Most new moms, and an overwhelming majority of new dads, see a child’s nap-time as an opportunity to catch up. Maybe it is sleep. Maybe it’s work. But check out the amazing results this photographer gets when her daughter nods off.

Laura Izumikawa takes some amazing pictures. And it appears that her 4-month-old daughter, Joey Marie, could sleep through even the most involved costume change.

“Joey slept so deeply so I thought it’d be fun adding little props around her just to send some hilarious pictures to our parents and friends,” Izumikawa told Buzzfeed.

The new mom has been building costumes from clothes she already has on hand, or things she’s able to borrow from friends. Her first actual costume changes the little girl into the singer Sia.

Last week, Izumikawa pulled off a Stranger Things tribute that has gone viral.

So what happens if Joey wakes up during a photo shoot? She’s not old enough, yet, to really understand what’s happening. “She usually just smiles and goes right back to sleep, which is kind of crazy,” Izumikawa said. “If it was me, I don’t think I could just go back to sleep, especially with a ridiculous wig on. I think those are the moments I try especially hard to stifle my laughter. “

Here’s Joey as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones.

“If she’s our kid,” Izumikawa said sarcastically, “she’ll probably have a good sense of humor and will have a big laugh about it.” If nothing else, she’ll have baby pictures that no one will complain about having to look at.
