Disabled Children Given Wings to Fly by Photoshop Artist:
Tahliyah is unable to walk, unable to speak, but despite this her smile lights up the room and her joy radiates past her physical needs. At 6 months doctors began to figure out that something wasn’t quite right physically with Tahliyah. But to this day her condition remains largely undiagnosed. Part of her diagnosis is Mitochondrial disease however this is only part of the story this little girl is still undergoing numerous tests to try and establish what exactly is going on in her young body.
I’ve always known that Story Art had the ability to bring dreams to life, but this project has moved beyond exciting the imagination to bringing real hope and joy. I’m so thankful to Tahliyah for giving me an opportunity to use my own gifts to provide her and and family with this gift of hope.
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”

Sienna (6) is a triplet. Her brother, Harry and her sister Grace were born without complications, however Sienna suffers from wheelchair bound Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Epilepsy.
“Our daughter is a triplet and about to turn 6 on the 26 March. She has Cerebral Palsy (wheelchair bound) autism, non verbal and suffers from epilepsy.
She sits back each day and watches her siblings fly and wishes she could one day…” – Sienna’s Parents
I prefer to believe anything is possible, and find a way to make it happen. We may often get overwhelmed with the feeling something is too difficult, but if we take up the challenge, amazing things can happen!
This three part series tell’s the story of Sienna, who sits by the window in her chair looking out on her brother and sister (Peter Pan and Tinkerbell) flying in the sky.
Tinkerbell (Grace) and Peter Pan (Harry) enter Wendy’s (Sienna’s) room and bring the magic that enables Sienna to fly. Here we see Peter Pan raise Wendy from her chair, Wendy’s dream becoming reality.
Now realising that she can truely fly, Wendy (Sienna) joins Peter Pan and Tinkerbell (her brother and sister) to fly through the sky, off to Never Never Land
Joshua was born with a Vein of Galen Malformation. He has a malformation in the blood vessels of his brain that steals blood from the rest of the brain.
He has had 6 strokes, left weakness, epilepsy, intellectual disabilities. He is the eldest surviving child with his condition in Australia. Joshua’s condition is now considered progressive as he began deteriorating in 2012.
When Mette, Joshua’s mum, shared his story and Joshua’s dreams to be a basketball star, I knew immediately that we could help Josh live out that dream in picture form.
Joshua’s dream to play NBA with his helper dog Jess was realised through photography and photoshop.
