Willson’s sister, Dina, was born with Down Syndrome. While some people might have only seen her as a kid with a disability, Willson and her parents knew better and saw her for the unique person she was.
Many people with Down Syndrome have other health complications, and so the family made sure that she made the most of the time she did have.
When Dina passed away four years ago, Willson decided that she needed to help others see the beauty of children with Down Syndrome and started this photography project to show the world how special these children really are.
