Amanda: Greenville SC Special Needs Baby Photographer
When she walked into the studio with her mama carrying her, I couldn’t help but squeal delight. Amanda’s sweet arm rolls and curious expressions won me over instantaneously.
We spent a few minutes digging through the studio wardrobe picked out our favorite items for Amanda to wear. Her mama chose a the hand knit Caroline dress, a pink knit romper, and a lace sweater romper. And Amanda loved them all!
Amanda was almost six months old and just learning to roll and sit. Her mama’s favorite thing about Amanda is how her eyes smile. Her daddy knows how to make her giggle with silly songs.
Amanda’s mama Anne wants the whole world to see how much Amanda is loved. But also how much possibility is in her tiny body: she will sing and dance. Amanda a person with all of the potential and promise given to every person at birth.
Amanda reminded me so much of Lydia the first time I photographed her. It seemed serendipitous that we should finish this second round of Down Syndrome Awareness Mini’s with a baby who reminded me of the little girl who launched this project.
Since Amanda was in the studio helping me welcome our sweet clients and Lydia was with her we were able to sneak a little image of the two babies together. Lydia was delighted with the sweet “baybe!” There were sweet kisses shared and lots of “oohing” and “awwing” from the mamas. It was the perfect way to finish out this year’s Down syndrome awareness project.
Sweet baby Amanda, I can’t wait to see what amazing things you will do as you grow up!
