Growing up, I volunteered with the swimming portion of Special Olympics. Every year I would go help time, bring swimmers to their events, cheer, and bond with these amazing little swimmers. Over time I grew fond of many of the swimmers I met and formed relationships with them. Almost 20 years later I still remember names and smiles that will forever be imprinted in my memories.
A few years ago I decided I wanted to start giving back to something I felt passionate about - and that brought me to photographing babies with Down Syndrome. I've been fortunate enough to document a few sweet families now since their babies' births and I can't wait to meet more!
Please, if you know someone who is pregnant with a baby with Down Syndrome, encourage them to reach out to me. These photo shoots are completely free of charge, no strings attached.
