After finding out Henrik has Down syndrome I wanted to learn everything I could about his diagnosis.
I researched and became involved with FRIENDS.
I am now the Vice President and organize the events alongside Misty Adams.
Not only are we besties but so are our kids. : )
I quickly became the FRIENDS photographer.
We wanted to capture the fun and excitement at our events to help get the community more involved.
Since then I have photographed many events for nonprofits including National Down Syndrome Society in New York and Fostering Hope.
