Usually baby photography is all about capturing happy, smiling, bouncing bundles of joy. Well, that is not what Evan Kafka's baby photography is all about.

Evan Kafka's shoots these kids while they are crying, drooling, spitting and just plain miserable. Evan Kafka pretty much paints a realistic picture of parenthood. I'm not saying some of these kids aren't cute, but this could easily have worked as an ad for birth control.

Implications - While some individuals might find this unnerving and uninviting in terms of photography, it is important to remember the truth at times and this series of photographs certainly offers it in telling ways. Screaming babies, dirty diapers and toddler temper-tantrums are simply a stage in life that everyone goes through! I admire Evan Kafka for his honesty.
