    Using my vision for Help Portrait comes easy for me

    My name is Tara Miller. Tomorrow I will be involved in my fist help portrait and can hardly wait to hear the thank you in peoples voices.
    I won't be able to see them as I take a photo of a mother and her child, or grandma with 3 generations smiling as proud as can be. but I can capture the moment in time for a family keepsake. I know in my heart what I am doing tomorrow will be a wonderful experience where 15 years from now, mom can look at a photo of her children all grown up and think back to this day.
    What makes it more special is that we as professional photographers can share our talent and work together on this project to give back to the community.
    I am a professional commercial photographer who is legally blind. I use my skills and knowledge to capture the image successfully by not being scared to tell the client I can't see and them helping by me posing them at a close up range, I am proud of the portraits I create. Wether it's for a paying , or non paying client, that never matters to me. Everyone gets my attention and concentration to put people in their "Happy" place. Everyone needs to feel special and all little girls need to pretend to be a princess in the world today.
    Full eyesight does not always guarantee a great shot, I use my vision to create an image.
