Cutest Baby Leprechaun Runs Riot On St Patrick’s Day

With mum helping out with the St Patrick’s Day costume, Utah-based Alan transformed six-month-old Rockwell into one of the little green mythical creatures with hilarious results.

In an adorable series of pictures to mark the March 17 celebration, the baby is seen dressed in green, burying a pot of gold, smiling through a bright orange beard, and even adding the emerald touch to everything around him.

“We almost didn’t have him wear the beard because we couldn’t find anything that looked good,” says Alan.

“When you search for orange beards for babies on Amazon, the results are not awesome. At the very last minute we ended up finding some fluffy fabric that looked perfect.”

“He doesn’t mind the suit, but is not a fan of the beard. He drools a lot and it always manages to get in his mouth.”

Mostly, though, the shoot was a lot more fun – and memorable – than being at the pub, reckons Alan. In one photo, Rockwell is seen holding a pot of gold, sneaking through the front door. In another, he chooses between eating a piece of green broccoli and a candy cane.

“He was very confused as he tried broccoli for the first time,” says Alan, who works as a photographer and art director.

“After licking it like a candy cane for ten minutes I decided to tell him that it needed to be chewed and swallowed.”

Alan’s favorite picture is one of Rockwell spraying green paint on the family dog, which he achieved by editing the green spray paint into the photo later.

“I am pretty meticulous about keeping the magic looking as real as possible,” Alan says.

He also used his photo-editing skills to make it look like Rockwell poured green paint into the washing machine and painted the entire house the springy hue, two things they’d never, of course, let him actually do.

Later in the series, Rockwell is seen burying his pot of gold in some dirt.

“I think he is a little worried that the kids might steal his gold. I didn’t have the heart to tell him they were just chocolates,” jokes Alan.
