I love taking photographs. And with my infant, I’ve been seeking every opportune moment to capture smiles, funny faces, and other memorable things she does. Now, here’s a talented lady who loves taking photographs when her baby is sleeping. You may wonder why that is interesting? Well, you might change your mind when you see the backgrounds she creates.
Sioin Queenie Liao (who lives in California) creates lovely backgrounds for her photographs from anything and everything. Clothing, bed sheets, stuffed animals, books, toys are all creatively used to create settings that are almost magical. Imagine: folding a skirt to create a moon or using a belt as a snake! Queenie says that the best photographs are when the baby is fast asleep, though she admits it often takes more than two days to get a picture! She uses the Nikon D40 to click her photos.
A mother of three kids, Queenie loved photographing her kids. She was inspired by the works of Anne Geddes and Adele Enersen and decided to experiment with similar photographs herself for her third kid Wengenn. To check out how she creates these fairytale settings, read her book “Sleepy Baby” (in Chinese). An English version will be releasing shortly.
Here are a few favourites from her collection:
Sadly, Queenie only does this as a hobby. But, if she ever ventures to do this professionally, I’m sure she will have many takers. Get inspired on this talented lady’s website at http://wengenninwonderland.com
