Aiden’s Daydreams : Gainesville, Virginia : Baby Photographer

Ever wonder what your little one dreams of while he sleeps? That question was the premise for this photo series I’ve been working on with my precious baby boy . It is entitled “Aiden’s Daydreams.” Wish I was the one who came up with this awesome idea, but credit is due to fellow mom Adele Enersen. Adele has even published a book chronicalling her daughter’s dreams called When My Baby Dreams. It’s pretty stinkin’ creative stuff! For all you moms and mommies to be, this is a fun, easy and inexpensive way to photograph your growing child. Seriously, most of the props you see in the photos below are items that are just lying around your house. I used aluminum foil to cut out the stars, lots of blankets, folded shirts to look like kites, pinned onsies to look like fish, used left over chinese take out containers for musical notes…and so forth. So moms, look around your house. Get creative and photograph your sleeping child!
