Revealing Their Inner Beauty; Tips on Photographing Special Kids:
She also researched and wrote a book entitled, Photographing Children with Special Needs (published by Amherst Media), which is illustrated with beautiful images taken by many of SKPA’s photographers, and serves as a guide for professional portrait photographers who want to photograph children with disabilities of all kinds. According to national census statistics, approximately 20% of the population has some sort of disability, so chances are that a certain percentage of a photographer’s clientele will be disabled. “One of SKPA’s objectives is to place one of these books in every professional portrait studio,” Dórame states.
She emphasizes that SKPA photographers are very caring people. “I’ve
found that photographers who are successful love their job partly because the
parents are so grateful.” Parents enjoy having their child portrayed in
a joyful moment. “It’s a good idea to photograph a child enjoying
an activity at his/her own level, even if it’s sifting beach sand through
their fingers.” One of these images shows a child holding a doorstop,
which is a “comfort” object, according to Dórame.
