One of my favorite subjects to photograph is also one of my most difficult-- my sister, Kaitlyn. She is 13 years old (I still can't believe she's a teenager) and was born with Down Syndrome, but was also diagnosed with Autism years later.
She is difficult to direct, rarely sits still, and is always on the move! But she truly is my favorite...everything. And the fact that she's a challenge to photograph actually motivates me. And when I do succeed, when I do capture something special, it's the greatest feeling.
Here are some of my favorite photos I've taken of her through the years...
This last one was on her 13th birthday. It's so fitting because she looks so mature!
Sister to the best little girl in the world,
