This is Alette and her family whom I had the honor of recently photographing. Her family is so sweet and photogenic, and she was delightful to photograph. I especially enjoyed capturing her amazing smile and the tenderness between she and her daughter.
Alette is a wife, mother, professor, and now a contestant in the Ms. Wheelchair California 2015 pageant for which she needed a portrait. The Ms. Wheelchair California Pageant is a competition designed to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for the millions of Americans with disabilities. The selected representative must be able to communicate both the needs and the accomplishments of her constituency to the general public, the business community and the legislature. I wish her all the best in this pageant! How fun to see my image of Alette’s family on Huffington Post on April 3, 2015. BTW, she won!!!!!
