Funny Portraits of Henry the Flying Baby

 

New York City-based photographer Rachel Hulin noticed her husband lifting up their son Henry one day and imagined what the scene would look like if her husband was cropped out of the picture. The result was their son seemingly suspended in mid-air. Depending on the post, Henry appeared to be flying or floating.

The poses are natural and it’s fun to try and imagine Hulin’s husband in the original shot holding the baby (their son is never ‘thrown’ in the air for the sake of a photo). The images have become very popular online getting coverage on CNN, Time, CBS and ABC. The unexpected publicity has led to a 40-page hardcover book entitled Flying Henry that will be published in April 2013. You can pre order your own copy on Amazon here.
