What a blessing it was for me to have been given the opportunity to photograph this dear girl enjoying a little backyard pool time with her Nana not too long ago. A child with special needs and without abilities that many of us take for granted, she certainly has many incredible attributes all her own — including the ability to give and receive a whole lot of love! Though she may not speak with words, she finds many other ways to communicate. That giant smile of hers, for example, well, that just speaks volumes. It was my honor to capture a few moments of this sweet, beautiful child having a little fun in the sun.
