UpSideDown Blog Series | Welcome!

I sure hope everyone has had a great New Year!! 

2016 was such a big year in my business! I had major growths along with major fails. But that is okay, it is all apart of owning a business and learning on the way! I have been working super hard on some exciting things and can’t wait to share them with you all!

Most of you know I LOVE and ADORE children/individuals with Down Syndrome!!! They have my heart. Children with DS are a God send and are angels, they just have a special kind of sweetness about them, they are kind and love a whole lot stronger! 

One of those exciting things being a blog series about Down Syndrome throughout 2017! Once a month I will feature a family, or sometimes two and share their journey! My goal is to educate others, bring awareness to Down syndrome, and encourage families who are going through the same struggles! It will be called UpSideDown Blog Series. I want to bring the Up side of Down syndrome to others!!! Not only is this a blog but I will also be connecting more with the Down Syndrome community in Hampton Roads, as well as scheduled shoots open to the Down Syndrome community, etc. 

Down Syndrome, scientifically known as Trisomy 21, occurs when an individual has a full pair or partial extra copy of chromosome 21. Down syndrome is associated with intellectual disability, a characteristic facial appearance, and weak muscle tone (hypotonia) in infancy. The affected individuals experience cognitive delays, but is usually mild to moderate. When born, about half of all affected have a heart defect, digestive abnormalities, etc. 

I have many families that have signed up to share their stories on the blog. Everyone of them are so inspiring and unique! 

I hope you follow along! Be sure to tell your friends!
