What if you could be anything you ever dreamed of. Actually, what if you could do it in your sleep. Photographer Laura Izumikawa is doing just this for her baby girl Joey, and the best thing is… when she gets older she’ll be able to look back on so many adventures.
The concept is very easy, when Joey’s asleep, her photographer mom, Laura, dresses her up as if she is in a wild adventure. Then she takes a photo. Those photos are posted to Laura’s Instagram account for the world to enjoy. And enjoy they shall. Or at least give a big smile.
Ever since she started the account it grew to have over 306,000 followers and rapidly growing with recent exposure from Huffington Post and other media outlets.
Of course my immediate question was about Joey’s sleeping schedule. Laura reassured me that Joey “sleeps like a baby” and rarely wakes up from the dress-up games. (on another note, she will probably be up full nights as a teen showing those photos to her boyfriend – so sleeping time will even out). If she does wake up, she’s most likely to want to play a bit.
Surprisingly this is all creativity and zero gear. Laura tells us that the camera is an iPhone 6s and the light is just a big window by the bed.
