Wright Shot Photography
I have a lot of experience working with children/adults with special needs and I would be happy to come out and capture some fun new photos of you and your loved ones together! My own child does not smile well command, so I have become adept at capturing him when he just doing his own thing, or by having him get active during shoots (eg: chasing bubbles, swimming etc).
I also have experience in shooting couples and weddings, family celebrations (large and small group events such as birthday parties etc).
If you need photos taken for any occasion, please contact me! I’m sure I can work within your budget to capture some fantastic photos!
