    Default Hardest session ever

    The mom warned me that her son was difficult, but apparently, it's more extreme than that. I don't know if he has a "diagnosis", but he's in lots and lots of therapy, including ABA therapy which is for kids on the autistic spectrum. The first half hour I thought the kid was simply a real brat, but then she started telling me about his therapists and it made more sense. Refused to let his parents brush his hair, barely made eye contact, obsessed on the same James train the entire time, etc. I really hope she's happy with some of these, because this was the first kid that I don't feel like I connected with at any time. The bubble machine was literally what saved the day.

    Esti- Those photos are amazing, particularly if he's on the autism spectrum. What a beautiful set of pictures for mom! You are so very talented.

    Wow, as always, those photos are amazing! It is so great that you managed to get so many with eye contact if he is anything close to autistic!

    I think mom will be thrilled with these! The fact that you were able to get him to look at the camera at all is amazing, you must have had a lot of patience which is what these kids need.

    They're wonderful, Esti! As you know, I'm loving the textured pics you've been creating lately. These are all great!

    Thanx everyone. Mom is very happy with her preview on my blog and I think a bit relieved based on her FB posts. Her friends are loving them, too, so I'm guessing they know the deal with her son.

    And Amy - I've been doing a lot of textured stuff for a long time, but these parents are a bit edgier (hence the wifebeater...) so I pushed it a bit more. Most of my clientele can only be pushed so far. That's why I play more on my own kids' pics than on clients. I need people to get used to something less conventional.
