FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS PASSIONATE ABOUT DISABILITY INCLUSION
BEFORE I TELL YOU ABOUT THIS WORLD-CHANGING PROGRAM, LET ME TELL YOU WHO IT IS FOR...
This program is designed for family photographers of all editing and posing styles who want to provide families with disabilities a stellar client experience & beautiful images.
You do not need to have any experience in the disabled community or a sappy back-story. All you need to bring is an open mind and your existing photography business!
Speaking of back stories...
I am a former pediatric home health nurse who turned my photography side hustle into my full-time job. Growing up with a paraplegic (wheelchair-user) father meant I have been fully immersed in disability for as long as I can remember! When I became a nurse, I saw that many of my patients' families struggled to find photographers that knew how to work with their disabled child. That is when my own photography business was born! Fast-forward seven years and I am now giving photographers around the world the tools & techniques they need to serve families of ALL abilities.
If you have ever...
felt uncomfortable talking about disabilities
struggled to gain kids' cooperation during your session
lost sleep over an inquiry who mentioned they have a child with special needs
left a session feeling defeated and wondering if you got even *just one* decent family photo
wanted your business to more do than make money, but to have true PURPOSE

Cassey Golden Photography
"ALL kids can be challenging in a lot of different ways throughout a photo session, and everything I learned in The CapABLE Course can be useful for how we approach any children who aren't perfectly cooperative (and isn't that the majority of them!?)This course was so helpful in making me feel prepared for anything out-of-the-ordinary that I'm not used to thinking through in my session workflow."
Spoken For Photography
"As a Mom of a special needs child and a photographer myself, this is HUGE and important in thinking and engaging with anyone who has a disability. I feel like I am educated and been given tools to assist my special needs clients so they feel safe, seen and valued."
Codi Rae Photography
"Stephanie is a phenomenal photographer and mentor. I reached out to her a couple months ago regarding mentorship and it was the best decision I could have made. She was patient with all of my questions and left me feeling confident going into my own sessions. If you are a photographer looking to fine tune your skills or wanting to master family photography I highly recommend investing in Stephanie’s course!"
