When the baby's napping, it's the perfect time for new moms to relax, catch up on sleep themselves and finish up things they can't while baby's awake, right?

Well, for Laura Izumikawa, a photographer based out of Los Angeles, nap time for her 4-month-old Joey Marie Choi means it's time to dress up her daughter as famous pop culture icons and snap some photos.

"My husband and I always loved to dress up for Halloween every year, and it's just in our blood to have fun like that," Izumikawa told ABC News.

Izumikawa has dressed her daughter up as references of everything from the Statue of Liberty to Beyoncé and from Ariel to a sushi chef.
