Magical Newborn Photo Shoot Inspires a Love of Harry Potter for the Next Generation
Lorelai Grace may only be a 3-month-old baby, but she’s already casting an aww-worthy spell on the world with her Harry Potter-inspired newborn photo shoot. Her mother, Kayla Glover of Kayla Layla Photography, has been a fan of the wizarding series since she was 10 years old and only thought it appropriate to pass on her love to little Lorelai.
For the wickedly cute scene, Glover placed her baby in a miniature Halloween cauldron and draped Lorelai’s small body with a scarlet and gold striped Gryffindor scarf. All seven books were stacked around the cauldron centerpiece, where baby Lorelai sat magically with her play wand and thick round glasses, which were humorously too large for her face. And even though the adorable little girl was easygoing during the shoot, Glover reported to Huffington Post, “She enjoyed trying to chew on the wand any chance she got, and her little face looked so silly when the glasses would slip down her nose.” Nevertheless, it’s her big, joyful smile that gives hope that Harry Potter will continue its popularity for the next generation of readers and dreamers.
Glover plans to introduce Lorelai to the Harry Potter books when she turns ten. In the meantime, she’ll just have to keep taking adorable photos of Lorelai as all the characters from the series. The mother says, “Now that her hair has changed to red, I’m thinking I’ll at some point need to make her a Weasley as well!”
