One Lucky Baby



Joaquin is one photographed baby, let me tell you. We had the pleasure of meeting a new friend and mom of a child with DS last weekend, Michelle Slape. She is a photographer in a nearby city and she is considering specializing in special needs children. For DS Awareness Month she offered a free sitting for families with a child with Down syndrome. We took her up on her offer because...well...I just didn't think we had enough photos of Joaquin. Hahahaha!!!

Anyway, I'm glad we did it. One...Michelle is adorable, talented and she is a mom of two sweet boys...one who happens to have DS and the world's most infectious grin. His name is Cody and I can't wait to meet him next time. Two...it's fun to see different photography styles and to help inspire a possible career direction. I hit it off with Michelle the moment I met her and I hope we can get together again with our kids sometime soon.

Here is her latest blog entry. Enjoy! And THANK YOU Michelle for a wonderful morning and some beautiful photos. I can't wait to see the rest of them!
