HOME Magazine: Jaide Childs’ Story

April 17th, 2011

Back in February I had the honor of meeting Jaide and shooting some images of her for a story HOME Magazine was doing on her.  Jaide was born with arthrogryposis, which resulted in limited arm movement in her case, as well as affecting her spine and limiting the flexibility in her legs.  However, in spite of all […]

 

Back in February I had the honor of meeting Jaide and shooting some images of her for a story HOME Magazine was doing on her.  Jaide was born with arthrogryposis, which resulted in limited arm movement in her case, as well as affecting her spine and limiting the flexibility in her legs.  However, in spite of all this she is a record-breaking Paralympic swimmer.  She was just named to the USA Paralympic Pan American team, and is currently training for the Pan-Am Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico in November!

Oh… and she’s thirteen.

Are you graduating from college?

Well, congratulations!

Before you leave your fun college town and start your new life somewhere else, why not have a Graduation Session?  It can be a session with just you alone, or we can have it with a group of your closest friends – to commemorate your friendship and the close bond you generated through late-night study sessions and commiserating about classes together.  ;)  You don’t want to leave this phase of your life without documenting this monumental achievement.  Let’s go take some pictures!

HOME Magazine

I know it’s been quiet on the blog here lately.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy.  In fact, I’ve been busier lately than I’ve been in a long time.  Recently I started shooting for HOME Magazine, a local publication in the Gainesville area.  They are very active in the community and are also focused on sponsoring and advocating for deserving charitable organizations in the area.  HOME’s mission statement sums them up pretty well:

Our mission is to be the leading lifestyle publication in North Central Florida, while giving back to those who consider the heart of Florida HOME. By providing relevant information to enhance our community’s well being, we value the opportunity to entertain, educate and inspire you– our neighbors.

The magazine is free and widely distributed in and around Gainesville.  If you see a stack, pick one up.  You’ll see some of my images inside.   ;)
