Taya Kennedy isn’t your average baby model. The 14-month-old has a beautiful smile and a twinkle in her eye, which is why it‘s no surprise that she’s been a major success in the kid-modeling world. But it is the fact that she has Down Syndrome that separates her from other young models her age.

“Taya is an incredibly photogenic, warm and smiley child, and that shines through in her photographs,” explains Alysia Lewis, the owner of Urban Angels, the UK modeling agency that signed the child.
