Do you remember your childhood photos? Barring some pretty embarrassing pictures, our childhood memories could be a blur. There was a time when such momentous occasions were not even documented. This was followed by the era of the camera and spool, which resulted in limited pictures. But the scenario is entirely different and super creative today, especially if the example of Brazilian visual artist Lucas de Ouro’s work for his newborn daughter is anything to go by. The doting dad chose to commemorate their baby’s first months with a photoshoot involving famous paintings with the cutest little 18-month-old Letícia as the model. He ditched traditional baby photography and replaced it with greats from the world of art such as Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer, and Self Portrait Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser by Frida Kahlo. While everything remains flawlessly similar in Ouro’s creations, the only difference is little Letícia angelic face replacing the subjects in these iconic paintings.
Picture-perfect baby Letícia is seen donning the legendary flower crown and hand-shaped earrings to emulate Frida Kahlo. In the Da Vinci-inspired piece, Mona Lisa’s famous smile is replaced with the cutest pout in the world. Letícia effortlessly recreates Girl with a Pearl Earring as she wears a navy blue headband, brown shawl, and of course, the famous pearl earring. De Ouro comments on his creative edits, “I spent some fun hours in post-production of this image and tried to get very close to the tones of the painting. The secret of a photo like this is the details, and the big trick was to darken the veil because Letícia still doesn’t have that hair, right?!” Have you seen anything cuter than this?
