In my career as a photographer, I’ve met so many amazing people and I’m continually reminded of how lucky I am to be a photographer. Having the opportunity to meet and photograph Lizzie is easily one of the biggest highlights of my entire career.
If you haven’t heard of Lizzie, she has an extremely rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight. Only 3 people in the world have it! She has embraced her syndrome and has dedicated her life to helping others. Her story and her joy for life is so inspiring. She lives in Texas, but when we first started emailing I let her know that if she was ever in town, I’d love to photograph her. I was beyond excited when I got an email from her saying she’d be in town for some speaking events!!
When Lizzie walked into the studio with her family, she immediately lit up the room with her huge beautiful smile and joyful spirit. I am so honored to have been able to photograph her. She’s such a beautiful person. I encourage you to check out her website: www.aboutlizzie.com
