Just when you thought you were beginning to find new meaning to life after Games of Thrones, we're here to plunge you into yet another existential crisis.

After all, who indeed are we now after years of devotion to the hit HBO show, which spanned eight years and 73 episodes?

Newborn babies dressed as Game of Thrones characters are an adorable addition to the considerable fan set of the show.

Atlanta photographer Shannon Leigh has done an amazing job of capturing innocents on the Iron Throne and channelling nicer versions of Daenerys Targaryen.

Look at this little fellow fast asleep on the job. He must have been slaying hundreds of white walkers that day.​

"We were so excited when we had a client ask for a Game of Thrones-themed shoot," Shannon told POPSUGAR.

"My hubby and I run our photography studio together right outside of Atlanta, GA. I'm the photographer, and he does all the other things that need to be done. We are both creative people, so we have fun coming up with these themes, AND we're big GoT fans."

Here's Daenerys in earlier days with a dragon's egg.

Shannon made the costumes while her husband hand-carved the iron throne from wood.

She said, "My hubby made the amazing Iron Throne out of wood - he carved out all the swords and handles, and it's only 24 inches [61cm] tall! We do newborn sessions when they're 6 to 14 days old, so the babies are tiny."

Fortunately all that work inspired four more GoT newborn photoshoots. We have no doubt all those May and June babies will prompt even more in the aftermath of the show's epic wrap up.
