Harry Potter Newborn Shoot Features a Baby Mandrake



For a Harry Potter-themed newborn shoot she did recently, photographer Kelsey Clouse made portraits of the tiny baby as a screaming mandrake.

In the magical world of Harry Potter, a Mandrake (the Mandragora) is a plant that has a root that looks like a human. The cry of a mature mandrake is fatal to anyone who hears it, but the scream of a baby mandrake will just knock you out for several hours.


Clouse, who runs Lune de la Rogue Photography, captured a perfect moment showing baby Theo screeching and his brother Harry Potter Sebastian wearing earmuffs to stay conscious. Clouse’s photo went viral on Facebook after she shared it back on July 3rd.
