When I was 6 years old I dressed up as Ariel for Halloween. Red wig, walkable fin and all. She was my favorite princess and there was no convincing me I wasn’t her. I was excited to feel like that experience came full circle as my daughter and I took these Princess Arial photos together.
It’s been quite a while since Lil’ J has done one of her princess photo shoots with me. We planned to do Ariel on our Disney Cruise on the Disney Wonder last December at Castaway Cay but we ended up having a rainy day so we just did her Ariel (with legs) photos on the boat, then while at South Padre Island this summer we finally put her mermaid fin (here’s where I go it) to use at the beach and posed as Ariel.
She didn’t direct me as much this time because she was excited to play in the water, but she was so adorable and trying to be in character. She even brought a dinglehopper with us to the beach but sadly she lost it to a wave in the beginning of the shoot. Are you ready for the biggest photo dump of this series yet? Ok good. Here we go!
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’!
What would I pay to spend a day, warm on the sand?
I have no idea who we will do next. We are thinking of re-doing Cinderella during our Utah trip though she’s outgrown her “glass” slippers since we got them so we’ll have to see how that goes. Neither of us can wait to do Moana (she already has the costume) but I feel like we need a special trip to Hawaii for that one and I’m not sure my husband would go for that.
I think I may start shooting a little video during these and getting some commentary from Lil’ J. Until then leave a comment letting her know what you think! I’ll read them to her and I know she’ll be thankful.
