A Girl Suffering From Paralysis See’s Her Dream Come True

A Girl Suffering From Paralysis See’s Her Dream Come True

Mackenzie Clare was only 10 years-old when a reckless driver slammed into her family’s car, injuring her spinal cord and leaving  her paralysed. She had wanted to grow up to be a model, but had to put that dream on hold because of her wheelchair.

Recently, she was on a date with her boyfriend in Leesburg, Virginia, when she caught someone’s eye. Photographer Kerri Lane spotted Mackenzie from across the room and thought she’d be perfect for a photo shoot.

Kerri was initially shocked to learn of Mackenzie’s disability, but saw the potential for an even more powerful shoot.

The photographer’s son Shawn spent hours designing Mackenzie’s mermaid tail. It included floating boards inside that would help hold her up.

The shoot proved emotional for Mackenzie, especially as she had long thought her modelling dream was over.
