"When taking pictures of my daughter, Mila, I use stuff that's hanging around the house. It's more fun and ecological to discover these household items all over again." Adele Enersen, author and blogger at milasdaydreams.blogspot.com
The inspiration: "One afternoon Mila fell asleep on a blanket on the floor, stretched out like she was dreaming of a fencing match. So my husband put his conductor's baton in her hand like a little sword and we took our first 'daydream' picture. After that, I kept thinking of new ideas to make little scenes about her daydreams," says Enersen.
Get the shot: Wait for your child to fall asleep on the background blanket so you can create the scene around her quickly. Use blankets and sheets to make the tree and grass, then craft the swing out of string and a stick or rolling pin.
