for the past couple of years i have had the absolute honor of photographing kids with hydrocephalus.  the first session i had with them was for the hydros for hydro campaign for seafair 2006.  i was happy to be asked to do it but had no idea how it was going to affect me.  i absolutely fell in love with the kids that day.  driving home my heart was overflowing with joy, just oozing everywhere, i couldn’t contain it.  it still does whenever i think about it or see the pics.  i see, feel and relive the session and all of their magical personalities.  i’m no longer happy to photograph them, i’m honored.  i love following their stories, seeing them grow, etc.  so here’s another session and some new kids to melt my heart.  and once again, they did.
