Parents of three, Vanessa and Anthony Rivera, create some of the most whimsical (and 100% Instagram-worthy) family portraits that we’ve ever seen. They incorporate a variety of magical elements - from mermaid tails to dinosaurs - that are just breathtaking.

The portraits started with Vanessa’s desire for baby photos during a period of time when the family was going through financial struggles.

“Anthony had just gotten laid off about a month before I gave birth, so we just couldn’t afford any newborn photos, ” she explains. “I just remember being really heartbroken.”

However, Vanessa was able to turn this challenging circumstance into a positive opportunity.

“I took it upon myself to start playing with my camera phone and I started taking pictures of him [son Indie] myself.”

From there, the Riveras’ photos took the Internet by storm on their beautifully curated Instagram account.

The kids - Adyline, Xander, and Indie - actually play huge roles in developing the concepts of each photo.

“All of our pictures are inspired by our kids, ” Vanessa shares.

Anthony adds that the photos, while surreal, do play on their kids’ actual personalities.

“[We] literally translate their personality into some superpower that they have, ” he says.
