Discover 4 Benefits of Hiring Kristie Allbritten to be your Johnstown Family Photographer for your Special Needs Family:
Families come in all shapes and sizes and no one can appreciate this better than a family that has some extraordinary characteristics.
Hiring a Johnstown family photographer who is also a Mother to a child with Autism gives you peace of mind in knowing compassion and acceptance are in full abundance.
I truly believe people are becoming more understanding of differences and disabilities every day, though we still seem to have a ways to go until every individual is accepted as the way they were born.
We will plan and prepare together before your session.
I take some time to research your child or children’s diagnosis and will send you a social story to share with your child about your families photography session.
Reading the social story before we meet gives the whole family a vision of what to expect and helps avoid the anxiety of the unknown.
I will front load before each transition to make sure that everyone knows what is expected of them and give clear directions. I explain how long each activity will last and can provide a visual schedule using the first/then approach.
I will bring weighed blankets, glitter bottles and other items that help calm unexpected behaviors.
Sensory tools are created for each individualized season if needed.
I add noise-canceling headphones to my bag of tools if loud noises could be an issue.
We can set a timer that will allow your child or children to check in to see how much longer the family photography session is.
Sometimes, bringing a favorite object along for the transition is comforting for a child and recommended.
Self-regulation can be a challenge, and knowing when a child needs to stop and take a break is also a huge benefit in hiring a special needs photographer.
Your Special Needs Photographer will make additional considerations and accommodations to serve families that need extra support during a family photography session.
The location has been scouted out beforehand and the environment will be chosen that will best fit the needs of each family. Should the park be wheelchair assessable?
Is your child easily distracted so a location that is not busy be best for a peaceful experience?
Kindness is my first priority and I guarantee to help you get the best out of our time together.
It is my goal to deliver images with authentic and real smiles and sometimes more candid real to life images. There is no pressure to get the perfect shot because honestly, that is just too ordinary.
Leaving the session with happy kids who have played games and been snuggled and adored creates good memories of getting their pictures taken.
