Sunschein Photography. Special Needs Portraiture. Photographing People of All Abilities.

The Latest

Welcome to Sunschein Photography.

I know how difficult it can be to get a great photo of someone who has trouble following instructions or making eye contact, works hard at sitting or standing independently, or has multiple medical devices that might be a distraction.

I also know what it’s like to have few, if any, great photos of your special person that really capture their personality and their spark.

I hope you enjoy my blog filled with beautiful images of people of all abilities, fun stories, cool recommendations, and anything else that I think will give you a smile.
