Jamie Woodford – Above Knee Amputee
Everyone knows that high school is a time that starts the shaping of the beginning of ones adult life. Well on Oct. 15 1992 was the day that my life took shape that I was not prepared for at the age of 14. I had just got dressed from playing in my high school football game and wanted to get something to eat. My uncle & I made our way to a nearby fast-food spot. Just as we turned into the driveway we were rear ended by a pickup truck… Unfortunately just before the impact I unbuckled my seat belt, which allowed me to fly forward from the impact. Then me hitting the dashboard causing me to sustain a cervical injury… Just 2 weeks before my 15th birthday I never would have thought that would have been the last time I ran up & down a football field.
The game of life for me had just begun…. After having almost a year out of school to recover. I worked to graduate on time with my class. I then pushed myself into attending Cal State University Northridge. Where not all of college life was great, it did leave me with some fun memories.
Many people say that I have a great spirit or how is it that I keep a smile on my face. My response is I’m human just like you! Except I’m allergic to stairs (lmao)…. I am just blessed to have a wonderful support system of family & friends. Plus a lil prayer every now & then doesn’t hurt.
It seems as if it was just yesterday as I embark on another year of living with a SCI. I never knew that there were so many wonderful, talented ( like Andrew …lol), & determined individuals within the SCI community. I plan to help not only spread the word but show society that there are no limits to what we can do!

As every shoot, Bobbie and I are immensely proud and excited for new photo set releases. However, this shoot is near and dear to our hearts. This was a shoot design we had talked about doing since the beginning of our conversations of doing photos and makeup. It’s so warming to know that we have did it!
Bobbie and I have many more ideas that we cannot wait to showcase! But we need your support! Sponsor a DLM photo shoot and support our cause to creating unique image involving people with disabilities to show the whole world that we may be disabled, but we are THIS-Abled to matter!
An incredible amount of thanks goes to our production assistance crew. Seriously guys, Bobbie and I are so thankful for the time and efforts you put into this shoot to help us and our models make this successful!
Lastly, a thank you to my father, Robert Angulo for his support on this shoot.
