If you’re not in Utah, this post will be of absolutely no use to you, but I have to talk about Emilie.
A while back I won a Halloween photo shoot on the Oh Sweet Sadie blog. I *really* wanted Campbell and Bennett in the pics together on account of their theme-y costumes, but Campbell has a bit of a “history” with getting pictures taken.
We left a studio after an hour without a single shot taken one Christmas. And the photographer actually told me it was Campbell’s fault.
He doesn’t like people touching him or talking to him. Add the bright lights to the mix? It’s all over.
“Normal” family pictures are one of those things you take for granted until you have a kid that just can’t handle it.
I expressed my concerns to Emilie and she told me she had lots of experience with special needs kids and to bring him. She even scheduled us right before lunch, just in case. (And remember…I hadn’t even paid for this photo shoot.)
And guess what?
She’s magic. Not a single melt down. No rolling around on the ground. No trying to eat his shirt.
If you’re a local, give Emilie a call, ESPECIALLY if you have kids with special needs. I think I have a crush on her.
Would it be creepy if I signed up for her class at Oh Sweet Sadie Academy?
