‘When My Baby Dreams,’ the Book

February 2nd, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  2 Comments

A strange little story for the morning: a friend from Moscow posted a link to a gallery of frankly pretty amazing infant pictures taken by a mom in Finland named Adele Enersen. Clicking again on the link this morning, I found the gallery gone and nothing but the main site, which is some kind of web design that claims it is “powered by Jesus” (we need to upgrade our servers, I guess).

I finally tracked down the original content, only to find that 1) these pictures aren’t new—they are from the summer at least, and 2) this poor mom has been pretty distressed about all the insane copyright violations and pictures of her child popping up in ads, private blogs, whatever, around the world: not quite the meme-ification of Stephen Rout, but close.

So she’s taken most of the photos down. They were, like the one I’m posting here, a pretty amazing collection of dress-up scenarios done to her baby while the kid was sleeping. The inspired minor abuse behind the pictures is what I dug: the most I could think to do while my kids were sleeping infants was to draw mustaches on them or prop a beer next to their little hands. That is because I am a guy and a dumbass. But these pictures are fantastic, and actually, the blog she started instead of taking those photos is pretty good, too. Check it out.

The final silver lining: it appears she got a book deal at least. It should be out next year, and the working title is “When my Baby Dreams.” Buy it.

    she had the most amazing images of her babe in fantasy land. I was so disappointed when she took most of the images down. :( Let me see if I can find the photo where used all her images to create a mosaic.
