A few months ago I was contacted by Madison at the Sunshine Foundation of Canada and asked if I would donate my time to photograph a deserving family who had a child lucky enough to receive a wish through the foundation. I was more than happy to say yes!
The Fowlers have had 3 of their 4 children receive wishes from the Sunshine Foundation. The fourth being only 16 months old and spending over 330 days in the hospital already.
As I was photographing I couldn’t help but think that it takes a very special kind of person to welcome not one, but four special needs children into their lives. Two of the children are foster kids so for their protection their portraits can not be posted online, however I can post DoraLee and Damien!
I loved photographing these kids, I think we all have something to learn from them – so carefree and happy! The Fowlers were very down to earth people and had real expectations about their session. I truly had a lot of fun photographing the four kids. Going into this session I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I think these photographs turned out better then anyone could have anticipated.
