This mum used pizza slices for her baby’s milestone photos and they are awesome!

Photographer, Dani Giannandrea, shared a photo project that she’s been working on for the past year.

It involves her second son, Lorenzo, and a lot of delicious-looking pizza.

The series of photos followed baby Enzo’s month-by-month growth progression until he turned 1 on Feb. 10.

Each month, the mum would snap a photo of her baby boy lying on the opened lid of a pizza box ā€” next to one slice at 1 month old, two slices at 2 months old etc

“The pizza theme was inspired by my Lorenzo’s Grandmother, saying that I had to do something Italian as an ode to his name,” Giannandrea tells Romper, adding her husband’s family is Italian and Lorenzo was the first name they agreed on.

“I had originally just thought about using pizza shaped plates and just doing that in a pizza box every month but then I figured if we were going to do this, we may as well do it right and get dinner out of it once a month. We love our local pizza place, il Forno, in Frederick, so it seemed like a no brainer!”

“It seems as if everyone loves this idea ā€” I love something happy being populated around the web,” Giannandrea tells Romper.

Very unique! Certainly beats all the milestone cards everyone else uses.
