Brandy Day60: Colton’s Quest #KCCO

image

This is Colton Darst. He is a year and a half old. On September 20 2012 he was born. At birth he was diagnosed with Arthrogryposis, a disease characterized on the outside by severe contractures of the joints in the arms and legs.
I had the pleasure of photographing this happy baby this evening at a Chive event to raise money for him at the Stacked Pickle in Fishers IN.
I saw no disease. I saw a happy baby who loved the comfort of his parents, a bit overwhelmed by all the people, a child who loves french fries and gold fish crackers, I saw people coming together to help donate to a child whom 1/2 of us had never met before tonight. I saw happiness. I saw loyalty to humanity. Nights like I witnessed tonight are the reason I LOVE to shoot.
I’d like to thank Colton’s parents for sharing. Sharing so we are aware. Sharing a beautiful child. Sharing your family. Thank you to Stacked Pickle of Fishers for hosting a great event. Thank you Chive, for opening awareness to life. For creating a website that has brought so many people together, helped so many people & continue to give laughter.
If you don’t Chive, please check it out. KCCO!!
