Inspiration Through Art - Meet Little Emma

I am lucky enough to belong to a wonderful organization called Inspiration Through Art. Photographers around the world donate their talent to photograph the little heroes that surround us all.

"Inspiration Through Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young people to give back, and make a difference through the beauty of art. We are artists with a passion for giving and inspiring others. Through our own artistic talents we are able to come together as one, to let children around the world know that they are loved,despite the challenges they face everyday."

Back in August I was contacted by Suzanne for session with her baby girl Emma.  I was immediately touched by her story.  I asked Suzanne to write a few words telling Emma's amazing story...

"Emma Grace was born on December 17, 2009.  Her Dad and I had an idea that she may have Down Syndrome from some early tests that were done but deep down I think I always knew.  Emma had 3 holes in her heart and a bicuspid valve that should be a tricuspid.  Two of the holes have closed and we hope the last one will as well and she wont need surgery.  The valve is working well and it is being watched. She has hypothyroidism and  reflux that she takes medication for to control. She is our miracle, and has blessed our family in so many ways.  We love her extra chromosome and every little thing about her.  Emma started walking at 20 months and I don't think anything is going to stand in her way. She has taught me to slow down and cherish the little things as well as the big milestones.  We had to wait a long time for our little Miss Em, almost 9 years but she has definitely been worth the wait!"

Here are some of my favorite images from the session:

Thank you so much Suzanne for choosing me to photograph your beautiful family.  It was truly an honor to meet you all!!

Emma and her brother look so happy. She looks extra adorable because of her smile. :)

Hello Kim, I was thinking about you and your family and wanted to stop by and check in on you. It's so wonderful to see your work. It feels like things are getting back to normal for you. God Bless ~Taj White
