Charming Portraits of Kids Recreated Popular SNL Characters

Seattle photographer Brandon Hill, who specialises in portraiture, was looking for Halloween costumes for his young son when a lightbulb went off in his head. Photographer has spent seven months re-creating beloved Saturday Night Live characters for his newest photo series called SNL jr., only with kids instead of actors.

As Hill explains to Buzzfeed, “I wanted to dress my toddler son up as Matt Foley”—a character played by Chris Farley—“for Halloween. He’s 2, didn’t know SNL, and preferred being a Minion, so I didn’t push it. In reality, I really just wanted to dress him up so I could photograph the concept.”
