these are the beautiful faces of down syndrome.

these are the faces that smiled so big it warmed me from the inside out. these faces are the reason that i am a photographer…to capture real human emotion. emotion that is so innocent and pure, i wanted to hug each and every one of them (and i did get some fabulous hugs).

i feel lucky and blessed to be involved with the down syndrome support group for a calendar project. i was only a part of these kids lives for a short while, but it was enough to melt my little heart.
