Like all other parents, the moms and dads of special needs children want to celebrate their families' special moments with memorable portraits. This guide, Photographing Children with Special Needs , shows photographers how to create these images, from designing a shoot to meet their subjects, unique needs, to working effectively with children who may act (and interact) differently than other kids.
Photographers will learn how to set goals, what questions to ask parents about their child's needs and abilities, how to prepare the camera room for a safe shoot, how to make each child feel safe and comfortable, and more.
For various conditions, including cancer, spina bifida, autism, Down's syndrome, epilepsy and more, you'll learn what to expect and what unique steps you can take to ensure a pleasant and successful shoot. Armed with this knowledge, you'll be able to work confidently, ensure your subject's comfort and safety, and, most importantly, successfully capture each child's unique personality on film.
