Erika Seress, a photographer at The Pod Photography in Culver City, CA, wants to spread the message about how important it is to vote this year. And while our social media feeds are inundated with reminders, none of them are nearly as eye-catching as Erika's presidential photo shoot, which includes two adorable kids.
Featuring an incredible mini replica of the Oval Office, Erika perfected every detail between the American flags and tiny works of art hung on the walls. Of course, it wouldn't be the president's office without an intricate desk, which is why Erika chose to put it front and center for a few shots.
"I was so excited by their inspiration and set out to create a kid-scaled Oval Office down to the smallest detail."
"The parents wanted their son's first birthday photo set to be the Oval Office from [Barack] Obama's presidency," Erika told POPSUGAR. "I was so excited by their inspiration and set out to create a kid-scaled Oval Office down to the smallest detail. I purchased fabric and made the wallpaper, curtains, and re-created the exact artwork on the walls. But I am most proud of the Resolute Desk, which we sourced and customized from a local furniture store. We even printed photos of the little guy's family to fill the famous frames behind it!"
"Our client wanted to make a statement with an ever-present reminder that their kids can achieve anything — even president!" Erika explained. "Perhaps these photos, and the hope and optimism they portray, will encourage and inspire parents and kids everywhere to follow their passions and achieve their dreams. I also want parents to see that they can embrace issues that are meaningful to them in a lighthearted, creative way to include and influence their children."
