brendan & brody | whitehorse children's photographer

Meet Brendan & Brody. These two fellas came by the studio on the weekend with their black Lab, Roscoe. They were quick to warm up to me and immediately got down to the business of being boys! They brought their energy and excitement with them which I think makes these images pretty honest and genuine!

Brendan is 5 years old and has Autism. But that is definitly not his defining characteristic. He LOVES Dora the Explorer and shares a very special bond with his service dog, Roscoe. Roscoe is still a puppy but is definitely a great match for Brendan's energy.

Here's a bit about this family in Mom's own words:
Brendan is a extremely sweet and courageous boy who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3. He has a younger brother named Brody, a new Black Lab named Roscoe, and two parents (Chris and Sue) that are very proud of him. The boys are extremely active and keep us on our toes 24/7. While Brendan has trouble with a lot of things, he faces each challenge head on and still loves nothing more than laughing, playing, and being with family.

So between sibling rivalry, toddlers & puppies, this family definitely has their hands full but these two boys are sweet as can be. Clearly a product of their environment.

If you know of a family whose child is living with a life-altering illness or disability, please put them in touch with Helping Hearts where they can apply for their own complimentary portrait session. This service is available across the country.
