This is a photo series on Harsh, a sweet boy I have known for close to three years. His brother and my daughter went to the same skating club. So we used to meet almost four days a week. While the children skated, Harsh would mostly be with the moms. There were few parents in the class with whom he connected and I was one among them. Harsh would be the first one to come and say hello to me as soon as we would reach class. We had our own way of communicating with each other. This was the first time I was coming in close contact with a child with special needs. Harsh falls under the autism spectrum.

I have taken portraits of many kids and families but never has a family with a differently abled child called me for a shoot. Harsh being my inspiration, I wanted to give him and his family some beautiful memories....and to capture the love they all share.
