Is it teething time for your little one?


Photographer Anna Angenend was inspired by her three-year-old daughter Mia to create a photo series about children and their imaginary friends.


Teaming up with illustrator Amy Snyder, the pair of moms came up with the series "My Monster & Me.


The images show kids having fun with their make-believe friends.


Listening to their children's description of their friends, the pair came up with different interpretations of these creatures.








I am so pleased to announce the release of the photo series "My Monster & Me," a collaboration with @annaangenendphotography. Anna shot the photos and emailed them to me, and I would illustrate an imaginary "monster" for each one, and Anna would then work her Photoshop magic. This is one of 8 photos in the series, where Anna and I brought our own children's imaginative play to life. My daughter, Irelyn (age 6), said of Wendolyn the monster in this photo: "She's waiting for me to finish drawing her so she can see." Our series was just featured on TODAY Parents, so tap the link in the bio to read the article! . . . . . #creativephotography #photoshop #collaboration #collab #mymonsterandme #illustration #characterillustration #artofinstagram #childhood #carveouttimeforart #art_we_inspire #watercolor #watercolour
