Mickey Mouse is turning 90 years old… and one photographer is honoring the pop culture icon with an infant photoshoot showcasing some of Mickey’s most legendary looks.
Babble teamed up with Karen Marie of Belly Beautiful Portraits to recreate his most legendary looks using some of the cutest models around – sweet newborn babies.
“A famous Walt Disney quote that really resonated with me while researching this project was, ‘I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse,'”
-Karen Marie, Belly Beautiful Portraits
Marie explains that, like many of us, she grew up watching Walt Disney classics like The Little Mermaid and visiting Disneyland with her family – traditions she now shares with her own children.
She transformed that passion into an amazing photoshoot, here’s a look:
