Week 36 | Inspired.

Two years ago, inspiration came to me.  I don't know why it chose me, but I hope I am doing it justice.  You see, I am in Ireland right now.  I am in Ireland because of the inspiration that came to me two years ago.....the inspiration that gave me the courage to take an idea and put it into action.  An idea that is now a photography-based, volunteer-run global initiative to raise awareness for and destigmatize Autism Spectrum Disorders.  An idea that every child's beautiful life deserves documentation and celebration.  An idea that allows me to work with and be inspired by my co-founders and soul sisters every single day.  And this week, I'm lucky enough to be in this incredible country, speaking about our mission, meeting with incredible artists and advocates and photographing incredible autism families.

Now, enjoy the beautiful images these artists were INSPIRED to create.  I know you will be as moved as I am.   I'm also so proud to say, I met and have become friends with several of these featured artists through Spectrum Inspired.  So, if inspiration comes to you.....listen.
