Kayla Celebrates "The Spirit of Difference"

Kayla continues to bring so many blessings to my life. So much has happened since I blogged last time but it would take me days to recap everything so I will share just one of the highlights.

The most magnificent thing that happened to us over the last year was meeting one of the most inspiring, funny and caring people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. Rick Guidotti, Director of POSITIVE EXPOSURE. Rick completed his education in photography and filmmaking at New York’s School of Visual Arts and established a studio in Manhattan, specializing in portraiture and fashion for 15 years. During that period he also worked in Milan, Paris and London for clients such as Yves Saint Laurent, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Revlon, L’Oreal and Life Magazine. A few years ago he began taking photos of people living with albinism and this lead to the creation of his non-profit, Positive Exposure where he is committed to raising awareness and celebrating the lives of people living disabilities, known as "The Spirit of Difference."

Rick has been taking beautiful photos of people living with disabilities on a round the world tour to educate medical students, doctors and the general public. As you can see from the photo above, Kayla is traveling around the world in that exhibit and I feel so blessed that she can represent this community of families living with myotonic dystrophy.

If you have time, please visit the Positive Exposure website and learn more about Rick's incredibly important work.
