The Superhero Project was inspired by my own little super hero, Apollo. Apollo was born with a double aortic arch, a rare congenital heart defect. Apollo was diagnosed at 18 months old and has undergone two heart surgeries, had a g-tube placed and countless other medical procedures. After seeing how much he enjoyed the super hero images of himself, The Superhero Project was born. I now share my gift of photography with other families of children with special needs. You can see more photos at: Little Earthling Photography.The Superhero Project is designed to help special needs children and their families show the world just how amazing they are!

Victoria was born with Congenital Femoral Deficiency. This means the femur in one leg is shorter than the to her. She is a beautiful, shining girl who will undergo a series of operations to lengthen her leg as she grows. You can learn more about Victoria here


Avery was the first super hero I photographed and I learned so much from her. She was born a preemie and is a twin. Avery has gone through multiple brain surgeries and has a g-tube. 

Little Earthling Photography provides free Superhero sessions to children with special needs.
