Everyone is beautiful, no matter whom they were born as. This is the central idea that British photographer Nicole Louise Perkins wants to share with the world with her amazing ‘Down With Disney’ campaign that celebrates children who have Down Syndrome.

During a series of fabulous photo shoots, Perkins took pictures of kids dressed as various characters from Disney movies: from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘The Lion King’ and more. In an interview with Bored Panda, Perkins explained what the inspiration for the project was, why it was important, and what it means.

“I created ‘Down With Disney’ because last year I began my awareness/celebration campaigns. I had done a Down Syndrome awareness campaign ‘Down Right Beautiful’ and it got a lot of interest.”

“It was full of information that would hopefully help new parents. As my following on social media grew with parents of children with Down Syndrome, I wanted to do something for them again this year which is where ‘Down With Disney’ came from. I absolutely love Disney and I know I am not alone, so I thought this would be perfect.”

The photographer wants to raise awareness about Down Syndrome, as well as show that beauty can be found everywhere.

According to Perkins, the ‘Down With Disney’ campaign wasn’t without its challenges. Some of them were financial. “The greatest challenge was knowing when to stop. I could have gone on forever with these photo shoots but the props and everything is just so expensive.”

“Well worth it though to see the joy my images have brought to everyone,” she said that she doesn’t regret the expenses one bit. She’s also pleasantly surprised by the reaction that people have had to her project. “The reaction has been amazing I never imagined I would go viral! It’s been a crazy few months but absolutely amazing at the same time.”

“I couldn’t be happier,” she said.
