Dallas On The Move | Woodbury Family Photographer

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is meeting new people. Everyone has a story and photography has given me a way to meet people and help them tell that story.

Today's story is of Dallas; an amazing kid with equally amazing and strong parents. Dallas was born with CHARGE syndrome; a syndrome caused by a genetic disorder. It presents itself in the form of unusual congenital features and has resulted in many surgeries, hospital stays and countless hours of therapies for Dallas and his family.

I share this aspect of the story simply to help bring awareness to the disorder. It doesn't define Dallas, and from what I witnessed, he and his parents are not letting it hold him back.

Yesterday we went for a walk, and like any other kid Dallas loved being outdoors and moving around. As you can hopefully tell from the images below, walking is one of his favorite things to do. From a photographers standpoint, capturing such a bundle of energy in focus can be challenging, but also very rewarding.
