This dad’s photo series with his baby girl is the best optical illusion

OK, here’s the truth: The older we get, the more likely it is that we’ll be seeing baby pictures. On Facebook, on Instagram, through e-mail, on blogs — our friends are having babies, our siblings are having babies, everyone’s having babies! We’re seeing babies in rustic baskets, babies swaddled in photogenic cable-knit blankets, babies doing irresistibly cute baby things — and no matter how you feel about tiny, wrinkly humans, your heart eventually swells up with all the feels, because babies are the best! They’re so adorable! And best of all, they don’t even KNOW how adorable they are!

Polish mom and dad Ania Waluda and Michal Zawar also have a very, very cute baby and wanted to present their family and friends with pictures of her. But they didn’t want to upload a regular ‘ol baby pic. Nope. They wanted to do something a little quirkier.

Which is why they decided to pose their daughter Emilia to look like she was flying, balancing on her tippy-toes, and being blown away by the gusto of a hair dryer. Not only is it all ridiculously precious, but dad Michal Zawar didn’t even use Photoshop! It’s all just angling (and don’t worry —baby Emilia was very, very safe). Zawar and Waluda told The Huffington Post, “The main idea behind this photo shoot was our daughter’s safety.” And they also wanted to keep it minimalist, so they didn’t use any fancy accessories. According to The Huffington Post, “they created images by simply laying baby Emilia on a mattress, alongside her father and various small props. Then, Waluda captured the images from above (taking a few short breaks when Emilia fell asleep).” The results are awesome.

And by posting these photos publicly, Emilia’s dad hopes to encourage other people to have fun with their baby photos . “We wanted to inspire other people to take creative newborn pictures rather than using awkward props and scenography,” Zawar and Waluda told The Huffington Post.

More creative baby pix please!
