Meet photographer Laura Izumikawa and her 4-month-old daughter, Joey Marie.

Never imagined I would breastfeed Joey inside a tattoo parlor. Today was a first for many things on our first big outing.

The new mom said she couldn’t help but stare at the little cutie pie while she slept — and that’s when she had an idea. “Joey slept so deeply so I thought it’d be fun adding little props around her just to send some hilarious pictures to our parents and friends,” she said.

On Wednesdays we wear pink ? #meangirls

Building costumes from stuff lying around the house, or borrowing items from friends, Izumikawa has been able to create some incredible mini-outfits.

The first real costume she dressed Joey in saw the baby transform into the singer Sia, complete with the trademark blonde bob covering her face.



When Izumikawa dressed up Joey as Eleven from Stranger Things last week, the picture went massively viral, receiving more than 10,000 likes in just a few days.

Our friend has superpowers, and she squeezed your tiny bladder with her mind. #StrangerThings #eleven

THE DRESS. THE NOSE BLEED. THE EGGOS. IT’S TOO MUCH.

“It’s really hard not to laugh!” Laura said, admitting that she didn’t know how Joey would react in the few times she has woken up during the photo shoots.

“She usually just smiles and goes right back to sleep which is kind of crazy,” she said. “If it was me, I don’t think I could just go back to sleep, especially with a ridiculous wig on. I think those are the moments I try especially hard to stifle my laughter. “

Here’s a great video showing how the Stranger Things look came together:
