I recently volunteered my time and photography to capture Camp TJ 2011. I was there 8am-3pm June 27-July 3rd. There is alot one can learn from 'special needs' children. They can teach you patience, humility and how to smile despite all odds. Sometimes being different is perfectly normal.
About This Gallery:
Due to privacy of the children attending Camp TJ, all photos containing the children or their names are in the password protected galleries for my client. Only the images with no names or children have been included in this public gallery. If you are a parent of a child attending Camp TJ, contact me and I will arrange for photos pending verification of your guardianship via Stephanie Smith. You will not be allowed to purchase photos of 'your child' without consent of their guardian. If you are a parent or volunteer willing to sign a model release allowing me to publish your child's photo in my portfolio, contact me. If you were a volunteer, I have portraits of many of you. Contact me with your verification of hours letter for proof of identity. All images are available as prints or custom photographic products such as canvas, metal prints, dog tags and more. A portion of proceeds will benefit Camp TJ 2012. Contact Stephanie to purchase a DVD of Camp TJ 2011!
