11-month-old boy with Down syndrome gets signed with mom's modeling agency

Micah Quinones is no stranger to the camera. He takes after his mom in that way.

You may recognize Amanda Booth, who has been modeling for 10 years, from her appearances in campaigns for Target, Old Navy, True Religion and Corona. Now, her 11-month-old son Micah will be in the spotlight after signing a contract with the same modeling agency as his mom.

Micah was diagnosed with Down syndrome at 3 months old.

"My immediate reaction was fear," Booth told BuzzFeed. "I hadn't known anyone who had Down syndrome, so I only had those prehistoric thoughts of what it would mean running through my head."

Before the diagnosis, Booth and husband Michael Quinones, who live in Los Angeles, created an Instagram account to capture Micah's life. It started as a fun way to share photos with family and friends, but it has now attracted more than 33,000 followers.

From his first time crawling to meeting new relatives and even breastfeeding dates with his mom, lifewithmicah shares all the magical moments of this photogenic fella.

Booth is excited to be able to bring Micah to set with her. They're going to start off posing together, but she hopes he'll get his own shoots eventually, too.

She is happy that her son is able to change the way people view those with Down syndrome.

"I feel so fortunate that the world sees the beauty that I see, in my son," Booth wrote on Facebook.
