Anna Eftimie is not unlike many moms in that she grins irrepressibly when her sleepy tots come to snuggle in bed with her, her heart melts when her baby raises his arms to be swooped in her embrace, and she gets down and dirty in her best clothes at the playground if it means the opportunity for a side-by-side adventure with her kids.
The different between Eftimie and other moms, however, is that she is a professional photographer and has a talent for catching those snuggly, sleepy, happy and playful moments in eminently creative ways on film. With a self-proclaimed “passion for details,” she takes snapshots of babies that allow their personality — or perhaps their future personality — to emerge in a way that will be cherished forever.
Eftimie’s Blackboard Adventures photos, for example, show babies amid exciting and imaginative chalkboard drawings — while they’re asleep on the chalkboard.
