What is it about babies that makes them so disarmingly beautiful? Is it the promise of new life and progress that comes with them? The endless possibilities that small being presents means something unbelievable. In the words of Don Draper, protagonist of the popular series Mad Men, “We don’t know who he is yet, or what he’s gonna be. And that is a wonderful thing.”
It’s hard to capture the essence of innocence in pictures or people. Yet with babies, it is so easy. Every single photo is a perfect portrayal of purity. Is it how little they know about this world and how untouched they are by its rules and values that makes them so? Perhaps the hope the image of baby encapsulates for us just stems from the memory that we were all once so pure and untouched, with infinite possibilities ahead of us, ready to conquer the world.
Regardless of the reason why we find babies so unbelievably amazing to look at, we know simply adorable and very pleasing to the eye. So let’s take a look at some wonderful pieces of baby photography that best capture all of the above!
A baby’s life is a continuous cycle of sleep and adventure. Whenever they aren’t dreaming of white fuzzy toys and unicorns safely tucked in their blankets or their parents ‘arms, they are discovering the world piece by piece – seeing it, touching it, tasting it, smelling it.
Can you remember the last time you slept like this – with no worries and ghosts from the past haunting your dreams?

Mother and Baby by Lydia Nimmo
Baby Mylah is sleeping undisturbed in her mother’s arms. She is protected and safe from every bad thing in the world.
Once they wake up from their long slumber they are ready to explore and learn. With their parents and their friends by their side, they slowly work towards getting their first steps and learning the names of their favorite toys. Adventure time is a wonderful part of the cycle to observe. Each baby is a superhero, protagonist in their own story that’s being written one gaze at a time.
