{Autism Awareness | Meet Jonathan}

{ Madison WI Photographer }

I was really excited to do this photo session with Jonathan because I had met him briefly this winter and remembered his sweet smile under his New York Giants hat. I spent an afternoon with Jonathan and his parents. Their family really stuck with me. Sometimes you meet people and you feel just for having been around them. That’s how I felt with Jonathan and his parents. Something that really struck me about Jonathan and his parents, was that they were so relaxed. Now, maybe they don’t feel relaxed, but they seemed it. It was as is if you could just feel them emoting “this our son, we love him, we are so proud to have him”.

I really loved capturing the thoughtfulness, joy, sweetness and quirks that are a part of this extraordinary boy. Jonathan likes to play on his iPad, look at calenders, playing with cars and enjoys singing and dancing when the mood strikes him (I mean, who doesn’t really?).

Meet Jonathan.

This is one of my favorites from that day, I had just asked Jonathan what I should take pictures of and without skipping a beat said “ME!”
