Ivette Ivens is a mother of two and is known as the new age celebrity maternity and family photographer.

She started her career by capturing sleepy newborns, then took the world by storm with her “Breastfeeding Goddesses” project, and continued impressing her fans with other unique projects and artwork.

“My best friend’s girls had a sleepover at our house and I really wanted to get a perfect shot of all the kiddos and our new puppy.” – says the photographer.

Ivens shared the photo and a behind the scenes video with her fans on Instagram and it went viral in just a few hours. People called her a “sleep fairy” and couldn’t believe she managed to get the shot without waking up the kids.

Ivette Ivens makes it sound easy: “It took me over three hours to get and edit the photo. After years of working with sleepy newborns, and also carrying my sleepy children from the car to their beds, I found a flow that doesn’t bother them if they’re in a deep sleep. Same with the puppy!”

The photographer swears that the key is to take it very slowly: “I gently move one arm, wait a few minutes, then slowly reposition another.”
