As a Marietta Family Photographer, I get to photograph so many adorable kids. Each year, the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta does a calendar shoot. There were photographers in several different areas of Atlanta helping out this wonderful cause.
How I got involved…
I got involved with the Down Syndrome community when a sweet friend of mine asked me for a photo a few years ago. She wanted just one picture of hers on so she’d have an updated cover photo to World Down Syndrome Day. When she asked me, I only had to think for a split second before saying yes. After talking to her, it occurred to me there might be others who would like updated photos too.
I asked her if she had other friends who might like a new photo too and she did. So I suggested doing World Down Syndrome Day minis. I enjoyed that day so much that I reached out to the local Down Syndrome community and began working with them on different projects and activities here and there. I also host World Down Syndrome Day minis every year, since that year. My kids help now that they’re getting older. I have learned sometimes, children are even better at wrangling smiles than adults are!
It’s seriously the most fun day every single time I work with this group. The parents are amazing. The kids themselves are amazing. The whole thing is just so much fun. It’s an incredible cause for incredible people and I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to be a part of it.
Follow and book…
I wanted to share this with you so you could see that it’s not just photographing newborns that I’m passionate about . It’s capturing the unique and wonderful personalities of each and every individual that ends up in front of my lens. It’s creating memories that families and friends will cherish for years or even decades to come. And it’s using my talents and skills as a Marietta family photographer to help bring awareness and community where it’s needed.
