Inspiration Through Art

I got a wonderful email yesterday that my application to be a participating photographer 
with Inspiration Through Art had been approved and accepted.
I cried. Happy wonderful tears.
This is what I felt like I was meant to do with my camera.
In a nutshell, this organization lets families with critical ill or special needs children
connect with a photographer who provides them with a photo session to celebrate
the small heroes in their life.
Really. Really. Amazing.
 It is basically a waiting game, I wait until chosen by a family...
I can hardly stand it.

it may not start with smiles...

 When I met Noah, he was not impressed with my camera.
Or me.
Or my bubbles.
Or feeding the ducks.

Poor guy. It was a hot day. And I kept following him around.
He wasn't unhappy, or scared, or crying.

So, I let him be a toddler in the park.
Let him wander for a bit.

 Then, we busted out the cookies.

 Then, we busted out the finger puppets.
And the tickling...

 And then, we were best buddies!
(he's got my lion puppet on his teeny finger!)
 While I had him happy,
mom and dad jumped in...

I always carry bubbles, & finger puppets.
They usually do the trick.
I love working so hard :)
It's hardly working!

sweet Bella- 7 months

 Taking pictures for new friends is amazing.
And taking pictures for family is equally rewarding...
I love watching babies grow up before my eyes!
