Family Portrait: Amy Whipple & WD

Scroll down to content

Several months ago I had the pleasure to photograph local writer (and extraordinary human being) Amy Whipple and her son. This session was expected to be challenging for a number of reasons, but when the time came we just strolled into the playground and had fun with it. The love that Amy has for her child, and for the world at large is so joyful and contagious. It was an honor to be able to capture these moments for her.

Amy has written extensively about her experience raising a child with disabilities. To read some of her work, please click on the links below (and make sure to have some tissues handy!)
