The Superhero Project was inspired by my own little super hero, Apollo. Apollo was born with a double aortic arch, a rare congenital heart defect. Apollo was diagnosed at 18 months old and has undergone two heart surgeries, had a g-tube placed and countless other medical procedures. After seeing how much he enjoyed the super hero images of himself, The Superhero Project was born. I now share my gift of photography with other families of children with special needs.

Victoria was born with Congenital Femoral Deficiency. This means the femur in one leg is shorter than the to her. She is a beautiful, shining girl who will undergo a series of operations to lengthen her leg as she grows. You can learn more about Victoria here.
Avery was the first super hero I photographed and I learned so much from her. She was born a preemie and is a twin. Avery has gone through multiple brain surgeries and has a g-tube.
Cody is a gorgeous red-head who just happened to be born with an extra chromosome. He is the delight of his mother’s life and lights up any room he walks into.
Melanie is a bright and energetic 4 year old, who wakes up every day smiling. Melanie has a diagnosis of autism, as well as epilepsy and sensory processing disorder. Even though these conditions make things a lot harder, Melanie has shown nothing but happiness and perseverance.
