Officially Accredited by Special Kids Photography of America

Special Kids Photography of America is a nonprofit organization and has no salaried staff.  Special Kids Photography of America was founded out of a young Pennsylvania mother's frustration, humiliation and hurt experienced at a photo studio where she went to commission a portrait of her one-year-old disabled son. The photographer tried to turn her away because her baby did not look like other infants. After her tears dried, she got mad and realized that professional photographers need to be trained with researched knowledge and how to be comfortable with photographing special children. That's what SKPA does: Train photographers and advocate for special children through beautiful photography.

I am so grateful to have become accredited with Special Kids Photography of America​!   This is something that is very close to my heart and in 2016 I am hoping to put together some events. I look forward to helping raise money and farthing their cause in the community.
