Kayla Glover is a 29-year-old professional photographer from Perkin, Illinois, and the mother to an adorable 5-month-old girl named Lorelai Grace.
Aside from being a photographer, Glover is also a lifelong Harry Potter fan. She told BuzzFeed News that she had been a loyal fan of the series since she was 10, and has never missed a midnight release party or late-night movie premiere.
When it came time for Lorelai Grace to do a photo shoot, Glover knew a Harry Potter theme would be a perfect fit.
With the help of her husband, she gathered her books and various props and set up a session in her home studio.
The magical transformation started with a pair of glasses Glover got from the release party of Order of the Phoenix.
The rest of the mystical shoot came together with a wand, Gryffindor scarf, and of course her cherished books.
Glover said she plans to incorporate more elements of the series into her daughter's upbringing. "I dream of the day I can share Harry Potter with her and I hope she loves it as much as I do. I'm a big fan of themes and I hope a Harry Potter birthday party is in her future!"
She went on to tell BuzzFeed what she hoped people would take away form the shoot:
I think a lot of times our vision gets so clouded by the negativity floating around the news and social media. It's nice to stop for a moment and appreciate the beauty and innocence of a child dressed as a character that represents strength, integrity, determination, and a level of humility that is often times lost in this day and age.
