They’re the “baby” photos that have now gone viral — and technically, they’re not even baby photos.

A 13-year-old boy was photographed in classic “newborn portrait” style, after a photographer wanted to give him the baby photos he never had.

Latrell Higgins was adopted, along with his sister Chanya when they were 10 and 5-years-old respectively.

Their adopted mother, Kelli Higgins – who is a professional photographer – got the idea to snap the ‘baby’ photos after Latrell mentioned to her that he wished he had baby photos.
