Dad Dresses Baby Girl For All Possible Future Employment Opportunities



[View All on One Page]

French photographer Eric Maloberti (Malo) put together an adorable series featuring his 3-month-old daughter titled, “One Day My Child, You Will Be.” It features baby June in a bunch of different vocations. The best part, for us at least, is Maloberti didn’t stick to traditional job-related gender stereotypes when putting his project together.

Maloberti told DisneyBaby.com:

One day my son told me that he wanted to be an explorer when he grew up. My daughter, on the other hand, was set on becoming an artist. It made me wonder what they would really become. I thought about how parents used to decide their children’s futures for them. If we envisioned a military career, we’d push our children to become notaries, lawyers and doctors. Today your profession is still important, but it’s only one thing among many. We can hope for our children to become symbols and icons: an athlete, a Miss Something or a rock star. I found the idea amusing and decided I’d have to make it into a photo series. The birth of my last daughter gave me the opportunity.

    The last one… with the waders… and the hat….
    I think my ovaries just released an extra 15 eggs.

    Put them all in one picture, and you have The League of Superbabies.

    Adorable.

    Is it just me or did anyone else think, when they first saw the butcher picture, “serial killer”?

    Very cute, though. Loved the toreador outfit.

    Awwwww, he even punched his baby in the face for realism with the boxing photo. You have to admire someone with that kind of dedication to their art.

    I went another step and thought Dexter-like. Good Serial Killer: Killing only the bad ones.

    I understand gender neutrality is great and all, but the “best part” is clearly baby luchador. The best part of anything is always the baby luchador.

    I heard that baby went on a crash diet and lost 70 grams, so she could play the ballerina part.

    That’s dedication to art.

    It’s great to see that although not enforcing gender stereotypes, he’s also not shying away from occupations that are seen as being more commonly accustomed to girls. I’ve seen too many people do the exact flip-side of the usual gender-stereotyping problem, by saying that their girl will ONLY follow something perceived as a more commonly male-dominated career path, or that their boy will ONLY follow something perceived as a more commonly female-dominated career path, which creates a whole new problem in itself.

    This is what all parents should be doing, allowing their child to choose for themselves REGARDLESS of whether it fits what society has told them is “normal” for their gender.

    Yeah, I saw that and was immediately curious about how he achieved that look. Surely three-months old is too young for eye make-up. Photoshop?

  • Travis

    I would say photoshop. Color is one thing, but the squint would be hard to set up.

    Shh! The makers of Baby Genuises might hear you!

    I love how her hair is sticking up in some of the pictures. I die.

    She totally rocked surfer-dudette!

    Now… What happened to her eye in the Boxer photo?

    I love the fisherman outfit. I wanted to be a fisherman when I was little, but I grew up to only be 5’2.” I’ve known a few fishermen and women, and they’ve all said if you’re not tall enough to work comfortably with most of the equipment, it can be a huge hassle. Also, I’m a weakling.
