Mason Murillo is my son. After his doctor was able to remove the brain tumor, As a thank you I photographed my son as superman. I printed the post surgery photograph and gave it to his doctor at our parent support group. She loved it. That sparked the idea of photographing other kids as their favorite character in full costume and that’s how Mason’s Heroes was created.
