There’s something special about Princess Tiana. She’s got spunk, she’s got drive, and she’s Disney’s first black princess. I really wanted to do these pictures justice so it’s taken us some time to decide exactly where to take these photos.

Lil’ J thought it should be near water, and we had a three-day weekend so we went to Zilker park late morning (definitely not my ideal time to shoot) and took photos before going on a little train ride and playing on the playground with her brother and aunt.

One o my favorite aspects of this shoot was the dress. It’s the Deluxe Tiana Dress from the Disney store, that is no longer on sale. I stalked ebay and eventually found one second hand! You can occasionally find it or similar versions on Amazon*.

Since Lil’ J does her own posing and makes most of the decisions for these shoots, I thought she should have more of a say in the text that goes with this photo share. So I did a little Q&A with Lil’ J about her transformation into Princess Tiana.

1. Q: Why do you like Princess Tiana?

A: I like Tiana because she cooks and cleans.

2. Q: When did she clean?

A: *singing* Allllll moooooost thereeeeeeee!

3. Q: Oh, when she was cleaning her new restaurant, ok. Why did she want a restaurant? 

A: Because it was her wish.

4. Q: What is your wish?

A: To dance with a prince like Charlotte. No wait, actually to dance on stage and to sing. Either that or be a cheerleader.

5. Q: What was your favorite picture from this shoot?

A: The one where I was on the wall thingy and sassy like Tiana. That one. (This one)

6. Q: What does Princess Tiana teach you about dreams?

A: You don’t just have to wish on a star. You have to work hard to make your dreams come true.

It is so fun to see how she perceives the world. I was also noticing today that she is changing so much. Her little face is beginning to look like a young lady.

Love this! So incredibly sweet.

Absolutely LOVE this. Pinned it! Lil’ J is so awesome and Tiana is my favorite! 🙂 xo

I wanna be like you when I grow up, lol! These came out great!

These are amazing! I think you both did Princess Tiana justice. These are my favorite.

I’d love to do a series like this with my son but my pictures don’t come out that great.

Tiana is my absolutely favorite princess- this dress is beautiful.

Love, love, love! Tiana is one of my favorite princesses. You and Lil J make such an amazing mommy-daughter team. Also, Moo has enjoyed reading these Disney Princess posts and seeing all of the pictures. She wants to do her own princess shoot now.

Aww thanks Mama! You two should DEFINITELY do some princess shoots! They’re so fun, and it’s great photography practice! I expect a report! 🙂
