KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -  A unique event benefiting Autism Speaks was held at the Picsee Studio in Kingsport Saturday. The event included a photo shoot where children could bring their favorite stuffed animal and raise awareness about autism. The photo shoot was open to all children not just those with disabilities.

Event Organizer Debbie Imsande said the event is special because it allows people to see the child, not the disorder.

"Every now and then it's nice to just capture this moment that you don't see autism or you don't see the disability. And photography does that,” said Imsande.

Imsande was inspired to start the event by her son Luke who has autism. The stuffed animal or side-kick idea came from Luke's love of his bear named Blue. Each photo shoot was 20 minutes long and resulted in a collection of 10 images.
