As some of you may be aware, my older son KJ has autism. So when the Autism Center of Pittsburgh needed a photographer for their "Breakfast with Santa" event at the Hyatt Regency Airport, it was a no-brainer for me to get involved. This was a holiday event geared specifically for kids with autism, and it was great. The Hyatt staff really went all-out, including an incredible 8x16 foot gingerbread diorama of the hotel and airport (shown at left). The kids had a blast. Besides meeting with Santa, Miss Pennsylvania USA was also there. Kids had a chance to decorate their own gingerbread men. There were also some amazing autism-themed cakes from local decorators. A great time and a worthy cause.
