"Sleep when the baby sleeps" is one of the most repeated bits of advice moms get. But what if that just doesn't work for you?
L.A. photographer Laura Izumikawa decided instead of sleeping when her daughter, Joey Marie Choi, was sleeping she would dress her up instead.
Izumikawa told the Huffington Post, "I would end up just staring at her face all day and night because I was just so in love. Because Joey slept so deeply, I thought it'd be fun adding little props on her just to send some hilarious pictures to our parents. It was a way to memorialize her growth and little milestones."
Her Instagram has grown to over 72,000 followers and she is receiving support from people all over the world.
"I started receiving messages from countless people who said that the photos and videos were the highlight of their day and for some, a thing they enjoy to watch with their kids. I hope that these photos and videos will make people smile and also remind parents to have fun with their kids and not get too caught up in the seriousness of parenting."
