Have you heard of Changing the Face of Beauty
Their goal is inclusive advertising, or encouraging companies to use models who reflect the real world, including people with disabilities.
The Crazy Kukla Boutique is one of the participating companies, committed to using differently-abled models.
It was my pleasure to provide a photo shoot for The Crazy Kukla
. Our three models, all with disabilities were hot and tired but they were troopers.
Full disclosure: One of the models is my four year old. Ellie has Down syndrome and was also born with a heart defect, and is wearing a beautiful dress that shows off her zipper! She was also the model who followed directions the least.
The other two models are two of Ellie's best friends. Their parents started their family by adopting Charlotte and Louisa, both of whom have Down syndrome. I've had the joy of photographing their first two adoptions and I cannot wait to photograph their next homecoming. You can read more of their story here.
