Creative Mom Takes Adorable Photos of Her Sleeping Son

A California woman has earned herself quite a following after taking a series of photographs of her young child. Taking a unique approach to baby photography, she created incredibly ingenious portraits of her son doing a variety of activities, including interviewing the President of the United States, charming snakes, and playing the part of a nutcracker. Take a look at the clip below to see an interview with the photographer and indulge in some of her fabulous portraits:

Wengenn, the unknowing subject of the portrait series, is quite the star. After posting her photos online, Wengenn’s mother, Queenie Liao, says she received over one million likes in just a matter of days. She is still receiving requests for prints, calendars, and books.


There’s no end to this photographer’s creativity.


A circus scene is just one of Liao’s many ideas.

Liao’s advice to aspiring photographers with children:

“Take lots of pictures, because they grow really fast. Be creative. Enjoy the process and have fun. It’s the work of love, and your kids will treasure them when they grow up.”
