Why I Advocate
Ontario Special Needs Photographer

I’m happy my clients decided to search for a special needs photographer. 
I am more than willing to work with you to make the session as easy on your child as possible.
The other reason I created this business is to help outsiders see the wonderful gifts of joy special needs children bring to their families.

Hello, my name is Kara Halonen am the owner and photographer of YoUniquely DiFfErEnT Imagery "seeing all things special". I am from the Oshawa area (Ontario, Canada) and I am the mother of two young girls that live with autism. As a special needs mom, I know by experience how stressful, overwhelming, and difficult it can be as special needs parents to find a professional family and children photographer that understands the needs of our child(ren). I am doing this to capture the beauty and joy of our children that we sometimes miss in all the chaos that is our everyday lives. 


I understand that you need more time, (I give a longer time frame), choosing a limited number of images, (I give all final edited images), and the possibility of having to do a retake, (I will provide one free retake), all of this can become overly stressful, therefore as your special needs professional photographer we can work together with time, patience, compassion and understanding to achieve those family pictures you always dreamed of having at affordable rates.


I hope we can chat soon, because I am VERY eager to meet you! For more information, send me an email at:
