Photographer Creates a Fantasy World for Her One-Handed Daughter to Show Her Anything is Possible

Photographer and mother Holly Spring‘s photography has always been about her daughter. Born with only one hand and suffering from something known as Hirschprung’s disease, little Violet almost died from surgical complications before Holly ever got a chance to take a single picture of her.

Shortly after that, her husband bought her a DSLR, and she has been taking pictures of Violet ever since.

Her photographs and digital creations feature wondrous scenes that show Violet in any number of fantastical scenarios. Whether she’s playing with a giraffe, holding a smaller version of herself or dancing with butterflies, these composite photographs are meant to show Violet that anything is possible:

“My daughter is my muse and my heart,” Spring recently told Bored Panda. “[She] inspires me to follow my passion and share these unique photos and digital art with you.”
