Their friendship has a special significance because Lola is essentially the sister that Harper will never have. Check out Leimbach’s photos to see just how integral a dog can be to its family, and check out her website if you like what you see!

A few months ago we wrote about Beau, his puppy Theo, and the adorable naps they liked to take together. Although the two pals are growing bigger seemingly by the day, it looks like they still enjoy catching some shut-eye together. It all began last Christmas, when two of Shyba’s older children, Jack and Zoe, met Santa Claus in New York and asked him for a puppy.
The children on this list are true hide-and-seek champions. They are quick as the wind and as silent as shadows, capable of hiding in plain sight. Or at least that’s what they seem to think. Until around 7 years of age, most children are not yet sufficiently cognitively developed to be able to take another individual’s perspective into consideration. Therefore, when they close or block their eyes, not only can they not see anything, but they think that nobody else can see anything either.
Sadly, most of us can’t remember our reactions to most of the new things when we tried them for the very first time. In order to capture some of these first experiences, photographers David Wile and April Maciborka pictured toddlers tasting lemon for the first time. The bitter fruit, that even adults might be sometimes reluctant to taste, called out the most genuine reactions from all of the kids, going from disbelief to shock or betrayal.
Once a photographer becomes a parent – especially to a baby daughter – he no longer has to look for a model to work with. This was once again proved by Japanese photographer Toyokazu Nagano, taking just the most adorable photos of his youngest daughter, 4-year-old Kanna. The photo series is well described by its laconic name – My Daughter Kanna – as the girl and her natural charm is just enough to fill an entire frame. Each picture is taken on the same road, with little Kanna giving all of her into each pose and mood.
If Singlhild Nystrom survives all the crazy things she’s doing, she will have one of the coolest childhood photo albums ever – all thanks to her dad’s endless imagination and Photoshop skills. Swedish photographer Emil Nystrom digitally inserts his 1-year-old daughter into such crazy situations as fixing a car, wielding a ninja sword or flying after a plane.
Jill Greenberg’s exhibit, called End Times, shows photos of various kids crying as if something terrible had happened. One photography enthusiast revealed photographer’s rather cruel way of making her models cry – Greenberg gives them lollipop and then quickly takes it away.
Photographer Jaime Moore was looking for inspirational ideas to celebrate her daughter Emma’s 5th birthday, and ended up photographing her beautiful girl posing as some of the most influential women in history. Jaime chose 5 women for Emma to impersonate, and thus her daughter became the mini version of Coco Chanel, Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller and Jane Goodhall.
Adele Emersen used to present herself as a copywriter & concept designer in advertising, but now she’s probably more famous for her maternity leave hobby – photographing her children while they sleep and then adding some adorable details to the pictures. This summer she photographed her baby with an iPhone, and then sketched some activities on top of the pictures. Minimalistic and nicely child-like, they are exactly what you wanna see in your childhood album once you grow up. Some moms just don’t know what it means to get lazy or bored!
Remember Jason Lee and the crazy pictures of his beautiful daughters? Well, it seems that he’s got some serious competition fighting for the World’s Best Father award. Dave Engledow is creating probably the wackiest scrapbook ever showing himself and his daughter Alice Bee in highly precarious situations.
Jason Lee who is a wedding photographer started taking photos of his two little daughters back in 2006 when his mom was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The girls were constantly sick, with colds and coughs so he couldn’t always bring them to visit their grandmother. Jason wanted her to be able to see her granddaughters without catching their kid germs so he started a blog where his mom could see what was going on in their lives.
