Heather will share the skills you need to optimize your sessions and album designs, serve this community and develop this niche as part of your creative offerings. Special needs kids and their families deserve gorgeous pictures. Heather will talk about special needs kids, including how to take a diagnosis into account, how to serve these families with empathy, and how to provide them with beautiful photo prints and albums. Set your business apart by learning how to serve this community. Each of these children are different, but they all have families who love them, they all have things they like or don’t like, just like every other kid. And every single one of them is more than their diagnosis. We want these kids to feel like the special, wonderful people they are, but we as photographers should also be making it NORMAL for everyone else to see that too. The more we show and include the unique, the less different and more approachable these children become.
