Photoshoot Seeing Kids With Down's Syndrome Dress Up As Disney Characters Goes Viral

Photoshoot Seeing Kids With Down's Syndrome Dress Up As Disney Characters Goes Viral

An amazing photo series which sees children with Down's Syndrome dress up as their favourite Disney characters has gone viral.

Birmingham-based photographer Nicole Perkins, of Nicole Louise Photography, decided to do the photoshoot "celebrate the beauty of Down Syndrome."

The photoshoot sees children of all ages with the genetic disorder transform into their favourite characters from Disney movies.

We see two young girls and a boy recreate Frozen as Elsa, Anna and Kristoff; a baby and toddler adorably dress up as Woody and Buzz from Toy Story; two tots transform into Jasmine and Aladdin; and another pair become Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast.

Nicole's shoot, originally posted on Facebook, has already been shared over 38,000 times - and the response has been unbelievable.

Nicole, who works in a special needs school alongside her photography, told Good Morning America: "The Down syndrome community is one of the kindest most welcoming communities I have ever met."

"The response has been incredible, and it was so much fun creating the images," she added. "I have met some amazing families in the process and I'm so glad to see the joy the images of their children has brought to so many people."

"These are the most precious photos I've ever seen. Capturing children as themselves, instead of 'posing' them for photos," gushed another.

"Absolutely love all of these pics. Just stunning to show the world exactly who these kids are. Kids who love Disney as much as the next," offered another.

"I am obsessed! I don't see deficits I see incredible abilities! One of which is the unique ability too convey a message of love so powerfully that it radiates through simple photos! [sic]," penned one more.
