If you are the mother of a child with special needs, a Delaware photographer has an offer that could make Mother’s Day more memorable for years to come.

Ana Yevonishon, of Expressions Photography in Yorklyn, DE, provides free portraits for families who have children with special needs through her Portraits with a Purpose program.

“Fine quality art photography should be something that families like these can have at no cost,” she says of the initiative, which she started in the fall.

Each family gets an in-person consultation to talk about the needs of their child and plan the photo session. The sitting can include the immediate family in five groupings, so mom and child can have their own portrait. Sessions can be done at the studio or at one of the accessible parks nearby. When the photos are ready, the family comes back to the studio to choose five 8-by-10 portraits.

Yevonishon created a waiting list for families that want to participate. When paying customers place an order, they can become a sponsor family. There is no additional cost to them, but for every sponsor family, Yevonishon schedules a sitting with a family from the waiting list.

“It has been an honor to give to these special families,” she says. “I want them to be celebrated, because they deserve it.”
