THIS photograph of six children dressed as superheroes will make your day.


Utah commercial photographer Josh Rossi, who went viral earlier this year after transforming his three-year-old daughter into Wonder Woman, has turned six sick and disabled kids into superheroes.


Rossi, 32, said he photographed the children as members of the Justice League to “honour them for their positivity, determination and bravery”.


“I set out a few months ago to find the real Justice League and photograph them,” he explains. “The kids that my team and I chose have been through hell and back and have real superhuman strength.”


Rossi worked with his wife Roxana and costume designer Julie Whiteley to create the photoshoot.


“The idea was to showcase their inner strength in a way that would bring a smile to their faces as well as others struggling with similar issues.”


Roxana, who produced the shoot, spent weeks searching for the right children to take part.
