Wouldn’t Change a Thing Charity Shoot

Wouldn’t Change a Thing Charity Shoot

I was honoured to be asked by Kate to be her family photographer for a Wouldn’t Change a Thing charity shoot. After it’s successful book launch in Australia, Celebrate T21, wanted to create a charity book in the UK, to spread their positive message about Down Syndrome.

The Wouldn’t Change a Thing charity are:

“trying to achieve a world where negative outdated perceptions of Down syndrome are a thing of the past.

 “Our projects are designed to be uplifting, emotive and positive; offering insights into how enjoyable life for all those associated with the condition can be. Our intent is to leave those who view our work feeling challenged and changed making them more willing to accept those with Down syndrome and to consider them as valid members of society, as schoolmates, as work colleagues or as employees.”

Celebrate T21’s aim for the book is to:

“portray the true stories of positive, lived experience typical of the majority of real people with Down syndrome and their families.

You can buy the book on the Wouldn’t Change a Thing website.

James was star of the shoot but it was important to show James as part of his family unit and for him not to just be photographed alone. Kate and Mark wanted to show how James fits perfectly into their family. You can read their beautiful words below on their double page spread of the book.

The shoot took place just before sunset on a beautiful evening in South Wales. We spent some time together exploring the gardens. James was brilliant at encouraging his brother and sister to relax. It was wonderful to spend time with such a loving family!
