Photographer Dad Makes His Son With Down Syndrome Fly In Adorable Photo Series

Young William Lawrence, aged 1, was born with Down syndrome, yet his father has gone to great lengths to try and give him a normal, happy life. This includes using his Photoshop skills to create adorable images of Wil taking to the skies and flying. His father Alan, a professional photographer, lies in Utah with Wil and has four (soon to be five) other kids. He wants the photos, which he takes by holding up Wil then editing his own image out; to hopefully help inspire Wil when he gets older. As Alan explains, “These photos of Wil flying have taken on a special meaning for me as I think about the unique challenges Wil is going to face growing up. I hope to teach him that even with his disabilities he can do anything he puts his mind to.” thatdadblog.com | Kickstarter | Facebook | Instagram (h/t: liftbump)
