Hilarious Mom Pokes Fun At Celebrity Parents By Recreating Their Photos

LOL.

A California mom is making fun of celebrity parents’ photos by starring in hilarious recreations.

Kate Casey of Newport Beach is a comedian, author and podcast host. She also has four kids under the age of 7 and a wicked sense of humor about the trials of parenting.

Casey started parodying celebrities’ glamorous photo shoots and paparazzi photos several years ago. “I kept looking at pictures of celebrities in magazines and thinking how funny it would be to compare a normal mom versus a celebrity mom or a mother featured in a magazine,” she told The Huffington Post.

“For example, after Jennifer Lopez had her twins, she was featured in an InStyle Magazine photo spread wearing a ball gown holding her newborns,” she added. “After I had my newborn, I was wearing mesh underwear and lounge pants. Nicole Richie was photographed with her new son in an Oscar dress pushing an antique style stroller. Normal moms wear yoga pants and push a Snap-N-Go. New moms forget to brush their hair, let alone get spray tanned and have fake eyelashes.”

Casey posts her side-by-side photos on Instagram, where she has attracted over 10,000 followers. In her hilarious captions, she often ends with “same, right,” which has evolved into the hashtag #sameright.

The mom said she’s started getting requests from friends and fans when they come across a particularly wacky photo. She also credits her friends for helping her bring the parodies to life by lending clothes, snapping the photos, and even placing her in difficult positions.

Casual Saturday. #myfriendshusbandhadtogetmeoutofthisposition #immediatelywenttoachiropractor

Casey’s series is reminiscent of Australian mom and comedian Celeste Barber’s celebrity photo recreations. Though Casey says she’d been posting her photos for awhile before she saw Barber’s, she thinks the Aussie mom’s work is great. “Who doesn’t enjoy a fun photo parody?” she added.

Ultimately, Casey’s goal is to make fellow parents laugh amid of the chaos and stress of their lives. 

“It’s easy to compare yourself to a glamorous celebrity,” she said. “What’s happened to my face? These kids have destroyed my once bikini ready body. I can sort of remember what it was like to have thick and glossy hair. These pictures just highlight that it’s okay to laugh at yourself and the absurdity of airbrushed and staged photos.”
