Continuing our updates from our "First Annual Scott Ringel Anniversary Remembrance & Giveaway" we have a very special family who came all the way from NYC to visit the studio. Their daughter Adrianna had come to model for me in the past and I didn't know much about her family but when we announced our contest, her mom got in touch with me. Here's the email she sent me:
"My name is Cindy - I saw your post on facebook. My daughter Adrianna did a photoshoot with you, but in this case I will tell you that I would like to get a opportunity to win the giveaway for 2 of my kids. One has autism and other with learning disabilities and speech delay. I hope you can read this, I also want to say you doing such a good job also you are amazing photographer." I'd like to also add that mom is legally blind and dad speaks only Spanish - I find them to be so inspiring because they keep putting their children first despite their own challenges. I had to bring them in for a session.
Photographing their family was such a treat. The children are all beautiful super models and I know they have a bright future ahead. Be sure to follow their accounts on Instagram if you'd like to keep up with them.

Next up on the blog, our final installment from the Scott Ringel Anniversary Giveaway project. You'll need tissues, just a warning.
