I had the absolute honor to be a part of something incredibly special. Rocky from Sara&Rocky sent several of us Dallas Wedding Photographers an email invitation to join him in documenting the Special Olympics. Many of you don’t know why I hold a soft spot in my heart for this. My sister was born with Down Syndrome and has defied many odds and is still as sassy as ever at almost 20 years older than me.
The day was filled with so many victories. Every participant was a winner. Each athlete who crossed the finish line celebrated with high-fives, smiles and huge hugs while I discreetly shed tears of utter joy behind my camera. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience and thank you Rocky for including me in such a great event.
The athletes oath was spot on….life should be lived like this:
Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt
