A good baby photo is hard to come by so we can all be forgiven for helping make it happen once in a while. But these parents have taken it to a whole new level and staged their babies in various, amazing snaps.
New dad Emil Nystrom has taken a series of amazing images of his baby daughter. Sure, he is a professional photographer (and has used Photoshop quite a lot), but they’re still incredibly artistic and show just how adorable – and multitalented – his little girl is. In this snap, his baby is lending a helping hand and painting a wall. What a clever tot. Image by Emil Nystrom.
Here, Emil’s baby is showing just how skilled she is with a broken engine. If only all our babies were that skilled, eh? Image by Emil Nystrom.
A plane journey must be much more fun if you’re Emil’s baby… but we’re not sure we would want the wind burn. Image by Emil Nystrom.
A Messy Playdate
You’ve probably seen food end up on your baby’s head/face/entire body, but possibly not while he’s sitting in a wooden crate with a gorilla. It’s original, alright. Image by Emil Nystrom.
Ninja baby is a force to be reckoned with. She’s one tough cookie and ready to take on the entire contents of your fridge. Image by Emil Nystrom.
We’re not sure what your baby’s bathtime is like, but Emil’s tot loves to practice her gymnast skills while scrubbing off a day’s dirt. Image by Emil Nystrom.
Flying Henry Visits The Fairground

Henry checks in with a couple of cows. Like you do. Image by Rachel Hulin.
Flying Henry Teaches Others His Craft
Henry comes across a few other flying babies who are on his flight path. A novel idea for a playdate, perhaps? Image by Rachel Hulin.
Flying Henry Takes A Tour Of The Kitchen
Why play on the floor when so much fun can be had in the air? In this picture, Henry seems to be checking that his mum has done all the washing up. Image by Rachel Hulin.
French photographer Eric Maloberti photographed his three-month-old daughter June in various different vocation uniforms – and the finished effect is adorable. This first one has to be our favourite and the most baby-appropriate as almost every child grows up wanting to be a superhero. Image by Eric Maloberti.
Oh-so-sweetly clasping her hands together, June is every inch the perfect bishop in this photograph (albeit a bit young for the job). Image by Eric Maloberti.
It’s every girl’s dream to swan around in a tutu, but little June doesn’t look too thrilled by this get up. Change of career, perhaps? Image by Eric Maloberti.
What a cool dude. Complete with faux (we hope) tattoo, sharks tooth necklace and incredible yellow shades, Jane looks ready to catch some waves. Image by Eric Maloberti.
Cabin Crew Baby
Wherever June’s dad Eric got this outfit from, he hit gold with it. Looking just as smart as you would expect a flight attendant to, June looks absolutely adorable. Image by Eric Maloberti.
Mila Dreams Of Space
While on maternity leave, concept designer Adele Enersen started a blog where she posts photos of scenes she’s created around her daughter Mila when she’s napping. In this snap, Mia looks like she’s having some dreams that are out of this world… Image by Adele Enersen.
Mila Dreams Of Teddy Bear Picnics
In this snap, Adele cleverly uses clothing to construct a mushroom and turns her snoozing daughter into a snail complete with tights as antennae. Image by Adele Enersen.

Every new parent is undoubtedly on a mission to get more zzz’s, so it surely makes sense to research the best mattress for your little one and find out what really goes on under the surface they are lying on for over 8 hours every day.
In the hot seat this month and straight from Mother&Baby's Editor' shopping basket, Maria Martin shares what she's got her eye on to prepare you for some fun times in the garden, in the park or perhaps at the local lido with your babies and toddlers this summer.
As a parent, you probably take multiple photos of your little one every day – there are so many amazing milestones to cross off your list as you watch your baby grow, capturing and sharing these milestones and memories is a joy.
