R.e.a.l Life - Sunshine Coast Photography



It isn't often I get photographs of Cameron. He hates the camera. He has Asperger's Syndrome......is it obvious looking at him? No, it isn't. You have to live with him, speak to him, 'know' him. He is truly an incredible child. His life is governed by his own routines {although the one where he used to wake up at 6.30am and be at school by 7.45am, has faultered lately}. He is mature, sensible and responsible. He takes everything literally and is incredibly intelligent. His favourite colour is red, as red means safety. He understands more rules and regulations about bizarre things, than I ever could. There is no grey area with him; you are either right, or wrong.

Friends and family often refer to him as Sheldon, off the Big Bang Theory.......as his behaviour, the way he speaks share an uncanny resemblance. He loves everything geeky, techy and retro. Another one born in the wrong era. He is definitely a 80's kid through and through!

It is part of our real life, and although we have had some really tough times {first days at school were an eye opener for everyone concerned - we went through 2 schools before we found Eumundi}, we wouldn't have it any other way. He is truly remarkable :)

He has that John Lennon 'philosophical though' look. Very handsome young man.

Wonderful processing, and a very sweet, loving, testimony to what sounds like a very fine son! Thanks for sharing! I really appreciate when people share their real-life perspectives on the world and their relationships.
