Madeline Stuart poses at Rixey Manor, a wedding venue in Virginia. Stuart has Down syndrome.
The venue's owner approached Stuart to do the photo shoot after hearing about her appearances on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week.
Stuart is from Brisbane, Australia. "Maddy really wants to change the way people discriminate against disability through gaining attention through social media," her website says.
After Stuart expressed interest in being a model, her mom set up a professional photo shoot.
The photos from the original shoot went viral and now Stuart is working as a model.
Stuart, in a beautifully embellished gown, dances with a male model.
"Madeline was a natural in front of the camera and really made the whole shoot so much fun," said photographer Sarah Houston.
