What if Disney Princesses were real girls in 2019? I took 10 professional models and transformed them into Disney Princesses for a photoshoot.

These shoots took months to plan but were so fun to shoot. I bought all of the clothes myself and tried to match them well with each princess. It was really a challenge trying to find something that still fit the theme but was still in style (in 2019). I worked with makeup artist Hayley Kassel for most of the princesses and makeup artist Courtney Hagen for Snow White.

Just a few things I wanted to share about this series:

1. The model for Mulan (Serena) is Chinese. We shot her photos in Seoul, South Korea, as she lives there. That’s why you’ll see Korean in the background for one of the photos!

2. Tinkerbell is not a princess, but I still wanted to add her because I love her character.

3. Sophia who portrays Pocahontas is Mexican, French and Native American.

4. I styled every model, with the exception of ‘Jasmine’ (who is a stylist and picked her own outfit!)
