Photographer Kelly Lewis helps her adopted daughter Alice navigate her identity through stunning cosplay photos. The theatrical nine-year-old is an aspiring actress and model with an uncanny ability to transform herself into any character, from Wednesday Addams to Wonder Woman to Marie Antoinette.
After being adopted by Kelly at age seven, Alice officially changed her name to represent a new chapter in her life. Nowadays, she is happy to share her story as a way of encouraging the foster-to-adoption process for older children.
Kelly explains that photography is a bonding agent for her and her daughter, saying, "We didn't have a natural maternal link -- we created one the best way we knew how and it's stronger that I could have ever imagined."
