It’s a wonder we’ve never come across another photographer doing this, or perhaps it’s just never been done so well. We’re all familiar with Australian photographer Anne Geddes’s ubiquitous photos of sleeping babies. But Southern California-based photographer Laura Izumikawa takes a slightly edgier approach. What we imagine started off as the new mother’s inability to rest while her newborn daughter, Joey Marie, sleeps, Izumikawa channeled her stellar photography skills into a growing series that we just can’t get enough of. From Beyoncé to Pikachu to Sia to Cinderella, Izumikawa photographs her adorable (and cooperative) daughter in various states of costumed slumber. Not sure how long these brilliant cosplay (yes, a contraction of the words costume and play) photos can/will continue, but we urge Izumikawa to keep snapping a dozing Joey as long as she can. Brings a huge smile to our faces!

We realize not everyone is into dogs (or kids), but this series of portraits by Los Angeles-based photographer Grace Chon is irresistibly endearing. Chon’s subjects are her toddler son Jasper, and her 7 year old rescue mutt from Taiwan named Zoey. Chon dons both dog and child in matching outfits, then snaps away. Easy enough, right? Well, getting a dog or child to cooperate with such shenanigans is more difficult than it looks. But Chon pulls it off beautifully time after time. There is an undeniable innocence and loving bond captured here, and we credit Chon’s superb skills and instincts as professional photographer and doting mother.
