"Photo sessions had always been a source of anxiety for Jason. The [H&L trained photographer] captured wonderful images that truly enhance his self-esteem."

-- parent

"Recently at a wedding I spotted a boy who was quite restless. I later learned he has autism. I was able to capture 5 beautiful candids with smiles for the parents who were practically in tears when they received the images."

-- photographer

"I was blown away by the drive and compassion this organization [formerly Special Kids Photography] and its members have. We are proud to be associated with [them]."
