Family-Kids Photos - Autism Awareness

Recently I was called to assist on a pretty sweet project which helps to promote the awareness of autism through portraits and a short story. Pretty cool concept. Opened my eyes. A portrait photographer is paired with a local family and this happens all across the country.

I myself was matched up with a pretty awesome little dude from Joliet who was about the age of my oldest girl. Fun stuff. Gavin loves his games and You Tube... Evan Tube to be exact - and he didn't waste a second to tell me all about it either... or his new LEGO Jedi game :)  And not to mention he was the perfect little subject to photograph. Thanks Gavin! Stay awesome!
