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."
