I'm just a Daydreamer...



Daydream-land is still missing Mila, who is more anxious to chew toys with her brand new pearl teeths than sleep, but that's not the reason why this blog is changing.

I love you people,

When I started this blog I didn't expect this to happen. This was my funny little hobby with my constantly sleeping newborn and this blog was for my family and friends, especially for those who lived in long distance.

One night, literally one night, this blog was all over the world web news. Now in few months almost 3 million visitors have seen my little blog and I have received so beautiful, heart warming and touching e-mails and comments from daydream-fans, mothers & fathers all over the world. Thank you. I still can't reply to all of your e-mails and comments, but we try to read all. (And I've long list for my this year special christmas e-card)

...well, there are people who ain't that lovable...

Everything hasn't been a pure bliss, because I have found so many copyright violations and the last drop was that point when I found my own baby animated in banner ads. 

As an advertising professional I have to ask from designers: if you don't have a brain, don't you have at least some heart?

I really really hope that none of the parents have to find their own child pictures used without their permission. Maybe I'm just a daydreamer myself when I've been in a good faith with people in the internet. I love how people can connect through it. I've found help, friends and maybe real future friends too from it. But of course there's also bad guys here, like in the real world too.

Help me to protect my photos

Keep e-mailing me if you suspect that some one is using my photos without my permission.
I will do everything to protect my child pictures as I protecting my child too. I can tell you right away that there is never ever going to be "Mila's Daydreams" -advertising campaigns for any kind of products or baby brands. Advertising agencies all over the world have been asking these pictures and I've said no to all requests. So if you find ads, sponsor calendars, competitions, banners what so ever with my pics, it is copyright infringement. Just let me know and of course boycott that kind of advertisers. If they can cheat a photographing mother, they sure will cheat their customers too.


Here's thumbnails of Mila's Daydream pictures. All pictures Copyright ©Adele Enersen 2010

If private person has blogged about my photos before and used couple (1-4) of pictures (with my watermarks) to illustrate that with copyright marks and link back to my blog, that's ok. Of course it would be nice to remove those too, but at least, don't re-publish and spread them anymore. Please. 

Then there are all those people who have uploaded more than 10 or all content of my blog photos to their own galleries, blogs or webpages. Some have even removed my copyright mark or put their own in there, claiming that they have rights for my photos. That's another serious copyright infringement. They should be removed immediately or otherwise I will take all the necessary legal actions.

Report misusage or contact me trough e-mail from my blogger profile.

There will still be more Daydreams

So, no more Mila's Daydream pictures in the blog. I wanted to keep that first one there, because it means everything to me. The flowers she is picking are from that bouquet I got in hospital after giving birth. Well, I knew this was going to end some day anyway. I will continue taking photos every now and then, while Mila is still a baby, but this time I won't publish them at my blog, just to avoid misusage and violation. But this ain't the end of this blog either. I still want to be in touch with you people and share something from my maternity leave with you. So maybe this blog is going to be more like "While my baby is taking her nap, I try to blog about something." And sure there's going to be some creative things in the future too, let's see what we can come up. Maybe Mila is going to take pictures of me, or maybe I'll write some haiku's about her first words, or maybe there's going to be some other creative outbursts from my not-so-desperate housewife life. Mila is a great muse for sure.

Mila doing her favourite thing

The Good News:  The Book!

So many of you lovely human beings have been asking me to make a book of Daydreams. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I believe you people have made my deepest dreams come true, because I'm happy to tell you that my first daydream-illustrated book is going to be published in all the english speaking countries in 2012 by Balzer+Bray. The working title is: "When My Baby Dreams". There is always a story behind these pictures I've been taking and I'm more a storyteller than a photographer. I would be so happy if people would read these books to their kids as a bedtime or naptime stories and kids could see nice dreams when they sleep. In the future I will definitely tell more book news in the blog. Yay!


Never forget, everything is possible in the dreams. Keep daydreaming!


With Love,
Adele&Mila

I am so sorry for the misuse and outright abuse of your photos and will make sure to keep an eye open for what may pop up online and notify you. Like many others I'll be waiting for the book, which would be the perfect gift to any new mother :)

    With bright blessings to you and Mila. May your dreams be vivid...

  7. Can't wait for the book. So sorry that the actions of a few inconsiderate people have forced you to do this. I love your work and your amazing creativity. The love that you have for your daughter always shines through in your pictures.
    She's gorgeous, and as a first-time Mum myself (of a wee girl who is not quite as good a sleeper as Mila! - yawn!) I really love seeing all the new things you come up with.
    All the best for your future.

  8. I very sorry this have happened to you. This is the exact reason why I don't put pics of my baby on the web (well this and the fear of pedophilia). I cheer your creativity and courage and wish you good luck with the book (I'll be definitely buying it to my kid).
    I'll be missing to see Mila's pictures....

    Best of luck in all your pursuits. Anxiously awaiting the book.

  13. Adele, that is terrible. I saw your site almost from the beginning and have really enjoyed logging in and seeing what Mila is up to! I really hope the book goes well, and I know this family will have a copy!

  14. Such a metaphor for our sweet babies growing up, and being hit by the Real World, beyond our protection and against our wills. . .

    Thanks for sharing your sweet photos while you could.

    I am so sorry for what has happened to you. I will post you if I see any of your pictures going around and I suspect it is without your permission.
    On the other hand I am waiting impatiently for this book.
    all the best,

  25. Adele, it is terrible that you feel you are unable to go on with posting Mila's daydreams because of certain people who have violated copyrights. It has been great to follow Mila and discovered her extremely talented mummy! All the best with the upcoming book and for this blog's new start. Bises xx

  30. dear adele, first thank you for sharing mila's daydreams with us! sorry about people who don't care about privacy and have obviously no respect. but it is great you make a book of it. I will have a look if it is possible to get it here in germany. for future I'm looking forward to your haikus and everything - you seem to be a very lovely person and it is nice to "know" you! love, katrin

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, I'm so sad... And also a little angry because I thought this things happened only in Spain (we, shameless people) but I see that this bad habit of stealing another people's work on the internet is widely extended throughout the whole world.

    If I see you work anywhere, published without your permission, you can be sure that I'll write to you telling you where and who.

    Anyhow, I'll keep visiting this blog, because everything I've seen here has fullfill me with peace, sweetness and made me smile.

    And... Congratulations for your book !!!! Tell us when it comes to light, we'll try to buy it at amazon even if our language is not english (and talking about that, I hope I didn't write anything bad, english es not my language and sometimes it gets hard to write about feelings so that english sponken people can understand).

    Best regards and kisses, for you and also for Mila.

  32. Спасибо вам за прекрасные и трогательные фотографии. Очень, очень жаль, что их больше не будет, они помогали видеть красоту и нежность этого мира. Удачи вам с книгой! :)

  33. My best advice is to restrict the blog access with a username and password and give it only to your family and friends...that's what I've done with mine anyway, after I started receiving unpleasant comments from strangers.
    Many many thanks for sharing those pics with us, as you a new mum myself I really enjoyed them and wish you all the best to both of you!

  34. good for you!!

    You need to be very wary of ORKUT stealing pics btw.. there's a group on FLICKR about it if you look for it!

    Good luck in the future and I will be coming back to see what else you have for us!

  35. I loved the beautiful pictures you showed of Mila, they always made me smile :-)
    I'm so sorry you're not going to show new pictures here, but I totally understand why!!!
    But the news about a book is wonderful! Can't wait!!!

  36. Thankyou for the wonderful pictures of Mila. I am so sorry that people have used them for purposes other than the delight you wanted to share. I will be back to see what else you have in mind.

  37. First, thank you for sharing these beautiful moments.
    I am sorry to hear that a few people have taken advantage of you and your little Mila and violated your trust. It has been such a treat watching your beautifully composed photos. You are an artist, truly talented and so creative. I wish you and Mila all the best in this world, and good luck with your book!

  38. Your blog reminds me being tender and relax when I am struggling in parenting. I love Mila's picture and will wait for the book!

  39. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures of your lovely little dreamer over the past few months. Enjoy the transition from baby to toddler, it's very exciting! As a fellow mum of girls, I've enjoyed them so very much. Best of luck, I look forward to the book.

  40. Thank you for bringing us such beautiful pictures of your beautiful daughter :)
    I wish you all the best with the book.

    I am very sad that there will be no more Daydreams here, but I completely understand and you have my full support!

  41. Hei!
    En olekaan aiemmin kommentoinut, mutta blogiasi olemme koko perheemme voimin seuranneet ihastuksella! Lapset ja jopa mieheni ovat aina halunneet nähdä uudet päivitykset ihanasta prinsessasta:) Ymmärrän ilman muuta päätöksesi, mutta jään kyllä kaipaamaan kauniita kuviasi, jotka toivat aina hymyn huulille:)

    Pitänee yrittää saada kirjasi meillekin. Jään toki mielenkiinnolla seuraamaan blogiasi edelleenkin.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you for such a beautiful glimpse into Mila's Daydreams - your photos always put a smile on my face...and even a tear in my eye. You have a gorgeous wee girl and it is just so sad that there are such greedy, horrible people in this world who would exploit the innocence of a baby (and her mother) to promote themselves and their products.
    My children & I will miss your delightful story and we will be lining up for the book for sure!
    You are a very special mama

  43. I haven't commented here before, but wanted to say that I'm sorry that people have done such things that warrant this happening. I support you absolutely, but it makes me sad that people would do that.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and very creative photos of your darling daughter. I'm so sorry that people have not shown you the respect you and Mila deserve. You have my fullest support in what you have decided to do. As parents we want to protect our children from eveything possible. I wish you all the best in your continued motherhood with Mila and I'm sure she will keep you entertained and inspired as she continues to grow and change. I lookforward to seeing your book.
    All my love and support, from me and my 3 darling little ones xxx

  45. I am so sorry to hear this has happened. Your pictures have brought such joy to so many people - my girls aged 10 and 12 love them. What you did was beautiful and worthwhile and worth the risk. We all know these photographs are yours and yours alone. I am so glad that you are publishing a book though - you deserve the recognition. Thank you. God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can't believe this. How bullsh*it is that someone dares to take your pics without permission? I will do my best to keep my eyes open and if someone gets caught...I will certainly remind the person about copyrights and about the cold fact, that Santa will not bring any presents to naughty people. And if one has been really, really naughty, Santa will propably "recall" last year's presents also ;)

    Hugs to you honeys and yes, can't wait the book ♥

    ReplyDelete
  47. It is such a shame that you have been put in this position but I totally understand why you have to act in this way to protect your beautiful daughter. I was only a latecomer to Mila's daydreams but having had my first child, my own beautiful daughter, three months ago I have loved following Mila's latest daydreams. I am looking forward to your book in 2012 and I am sure Mila will love to look back on her daydreams in years to come.

  55. So sorry about this, and I really hope I get the chance to buy the book when it comes.
    Love your pictures. And have used one of them in my blog, but with your adress, your name.
    You deserve the recognition for your own work.

    ReplyDelete
  62. So sorry honey! My children and I will truly miss the beautiful pictures of Mila... such a treat to see. Add me to your list of viewers who would love to purchase a book one day. You have inspired my creativity... inspired people to see the world another way... to take a look at the little things and wonder what's beyond.

    Enjoy your wonderful maternity leave... you'll find Mila won't stay young for very long... but you'll have such beautiful treasures to remember the wonderful moments of her childhood... your time with her. I took photograph after photograph of my baby when she was born... and shockingly she graduated from High School this year (though I suppose, I whould have been more shocked had she not!)

    Enjoy each moment my friend. I'm thinking of you and your journey... as all mom's out there know just how wonderful it is... so full of daydreams.

  63. I will miss little Mila and her dreams! Sad that you have to end it, but the reasons are completely understandable and I agree with your copyright worries. Being the creative person you are I am sure you will find another way to express it while protecting your child's interests.
    Wonderful news about the book. Eagerly looking forward to it.

We will definitely buy your book when it comes out. Thanks so much for all of the fun, creativity that we have enjoyed through your work here! Sad to see it end but I hope that all of your new ventures continue to be dreams come true. xo

  72. This is sad news but I understand completely why you are doing this. I will miss seeing little Mila growing up and going on her little adventures! I will be keeping my eyes peeled for your book. You have created something beautiful for your little girl to look back on when she has grown up.

  74. Wow - I was just going to pop by your blog and ask permission to use one image in order to talk about your blog as one that I follow - with a link, but now I'm a little terrified to ask! Oh wait - I see you said that's okay - but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm a graphic designer - so I absolutely hear what you're saying about copyright infringement - it's terrible, and if I see anyone claiming your unique work as their own - you can bet I would let you know asap. Anyhoo - I'll wait to hear from you before adding a photo to my draft post.

  76. Voi hirmuinen harmitus!! Kuvasi ovat olleet ihan itkettävän herkkiä ja suloisia. Ihmiset on niin törkeitä... mutta sellaista on netin ihmeellisessä maailmassa, valitettavasti.

    MUTTA: ehkä tämä kaikki piti tapahtua jotta sait suuren haaveesi toteutettua: kirjan. Kuvasi ovat ihania satuja, ihanaa että saat ne esille lastenkirjoihin!! Kaikella on tarkoituksensa, uskoisin niin. Onnea ja menestystä ja kaikkea hyvää tulevalle!!

  77. So sad to hear that we can no longer see your amazing creativeness but as i am also a mother myself. i completely understand why you made this decision and i'm 100% on your side.

    Great news about the book and even though it's still 2010, i'm sooo excited about it!
    best of luck for your future and wishing you many happiness to you and your family.

  78. Dear Adele,

    Firstly, I would like to sincerely thank you for sharing all these beautiful but also personal moments of your motherhood, with us. You have an amazing talent, a charisma, as we say here in Greece, which has brought many people of all ages and places a little bit closer. You've also inspired many of us. So, thank you for everything.

    Later on, I'm deeply sorry for the outcome of your movement, but also understand that you only want to protect your little princess. Even though I will miss your imaginative photographs and the way they made me smile, the purity of your efforts comes first. I trust that we are all going to support you no matter what you decide to do and keep visiting your blog.

    Lastly, you can't imagine how glad me and me mother both are, that you are going to publish a book! I hope it will someday come here, in Greece, as well, because we would love something like this.

    I apologize for the big answer, but being one of these silent - observers of your work, I feel like I need to thank you appropriately!

    Take care of your precious Mila and continue being such an amazing mother!

    Love, Christianna.

  80. I am a first-time Mom to a 9-month-old; I looked upon your creativity with so much joy (and jealousy) .. in my mind I could easily put my own baby's face into the photo and wonder what she too is dreaming. I am sad that this has come to an end. Boo for those unscrupulous people for stealing your work...

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thank you soo much fpr this wounderful blog that has been and I promise to follow you and Mila even without your creative and heartwarming pictures.
    It´s scary what people can do with other peoples photos but with internet you will never be shure of whos steeling from you. I think you do the right thing.
    I will be on lookout for your book and promise to read it to my son.

  85. Thank you, thank you, thank you.... I've enjoyed every single picture of Mila. You have inspired me to do the same with my daughter, who will be here any day now. I completely understand and it's really sad we won't be able to see more, but protecting your baby girl is number one priority. I look forward to getting your book, so that I may read it to my son and daughter. Also looking forward to what's coming new on your blog. Blessing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm saddened that people have taken advantage of your amazing work and I totally understand your need to protect the images, both to protect your beautiful little girl and to protect your copyright. While I'll miss seeing more of your amazing creative pictures I can see that you're doing the right thing.

    I'll certainly still be reading and look forward to seeing what other directions your creativity will take this blog. And I'm very happy to hear that you're putting together a book and will be eagerly awaiting its release.

    Cheers!

  89. I've not commented here before, but I felt I had to after reading your post. I am so, so sorry that people are doing this with your images. It's disgraceful.

    I'll miss Mila and her day dreams but I am glad you are publishing a book and will definitely buy a copy to help my two little ones dreams.

    I look forward to the new direction your blog is taking.

  90. I guess you had no choice! I'm sad I won't be seeing any more of your wonderful pictures of your sleeping beauty but I'm totally sympathetic with the motive.
    I'll be looking forward for the book and hope it will be sold on-line too, so I can buy it from Portugal, where I live.
    Wish you and your family the best of lucks and I don't have to hope the book will be a success... because I'm sure it will be!

  93. SUCH a shame that you've had to stop posting these photos, they were always a wonderful pick me up when I was at work missing my little boy - they always made me smile.

    I really hope you carry on blogging, I would miss you if you didn't!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Like everyone, I love your blog. From the time I first came across it through Blogger's Blog of Note, each of your posts brought a smile on my face. It is indeed sad that I won't be able to see more of Mila's day dreams. :( At the same time I will be waiting to read what you will put next. :)

  97. Such a sad statement of the world today when the best and brightest things have to be tarnished by the worst kinds of people. I will miss seeing your little one's daydreams. You are so very talented and I thank you for sharing that small part of her life.

  101. Dear Adele!

    You are TOTALLY right! Unfortunately there are people that don´t respect other people! It´s SO sad! You MUST protect Mila in all aspects! I support you and your words!!! Regards from Brazil!

  102. Unfortunately any artist that puts their work on the net, is going to get their work stolen. I've been an artist for over 20 years (Digitally) and it happens to me all the time. So what I ended up doing was putting huge watermarks across my work. You can just drop the opacity on it and they can't "remove" it. Yes it's distracting, but if you can find the right opacity balance and design, it will not take away from your work.

    I'm sad to see this series end. :) But I also have a 9 month old and know that they don't sleep that much anymore.

    Good luck to you Mama!

  104. So sorry you've had to go through this with your photos. At least it really does show how amazing and creative your photos are of Mila. The book sounds awesome! I can't wait for it to come out. I'll be looking for it for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  105. "Oh nooo!" was my first thought when I realized that you had removed all of the photos. But then "Yay!!!" when I read that you're gonna publish a book with all of the pictures. I'm so looking forward to 2012 :).

    Adele, you're a great, protective mother, and your decision to remove the photos was totally right. It's just sad that you had to. Some people are just... *sigh* I don't even have words for that. But it's got no use if we fret about it. All you can do is take legal action. I wish you all the best and the strength to hang on. Remember: You've got a thankful and supportive fanbase, and that's what those people NEVER will have :).

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for putting a smile on my face with each and every single picture, even if my day was crap.

  106. While I am so sad not see any more pics of your sweet baby sleeping I COMPLETELY understand where you are coming from.

  115. Good for you for standing up for your amazing talent. I sincerely hope there is no negative backlash for your sweet baby. I hope that you will be able to do something fun for JUST you during nap time. I know that with a 14 month old it is very hard to have any me time. I too blog during me time. But I also nap, bake, call friends, etc, so I hope you do something creative that you enjoy as much as photographing a very sweet child!

  116. I'm so sorry that you had to change things because of dishonesty and theft of your pictures. Those of us who love seeing your beautifully creative pictures of your adorable little girl lose, too, but of course you need to protect her and your property. Thank you for sharing her with us for so long, and I hope that you have success with whatever you choose to do next.

All the very best with your book.

  149. I can't exactly recall where I found your blog, but when I did, I was instantly a fan. I loved when it popped up on my RSS feed and just marveled at all the thought and beauty behind your pictures. I look forward to still following you and your book being published - I'm sure both will be just as great as your previous work.

I love your site and your photos always make me smile. I stay at home with my 11 month old son, and since I discovered your site, it's always nice to have a little smile to put things in perspective and make my mind wander, wondering what my little guy is dreaming about. All the best to you and I look forward to seeing what is next for you.

  162. Oh congrats on the book!

    I will miss seeing the photos; but, I totally understand. Your child comes first. ALWAYS.

    It makes me mad that people would do such a thing; but, there are always a few bad apples among the many good ones.

    I will look forward to the changes. Sometimes, changes are good. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  163. I'm so sorry to hear about this! I'll miss seeing the amazing photos, your daughter is such a cutie and you are an amazing artist. I also will definitely be looking for and buying the book when it comes out. If you should decide to continue to photoblog, look into a private invite-only format which should give you more control. I am expecting twins, and lots of parents of multiples (especially higher order multiples) have private blogs so that people don't misuse photos of their kids since many people are fascinated by quads, quints, etc. No matter what you do, I wish you the best of luck and thanks again for the lovely images!

    ReplyDelete
  164. People who live in countries where we do not speak English, we also want to read the book.

    Would you extend that timeframe.

    Much love to Mila and you.

  172. Way to go! so happy for your book deal, you deserve it! Those backdrops are amazing! I think it's amazing you have all that stuff laying around your house. I hope you continue taking pictures of her when she sleeps, they are soo precious even as they get older!

    ReplyDelete
  173. That's terrible news, but I understand. Thanks for all your hard work. My first baby was born in June and your blog provided some bright spots on some very hard days. Can you start a mailing list or something to notify us when the book is out? 2012 seems so far away!

    ReplyDelete
  174. We are so sorry that you were forced to make that decision, which we completely understand. We have a post in our blog about your amazing pictures, with a link to the clip and to your blog, because we wanted to share with our readers the wonder of Milla's dreams. We will be waiting for the book, perhaps you can let us know when and where it will be for sale, and we can then share for everyone to buy.

  175. i have absolutely LOVED your pictures. i too have little one only a few months old, also have a toddler. i love the creativity you have had with her dreams. it has made me want to do the same with my baby.
    i am so, so, so sorry you have had such a negative impact put against you. you are so wonderful to have shared your precious baby with the world. it is unbelievable someone would take advantage of that with out your permission. i am sad to see the photographs end, however. i support your decision as i would never want the same thing to happen. i do hope you will take the necessary legal action against those that have infringed on your copyright. it makes me sad that someone would copy your child's photo and claim as their own and to use with out your knowledge.
    God bless you! and God bless Mila too!

  192. I understand your decision. That is sad that you were forced to do this. You shadowed many professional photographers, because (I believe) you followed your heart. There is so much love in your photos that it heat up our hearts when we try to imagine what your little girl was dreaming about.

    I would just Thank You, for sharing so much emotions so openly.

    All the best, for you and little baby.

  193. Well, as one who found you early on, I shall miss you. I blogged about you and certainly people fell in love with Mila's dreams. I wish you well and look forward to her return.

  194. As a photographer, I completely understand your decision. It's downright vicious what some people will do to steal an image.

    I can't wait for your book, and I hope you continue photographing Mila's daydreams and maybe come out with a whole series! :)

  195. I feel as though I've lost a friend. But, having said that, I totally understand your frustration and your choice!
    It just takes a few idiots to ruin a good thing!
    Wishing you and your family the best - and looking forward to book!! :)
    Hugs,
