We first met Hudson through our photographer, Lise Varrette. She suggested he would make a terrific cover model and we agreed, thinking it would be nice to feature a child with Down Syndrome on our November issue. Little did we know that November 1-7 is also Down Syndrome Awareness Week, so the stars really aligned themselves.
As you can see from the selection of photos, we had a hard time choosing the final cover image, so we enlisted our entire creative team for help, and tallied the votes. “Hudson was just a little ham and rocked the photo shoot,” says mom Sarah. “We are so proud of him!”
