About a month ago, I was lucky enough to be involved with an event called “Changing the Face of Beauty”. Their goal is to empower those living with disabilities by advocating for inclusive imagery in the media. My goal was to capture images of these wonderful children by showing off their personalities and how special they are, with the hopes of a company using these kids for marketing and media purposes.
These were some of the happiest children and families I have ever photographed. The day was filled with Justin Timberlake dance parties, princesses, break dancers, and jokes. Each child was so smiley and joyful, I couldn’t help but smile and laugh along with them. I so support the mission of including these children in mainstream media, and I hope I helped, if only a little.
