Kids Fighting Diseases and Disabilities Are Turned Into Superheroes for an Amazing Photoshoot

Most kids wish they had super powers and could become their favorite superhero. Last year photographer Josh Rossi first went viral for creating an elaborate photoshoot for his three year old daughter Nelle where she was transformed into Wonder Woman. After the response to the photos, Rossi knew he wanted to help other kids find their inner strength and show their real powers. So for his latest pictures, Rossi has transformed six kids, who are all living with disabilities, into phenomenal super heroes and the pictures are fantastic. “The idea was to showcase their inner strength in a way that would bring a smile to their faces as well as others struggling with similar issues,” Rossi wrote in on his blog explaining the project. So who are these superheroes? Let’s meet them.
