A mum's adorable and hilarious photoshoot of her son with autism has gone viral online for all of the right reasons!

Knowing that her son struggles with taking photos, the mum dressed up in a blow up dinosaur outfit to pose with him for some photos.

"I bought the costume as a surprise because I knew he would love it, and he did," she told Babble. "He laughed hysterically. The session went great and the kids love the photos."

"[In] many of his photos you will notice he is looking away from the camera and not smiling, when in fact he is a very happy go lucky and goofy kid in person."

"This is the goofy, hilarious, kindhearted boy I was given," the woman wrote in a Facebook post. "Because of his special needs, he has a near-photographic memory, he is as blunt as they come, he can build anything, and he is hilarious and brilliant. And so I choose to celebrate his 'labels' and teach him to use them to his advantage rather than see them as an obstacle."

Check out some photos of the shoot below...
