Photographer Angela Forker creates amazingly beautiful images of babies with special needs because she believes that every baby is precious. She builds breath-taking backdrops for her photoshoots with these little ones.
Angela quotes on her site “It is my desire to spread hope and raise awareness for babies with special needs as I take stunning and/or fun photos of babies with various medical needs. I want to show the world that every baby is precious!”
The images she that come as a product of her photoshoots scream that anything is possible, which is the whole point of what she wants to convey. These babies with special needs become astronauts, mermaids, superheroes, anything they want to be!
In honor of Rare Disease Day…This precious baby girl is my first model for The Precious Baby Project. My goal is to…
“It all worked together so perfectly, because my theme for these scenes is, ‘anything is possible!'”, she told PopSugar. Further, she said to PopSugar that “I came to realize that my ‘Baby ImaginArt’ scenes would be perfect for babies with serious medical conditions that prevented them from being able to sit up for a portrait. Many photographers are at a complete loss in these situations!”
This beautiful creation is Forker’s Precious Baby Project, which includes envisioning the idea for the theme with the parents, 20 long hours of prep work for the backdrop and other details, and then the photoshoot. And all of this is free of charge for the little babies and their families. Any baby with a serious medical condition is welcome to participate, agreeing to certain terms. The parents would have to be from New Haven, Indiana, or travel there because that’s where Forker has based her project.
Angela Forker works to make these little ones and their parents feel special and loved. With extra thought and hard work, she is determined to break the stereotypes that surround children with special needs. And it sure is working! Hats off to you, Angela!
