Part of a stunning series starring newborn twin sisters with Down syndrome, the photos are Laura's way of showing the world how "how truly wonderful children with Down syndrome are," she told The Stir.  

"I want them to be seen and loved and cared for the same as any other child," said Laura, who was incredibly moved when she met Blakely and Brynnlee's mother, Nicole (also a mom to two older children). "Nicole is so full of love and patience and an incredible mother as she balances it all," Laura shared.

"I want this project to be a way to shine light into the good in the world and affirm, recognize, and bless those who are doing the hard, dirty work sometimes in the trenches," she continued. "I want their voices too to be heard and for them to know that they are loved and their sacrifice matters." 

And that their babies are breathtakingly lovely, we might add!
