Few babies will protest when thrown up into the sky by their parents. Whether it’s the thrill and feel of the air rushing past them on the way up and down, or the simple delight of the game, watching babies fly can give you a glimpse into the core sweetness of their imagination and personality.
In an attempt to try and capture the mystery and magic that babies might feel when their loved ones hold them up in the air, photographer Rachel Hulin created shots of her infant-son Henry flying in the summer of 2011.
“It was Henry’s world,” Hulin told Yahoo Shine. “The pictures were kind of an allegory for that.”
The result? Whimsical, ethereal and totally magical photos that have been justifiably making the rounds online for several months. The photos are such a hit that a book of the photos, Henry’s World, will be released next spring.
Take a look at some of the lovely magic of flying baby Henry:
