Matt Mac’s son, Ryan, weighed under 3 lbs when he was born 9 weeks premature.

Instead of pitying his son’s frail status, he and his wife used humor to cope with the situation. The two joked around that their baby boy was actually ‘advanced’, not premature – and that sentiment inspired Matt to create a photo series around Ryan doing manly things.

While the infant is pictured doing lots of dangerous stuff for someone his age, the entire gimmick was created using the magic of photoshop.

Ryan would actually be held by his mom during the entire shoot, with the latter being digitally edited in post-production.

‘I always explained how the “danger” all came from photoshop and he was always being held and was never in any harm.’ writes Matt.

I’m curious to see what Ryan thinks of them 18 years from now when he’s actually grown up.’
