Photo Series of Kids With Down Syndrome
Photographer Julie Willson has wanted to do a portrait series of children with Down syndrome ever since her sister Dina passed away four years ago.
Dina had Down syndrome; she died from heart failure at the age of 35. Doctors didn’t expect her to live past the age of 7, and Willson wrote on her blog that the uncertainty about Dina’s life was a “literal roller coaster for my parents.”

On Oct. 11, Willson used her photography idea to honor her sister’s life.
