Last month, Karen Marie, a mom of three and the professional photographer behind Belly Beautiful Portraits, made headlines all over the internet for transforming six beautiful L.O.s into some of the most beloved Disney princesses: Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jasmine from Aladdin. Now, she's done it again!
The 36-year-old has debuted photos of babies dressed as Rapunzel, Mulan, Elena of Elena of Avalor, Tiana from The Princess & the Frog, Pocahontas, and Moana.
"I always knew I wanted to photograph all the princesses!" Karen Marie tells Parents.com. "The first round did so well with media, I wanted the second round to do the same. I put some pretty high expectations and pressure on myself. I'm pretty thrilled with the result. Best of all, the parents of the newborns love the images and are so happy to have taken part!"
Check out the stunning new images.
Karen Marie explained that a jaw-droppingly pretty shoot like this takes a lot of hard work -- and she's so happy that people are recognizing that fact. "I'm loving the fact that others are seeing the art of photography and creative skill that newborn photographers have," Karen Marie tells Parents.com. "So many factors go into these sessions. Set design, wardrobe, an assistant for each newborn -- making sure the babies are safe at all times -- set up and take down. Getting the image right in camera, lighting, editing and editing again plus all the legal releases. I have amazing staff that worked countless hours to help. It's not an easy career, but it is so rewarding!"
In case your favorite princess has yet to be included in Karen Marie's work, stay tuned. The photographer spills: "I have one more shoot planned that will have Elsa, Ana, Merida from Brave, Princess Leia and Alice... even though Alice isn't a princess, she's a favorite of mine!" Can't wait!
