Father takes beautiful photos of his son with Down syndrome “flying”

Father takes beautiful photos of his son with Down syndrome “flying”

A creative father of Utah has created stunning photos of his son with Down syndrome “flying.”

The dad, Alan Lawrence, hopes that the photos will help to show Down syndrome in a positive light, as he himself had trouble adjusting to fatherhood of a son with different needs.

"When Will was born, I didn't take the news as well as my wife did, and my family," Lawrence told TODAY.com. "I was dwelling on things that were out of my control. I was being selfish."

“This project is a way for us to show how much our son has blessed our family," Lawrence said. "He's not a burden, he hasn't limited us. He's opened the door to so many new things, to new experiences."
