Andrea + Michael Family | Bakersfield Family Photographer

Jul 20, 2017 | Children, Family

I met Andrea online through the San Diego Special Needs Support group on Facebook. I was in need of a friend, and she reached out to me. I’m so glad she did. When we shared our stories with each other, we were able to be a encouragement and be a support for one another.
This mama is such a strong mama (even if she doesn’t feel like it). Her youngest is special needs and had a stroke in utero and he has Cerebral Palsi. But despite the challenges that come with being a special needs family, there is so much love in this family.  It was truly blessing and a pleasure to be able to be this family’s Family Photographer and have some fun at the Scripps Pier in La Jolla!

Having a special needs child comes with a lot of hardship and a lot of trips to the hospital and specialists. Andrea and her family have a GoFundMe account and if you would like to donate to help ease their burden.

Hey there, I´m Linsey

When you’re relaxed, having fun, or showing your true love how much you love them, your emotions are authentic and natural. Your photos should capture these natural moments in meaningful ways, without forced smiles and fake poses.
