Welcome to Disabled Life Media!
We delve into the world of media by highlighting stories and articles we find in the main stream media pertaining to disabilities and we put our views on it, with a quirky twist.
We also do photoshoots! Our love for photography has no bounds. We aim to do monthly photoshoots with people of all types of disabilities to show the glamour each individual has despite their disability. Our models also share who they are as a person, their disability and their endeavors in life.
We are looking forward to expanding our site and our reach to showcase the world that people with disabilities are relevant, beautiful and talented!
-We all may be disabled, but we are all THIS-abled to matter!

In the summer of 2009, I crashed my motorcycle that left me with a T7 spinal cord injury. I continued on despite the changes to my life and began putting my experiences online through my YouTube channel: “Angl747″. I just wanted to make videos about the things I did and the places I go and those experiences to share with online community.
With the positive response I had received from my online videos, in the summer of 2011, I had a crazy concept of bringing to light the world of disabilities in the media and also creating unique looks in photography, makeup using disabled people. I quickly grouped with my friend Bobbie Eller, an aspiring makeup artist, and away we went.
We still have many many wild ideas that goes beyond just photo and our blog and we can’t wait to have the opportunity to unveil what we have planned to the world! Thank you all for your continued support!
Halloween has always been my favorite time of the year as a child. When I was about seven years old, I remember watching the Making Of Michael Jackson’s “THRILLER” music video and I vividly recall the immediate love for special effects makeup. Each halloween thereafter, I would experiment with my mother’s makeup and create spooky characters. The love continues to this day and I throughly enjoy making someone up, from a light and airy look to the dark and gory.
Having the opportunity to do what I love and contribute to the community by involving people with disabilities, is truly a remarkable feeling and I look forward to making up more faces for our shoots.
