Love Disney Princesses? These sleeping beauties are the sweetest thing you'll see all day—and great inspiration for your baby's newborn photo shoot!


As a mom of three girls and a huge Disney fan, I was simply awe-inspired by a recent photo shoot featuring six baby princesses, including Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jasmine from Aladdin.

The sweet-as-a-princess images were captured by Karen Marie of Belly Beautiful Portraits in Roseville, California.

I love the attention to detail! Just look at the little stuffed animals placed on each sleeping baby princess's chest.

The mom of three, who also designed the gorgeously intricate sets for the photo shoot, told The Huffington Post about her inspiration for the magical images, "The amazing tales of love and heroism have always been an inspiration to me, and now I see it inspiring my girls."

Each of the adorable mini-costumes was created by Sew Trendy Accessories.

I love how each baby is sleeping and none-the-wiser for her portrait. It just adds to the sweetness of the shoot. But could there be anything more precious than a newborn baby princess anyway?

Meanwhile, it kinda works that Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are snoozing!

How beautiful are those pink peonies?


We love Cinderella on a sweet silvery pumpkin!
