Photographer Dad Creates Horror Photos Together With His Daughters

ADVERTISEMENT

There are many joys to being a parent, but none quite as much as being able to use your little kids to recreate gruesome and surreal scenarios that look like the stuff of nightmares. Take a look at these cool photos to see what we mean, but before you start worrying, rest assured that these kids are more than happy to feature in their dad’s creepy children photography!

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, Hoffine has spent the past decade turning nightmares into reality. Using cameras, props, and a twisted sense of imagination, the photographer also uses his daughters as models in his macabre and scary photos. His most well-known photo series, called ‘After Dark My Sweet’, focuses on the sorts of nightmares and horror characters we’ve all feared as children, and if you’d like to own your own collection of his creative photography then you can find his book on Kickstarter. Buy it if you dare…

“They loved it,” said Hoffine. “It was like a giant game of dress-up for them”

“They also knew we were making a scary picture — and loved the idea of scaring the audience as much as I did.”

For the rest of us however, Hoffine’s pictures are downright scary!

His most well-known series is called ‘After Dark My Sweet’

The series is themed around the nightmares we have as children

And as you can see from these pictures, they certainly are nightmarish!

There sure are a lot of perverts in these comments. Seriously, who looks at a little girl in underwear and starts thinking about sexual stuff? A pedo, that's who. You all should go see a therapist or something.

Damn, I didn't even see that we can see someone's underwear. As you said, some people are really perverts. -_-

I was raised by a horror fan. I'm a horror fan. I raised my kids to be horror fans. As long as the kids are having fun (not forced, not scared), it's all good. I realize a lot of people think these are disturbing photos but I think they are actually a cool way for a horror fan family to spend bonding time together. Awesome, fun photo shoot!
