Because I’m the Photographer

I hear Owen won’t tolerate photos. He’s adamant.

And Owen isn’t a kid to be cajoled or bribed into it.  Kids with autism present lots of challenges for engaging for photos. Infinitely rewarding but definitely a slower unfolding. When I heard that he wasn’t cooperating at all for photos my heart sort of dropped a little in dread (1 hour can be a loooong time with any kid any age that doesn’t want to be photographed).

And then all our hearts opened up a little. Because I guess after 8 years the photographer is who I am in his world. And so there was dancing and jokes, tickling and hugs and lots and lots of photos.

Here’s a few of our past sessions if you are interested in that sort of nonsense….

Judy Wing - I have been with him since he was 3 months old. He is the most challenging and the most wonderful. These pictures capture everything he can be. I am his grandmother, his caretaker and always his Gabbie, that is what he called me and I will always be. He is the best and the worst, but I love him forever.

Kit - Owen has a special place in my heart and I am grateful for knowing him. He makes you be present, enjoy the details of life and of course, smile a lot. Thank you for sharing these beautifully captured moments.
