Oh yeah, he’s easy on the eyes.

Chris decided to throw his older sister with down syndrome a surprise photo shoot for her birthday. His sister, Brittany, has often looked up to Chris as he achieved different life milestones. Such as moving out on his own, so she followed suit and moved to Heartbeet Lifesharing, a community of adults with special needs. Naturally when Chris began modeling, Brittany wanted to as well!

Garafola reached out on Facebook to find photographers, makeup artists, stylists, and more to orchestrate a shoot that his sister would never forget. His love for his sister is unconditional, telling PEOPLE, “For me, my purpose here is to make sure my sister has a good life, is protected and is healthy. Her happiness is my happiness, and that has held true from when we were kids to today.”

The morning of the shoot, Brittany woke up in her brother’s Boston apartment asking what their plan would be. Chris told her maybe they’d go hiking, little did she know what was actually in store! “Birthdays are huge for Brittany, she is talking about her birthday months before it happens,” Garafola told PEOPLE.
