My first video… working with Special Needs Children January 24, 2011

Hello friends,

Many of you know my love for photographing children with special needs and disabilities. I recently did a short video regarding photographing children with special needs.

Here is the YouTube link:

Feel free to share this video with other special families!

New video . . . . take one! December 10, 2010

Today was a very exciting day for me!  I recorded my first video. A big thank you to Elizabeth Tackett and Lauren Archer for their expertise of the set up and filming.  We shot the video using green screen so I still have options of what I want the background to be.

The theme of the video is to explain a little about how I photograph children with special needs and disabilities. I have been photographing special children for many years and I love working with them and their families. I cannot wait to share the video with you!

I will be sure to post my video as soon as it is done.

Thanks and I’ll post it soon… Kerri Kirshner,

I LOVE getting emails like this…. read on….. August 26, 2009

This is a note I just got from Keirsten’s grandmother:


Heather and Kiersten are the 2 most beautiful women the world to me but you have captured that inner & outer beauty they have like I never would have thought possible. For that I say thank you. I would like to talk to you about the possibility of purchasing a few prints.  As a mother n law and grandmother to these very special young ladies I was brought to tears by your pictures and hate the thought of losing even one of them.

Ahhhhhhh…. Keep em’ coming. Love to hear how photos touch you!

5 Week Old Kiersten…… too cute for words!

Even though this little girl was only 5 weeks old at her first  photo session…. she was FULL of energy. She was squirming around like she wanted to run! She loves to move around and stick her tongue out at the camera 🙂

Kiersten’s mom, Heather, and I waited her out though!  After about two hours of off and on feeding, little Kiersten went to sleep. I think you’ll agree she’s just as sweet asleep as awake.

Enjoy! Kerri Kirshner, Photographic Artist
