Behind the Scenes: Fairytale Cinderella & Belle Photoshoot

The Disney dynasty (Cinderella, Belle, Rapunzel, Ariel), my daughter lip-syncs their songs, crayon fills their likenesses, and stores their signatures.  But I want Coco to be the heroine of her own fairytale.  Trusting that she is brave and strong and beautiful.  I want her to be messy and make mistakes, to love her scabby knees as much as her glossed lips.  So I joined the team of Red Poppy Photo and Beth Allen Art, fellow moms and artists, to art direct and stage a photoshoot at the Uptown Plaza Shopping Center (currently under renovations) to showcase two petite princesses in My Little Jules princess-worthy collection from Tutu Du Monde and Joyfolie.

In summary a few tips:  1) Look for fluid, breathable fabrics.  2) Don’t fear the skirt.  It’s possibly cooler and just as comfortable as shorts.  3) Tie, cuff, and adapt your all-season clothing to keep it fresh for the hottest months of the year.  4) Finally, add accessories – hats, headbands, jewelry – all of these add interest without heat.
