Internet Is Laughing At These Family Pics After Mom Lets Autistic Son Wear T-Rex Suit As He Hates Being Photographed

Most parents struggle with getting their young kids to sit for family portraits, but for mom and photographer Samantha Bishop she faces an extra set of challenges. Bishop’s son Levi has autism which is defined as “A broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication.”

The photographer explained that because of being autistic Levi gets uncomfortable with eye contact and having to smile on command. “I don’t know what to do with my face,” he told her. Well, the creative mother found a solution, she bought him a T-Rex costume and let him wear it for family pictures, and the photos are to die for.

Scroll down below to see the brilliant photos of Levi the T-Rex and his sister Lola, that look like straight from a Jurrasic Park movie set!

This is the cutest. Such a nice way to make her son feel included without making him feel uncomfortable.
