IRMO, S.C. — A South Carolina photographer is going viral for replicating a swaddled baby photo shoot with a slightly older subject – her 336-month-old friend.

According to WTVT, Stephanie Smith of Southern Stitched Photography said that her high school friend, Nicole Ham, came up with the idea and Smith brought it to life.

Smith shared the hilarious photos on Facebook on Saturday and the post has gone viral with more than 20,400 shares with the caption: “Because your best friend only turns 336 months once.”

The photo featured Ham swaddled in a pink blanket along with a sign that said “336 months old. Loves – Champagne, Hates – Dating in 2018. Go Tigers!”

“From shopping & laying out flowers in the store to see if we had enough to fit an adult to a collaborative effort between myself & Nicole’s mom to swaddle her…We couldn’t keep a straight face!” Smith told WTVT.

The post had been shared over 20,000 times as of Wednesday afternoon and inspired thousands of Facebook users to comment, many tagging the perfect friend or relative for a future swaddle shoot.
