Something silly for the ‘Silly Season’… because who doesn’t love a sleeping baby?

California artist, children’s illustrator and mother Queenie Liao created a series of sleepscapes after her first son, Wengenn, was born.

She used linen, household items and stuffed animals to create the narratives called ‘Wengenn in Wonderland‘ – a compilation of more than 100 photos.

They remind me of Anne Geddes‘ and Adele Enersen‘s photography with whimsical scenes set up around a child – but in this case it’s a peacefully sleeping baby.

Wengenn says she drew on fairytales from her own childhood and before Wengenn’s nap each day she would set up a scene ready to place him into when he fell asleep. Then off to work she went with her camera.

The series of photos have been made into a Chinese book – with an English-language version on the horizon.

Take a look as three-month-old Wengenn travels to far-away lands as a prince, cowboy, scarecrow and more, all while he sleeps… and I challenge you not to smile!
