Firefly Nights Photography is known nationally as the premier special needs photographer. One of my passions is working with children who have special needs, especially children on the spectrum. With my own son who has Asperger’s Syndrome, it is a personal interest of mine. I understand the special needs involved with working with children who have sensory issues, physical limitations, and behavioral challenges and love providing pictures for such families. If your child would best benefit by me coming to your home, that is also available.
I am more than willing to work with you to make the session as easy on your child as possible.
My current experience extends to working with children with all forms of autism, Down’s Syndrome, cystic fibrosis, cerebal palsy, Trisomy, as well as several other genetic and chromosomal disorders. I welcome any and all discussions on your child’s disorder and needs to ensure I am the best fit for your family.
Firefly Nights Photography was named a 2011 Director’s Choice by Stories of Autism, 2011 and 2012 Best Photographer by Naperville Magazine, 2012 International Award Winner by NAPCP, been featured on Chicago’s ABC News, autismpodcast.org, and Rock the Shot. My special needs work is also seen in Learning Express Toys national advertisements for their sensory line of toys. I am also the official photographer for Autism Society of Illinois. My special needs work can be seen in doctor’s offices, international magazines, calendars, national advertisements, and countless homes.
