We here at Changing the Face of Beauty feel that it is so important for all people to see themselves in advertising and the media. We believe it is such a key part of true integration and acceptance. 1 in 4 people in our country have a disability. We feel that is too many people under represented in our media today.
Of course, I loved the idea. Then, I discovered that the founders are local. And, that we have mutual friends. And, that the photographer was doing a Reece's Rainbow photo shoot. So, I invited myself along and met Katie.
Some IL RR treasures.
Fast forward a few months, we are home and Sara wins a photo shoot to model some clothing for Katie's business. Below is a sneak peak of some of the photos. While Katie specializes in photography for people with special needs, she also does things like senior pictures, Mommy and Me photos, new born photos. Anything really. Everything she does is beautiful. Check out her galleries.
And what you've really been waiting for:
This is Katie's daughter Grace. They were instant friends. (And, I got to chill with Grace while Sara and Katie worked. Good deal for me!)
