Lewis Street Studios
Parents of children with special needs often do not even attempt to have professional portraits made of their children. They fear - or have learned - that photographers may not understand the emotional needs of their child. My job is to put those concerns to rest.
I have been certified as a Direct Support Professional by New York State. I work every day in the special needs community. This unique background and training helps make my interaction with your child easier. I fully understand the payoff for not pushing, not rushing and waiting for acceptance and trust.
I create portraits that are entirely different from those created in a studio by using surroundings familiar to you and your child – allowing the child to be relaxed and comfortable, so their true essence can be captured on film. I create warm, relaxed portraits in your child's own room, their own backyard, at the beach, the canal or at your child’s favorite local park.
