Scott Endersby and Nicole: kids with autism, disabilities into superheroes.
A couple of photographers are helping kids with autism and other disabilities become superheroes in real life.
Nicole Endersby and Scott Endersby, owners of Endersby Photography in Keller, Texas, are using costumes and green screens to put kids into super situations as their favorite heroes, KXAS reported.
Heroes include Captain America, The Flash, and even Harry Potter and Hermione Granger.
They said that it started as a way to honor their sons, two of whom have autism. They started #EndersbysHeroes. Sibling are included in the free photo shoot.
“We believe it’s important to include the sibling. Our boys have a brother that follows this journey with them and should be included and feel just as special as their sibling that lives with their disability,” Scott Endersby told Cox Media Group’s National Content Desk.
#EndersbysHeros have also brought the community together as local businesses are helping buy costumes fit for a heroic photo, KXAS reported.
The hero photos are expanding too.
Later this month, the families that have had a photo taken as part of #EndersbysHeros are being invited to a sensory-friendly showing of “Toy Story 4.” The photos that have been taken of the children as their favorite hero will replace the movie posters at The Keller MovieHouse & Eatery for the special show, KXAS reported.
