the princess of the family.

It takes a village to raise a child but it takes MORE than a village to raise a child with special needs. Tread gently!

Thank you Pabriga  family for allowing me to capture how special you ALL are.
