UMEÅ, Sweden — Hanging off a shelf, flying behind a plane, chopping fruit with a samurai sword: thanks to a talented dad and a little technology, a baby from Sweden is mastering impressive skills.
Advertising photographer Emil Nyström has created a fun photo series featuring his daughter Signhild doing hilarious and quirky things.
“The first picture I took was when I tested out some new gear,” Nyström, 26, told Today.com. “Signhild was my test subject and she did a funny face and held her hands in a weird way, and I loaded the pictures on my computer and did some editing in Photoshop. Since then I’ve been giving my crazy ideas life in photos.”
Crazy, indeed. Little Signhild, now 2, has become a car mechanic, a fairy, a painter, a superhero, and made friends with a gorilla all during her short two years of life. New sister Hilma has started to join in on the family fun as well.
"It's just so much fun. There is nothing serious about these pictures and that shows when we take them," Nyström told the Daily Mail. "The only thing that usually is in my mind when I take them is to get as funny face as possible from the baby."
Mom Isabelle, 25, also makes some appearances in the series. Nyström told the Daily Mail he came up with the idea after watching funny commercials when Isabelle was pregnant with Signhild.
