Nagano Toyokazu is a Japanese photographer that applied his creativity to his animated 4-year old daughter, Kanna, to achieve some wildly fun pictures and memories. In an interview with The Japan Times, Toyokazu is asked about how he chooses what poses or jokes to incorporate in his photo and he responded saying, “My only criterion is whether it’s funny or not.”

” I believe laughter has a depth and universality that transcends generations. And laughter has the effect of livening things up instantaneously. It also has the power to make people happy. Laughter is a communicative shortcut, and I think it applies to communication between family members as well.” -Nagano Toyokazu

Toyokazu’s playful photos are humorous, and will be amazing for little Kanna and their family to look back on when she grows up. Let this be inspiration to all you future and current parents that you can be creative, be inspired, and be active right in your backyard with the ones you cherish most.
