Adults Eating Like Babies (Photographic Evidence)

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

We’ve all been tempted to do it. That plate of squooshy food, staring up at you. Begging you to do it…

“Squoosh me all over
your face!”

Imagine if you did. If you just let go. And squooshed. Everywhere! Setting down silverware and giving in to the irresistable tractor beam of the glorious squooshiness of food!

“Adults are so concerned about propriety that they forget the joy of food,” said Danielle Bright, the creator and photographer of this series. Thanks to her, you don’t need to grab a double-fistful of joy and start covering yourself in it in order to see what it would look like.

And there you have it! Adults eating food like babies!

In addition to photographing grown-adults shotgunning deliciousness all over their faces and heads, Danielle Bright also does professional portraiture of babies, kids, men and women (not covered in food).

She told me the photo shoot was so much fun and her poor victims ehem! I mean “models” were great to work with. The inspiration(s) for the shoot were her four kids, having cleaned up after them countless times, she said she could only imagine the joy they experienced by eating with all their senses.

And, I have to I have to admit, I want to cover all my senses in food so bad right now it’s pretty ridiculous.

    I wish I could get away with eating like my 2 year old. This is pretty funny.

      You just gave me an idea! I think my toddler would love a messy food date with Mommy. She was bummed that I wouldn’t let her participate in the shoot, so that would be my restitution. She still giggles when she looks at the cake photos.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! I’ve always been a fan of eating with my hands. I should try this one night with my kids. They’d probably think I should go live in a padded cell!

    • Danielle says:

      This shoot was so fun. The woman with the spaghetti couldn’t wait to dump it on her head. Eating with you hands just makes the food taste better in my humble opinion.

    • Andy says:

      They will fall even in deeper love with you than ever. Do it. And film it. And send it to us. Okay, maybe just enjoy yourself. Ha ha!

    It’s good to see adults being young at heart.

  5. Curtis says:

    The great thing is our son is autistic and was upset that he did not get any peanut butter, he ran and got his own spoon and tried eating it off of his uncles hand. It was such a fun night to shoot these.

  6. Larry says:

    You never know someone till you see them eat!

  7. Jo says:

    Blech! I had a nightmare of a first date with a guy once…he LITERALLY ate his burger in 3 bites! I almost puked right there at the table! I kid-you-not! Never went out with him again… -.-

    as Grown Ups, My Sister And I Have Thrown Mashed Potatoes At Each Other, In A Restaurant With Spoons As Catapults 🙂 At My Three Sisters’ Graduation Party, We Had An All Out Food Fight After The Pig Pickin’. Then A Water Fight. Oh, And Cake Has Been Smashed On Various Adults And Children, BY Adults On More Than One Occasion! It Really Is Fun!
