Photographer Mom Turns Her 9-Year-Old Adopted Daughter Into Iconic Characters

Meet Alice Lewis, an aspiring nine-year-old actress and model. She enjoys cosplaying and having her pictures taken by her photographer mother, Kelly Lewis.

Alice’s beautiful story started when, at the age of 7, she was adopted by the photographer’s family. At the time of her adoption, she decided that she wanted to change her name to Alice – after Lewis Carroll’s beloved character.

With her incredible personality and imagination, Alice has already shown a natural modelling talent in front of the camera.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Readers concerned about the choice of wording in this post’s title are invited to read this Tumblr post by Alice’s mother, Kelly.

Why do people always have to point out when a child is adopted? Regardless of whether she was adopted, she is the woman's DAUGHTER.

Agree. That's exactly what I thought. It has nothing to do with the story!

I think perhaps the point of mentioning that Alice is adopted is so that people will understand that she is re-inventing herself.
