Special Needs Photography

90% of my clients this fall were family and children- and I LOVE this. I love kids, and I love working with parents and hearing their story. And each family is so different that it brings something different to the shoot. In October, I had the privilege of photographing this awesome family. Let's call them the K family.

Aren't they just the sweetest? 

Mrs. K wrote me awhile back asking if I would be willing to photograph their family. She explained that 2 of their kiddos have some special needs and that sometimes it can be a huge challenge to find a photographer wiling to work with them. I was, of course, delighted to say yes! Their shoot went wonderfully. Yes, there were tears, promises of a treat and time at the playground afterward, and lots of pep talk, but we managed to get some beautiful pictures of their family and children. 

It was so sad to me that some families may not ever get family pictures simply because they can't find a photographer willing to work with their family. I believe that every family should at least be given the option and opportunity to have someone capture these moments. Kids grow up fast, and before you know it, 5 years will pass and you don't have any family pictures. 

Here at Molly Thomas Photography, I strive to work with you and your family- no matter what the situation is. And I will do my best to make it an enjoyable experience for you and your kids. Do you or someone you know have kids with special needs? I would love to be the one to take your next pictures. Please pass my name and website along!

-Special thanks to the K family for being willing to represent the special needs community in St. Louis!
