How do you take your baby into space?
Laurel Morley figured out how to do that and then some.
Molly recorded her son Henry's imaginary adventures on Instagram (
Some images are more fanciful and some are more realistic, but their originality and decoration are unusual.
Her inspiration behind the photo is simple: "Like any new parent, I think he is the most beautiful child ever, and therefore, since he was born, I take dozens of pictures of him every day, "she said.
Apart from being a brandnew, first-
Time mom, Molly is a talented designer and photographer who also studied painting when she graduated from her undergraduate course.
"One day, when I loaded Henry's photos onto my laptop and started scribbling on it, all these experiences came together and a new project was born! " she said.
"In the chaos of parenting and working life, it's actually relaxing to have something just for fun.
"This is where everything starts.
Henry was sent into space since then. . .
Win over swaddles. . .

"This is Sparta ! "" (
Or something like that. )
Bonus Round: Henry scored on a homemade Tetris quilt.
If you're interested in making similar photos of your little muse, Molly explains her process: first, she takes pictures when Henry lies down or falls asleep. (
These are iPhone pictures).
The painting is determined by what Henry may be doing.
She then uses Photoshop and Wacom's digital drawing tablet to add an illustration layer to the original photo.
