Animal photographer Alex Cearns created this series of disabled pet portraits to highlight each creature's courageous attributes. The beautiful series sheds light on an issue that is often overlooked. While various pet portraits exist, there are few that focus so intently on the animals that posses handicaps.

These images show a variety of adorable pets that each contain their own disability. Some photographs feature one-eyed pooches, three-legged dogs and completely blind kittens. The images are powerful as they aim to support the strength within each disabled pet.

The adorable animal-focused series is rightfully titled 'Perfect Imperfection.' This project became a personal passion to the photographer who has openly expressed her undeniable love for creatures that "differ." Rather than downplaying each creature's weakness, this series focuses directly on these topics by making them the pet's best feature.
