After Laura Kilgus' nephew, Tommy, was born with Down Syndrome five years ago, the Rhode Island-based photographer reached out to the Down Syndrome Society of RI (DSSRI) to offer complimentary mini-shoots to families of their organization.
The result is an amazing photo series of children with Down Syndrome having fun.
"I hoped this photo gallery would be special for the children and all of the families of the DSSRI," Kilgus said to A Plus."Seeing everyone react to their photos was priceless. Their happiness was so contagious, a beautiful moment to witness."
Here are 11 photos of children with Down Syndrome being happy:
