When my son was born, his perfect little feet turned all the way in. We thought he was just a bit crammed and needed to stretch out (he was 10.5 lbs, after all). But, when we found out he had a condition that needed extensive treatment, our whole world stopped. We were fortunate though, Dylan only had club foot. A diagnosable, treatable condition that shouldn’t affect his later life.
Taking him to all his treatments opened my eyes (and heart) to the little troopers and their families that are made to endure much more than they should. Every trip to the hospital showed me little faces full of joy…seemingly unaware of the difficulties their little body was dealing with. And, parents with the tell tale worry lines, sense of complete exhaustion and expression of pride as they watched their child overcoming their challenges.
Somewhere along the way, I decided that these families deserved some free stuff! I can’t smooth the rough road they’re on but I can give them portraits that celebrate the wonderful life that their child is living!
If you know a Little Trooper, please send me an email letting me know about their journey. Also, please help me in spreading the word on these sessions so deserving families can benefit.
Little Trooper sessions are completely free and include full resolution digital negatives. In most cases, families should live within 30 miles of Sebastopol but I can make special arrangements for travel, if needed. I make myself as available as possible, but can typically only schedule 1-2 sessions per month.
Please contact for more information.
