Kids With Down Syndrome Posing As Their Favorite Disney Characters
Some kids with Down syndrome got dressed as their favorite Disney characters and their photos are extremely popular all over the internet.
Nicole Louise Perkins is an assistant at a special needs secondary school but she loves to take photos as a hobby.
Chloe Lennon is six years old and she loves Merida from the movie “Brave”.
Nicole Louise Perkins loves to work with kids with special needs, and she has created many campaigns for awareness in which she features kids with Down syndrome, one of those campaigns is called “Down Right Beautiful”.

In her campaign, every kid that was participating had a page of their own with their story and some advice that the parents have for other parents that have kids that have recently been diagnosed with Down syndrome.

Nicole Louise has made thirty-two photo-shoots each featuring a child with Down syndrome and they look fabulous according to her.
The response was so great with all of them she decided to do this one Disney themed. She felt that there was something magical about Disney and it would fit perfectly.

She hopes that his project will help raise awareness for Down syndrome and it will show people that it is not scary and that people with Down syndrome live the same lives as everyone, on top of that she thinks that they make the lives of those around them much happier.
