When it rains, don't fight it. Play in it.
It's been a miserably wet spring. So many of my photo shoots were either postponed due to rain, or moved indoors. My photo shoot for the June issue of Little Rock Special Family was no exception. But photographing two very active children indoors is not ideal.
So instead of fighting the rain (downpour actually), we played in it.
This issue of Special Family features the Carper family. The story features both Caroline and her brother cole. Both kids have a rare inherited eye disease that appears early in life and is responsible for blindness or very low vision. But today, both children have the gift of sight thanks to a ground-breaking surgery. You can read more on the family, and see more photos, in their digital issue.
Also featured in this same issue of Little Rock Special Family is a fun story on a program that offers job training and life skills to those with developmental disabilities. I photographed the B.R.A.V.O. (Bridging Recreational and Vocational Opportunities) Program at Independent Care Management (ICM).
The non-profit organization services Arkansans with disabilities. I photographed those who work at Biscuits, a local retail store in Little Rock that makes gourmet pet treats. You can read more on the program by going here.
