Classic Disney Portrait Series

Hey guys!  So for a while now I have been wanting to do some simpler portraits but with the characters from Disney we all know and love!  I was finally able to come up with a style I really love and think fits this theme perfectly!

So I present to you the first image that started the series off, Cinderella!

We were actually shooting Cinderella for a magazine release, which should be out soon, but as soon as I  saw the shots I knew we had to begin the series right then and there! 

Once this image was released I immediately contacted my friend Traci Hines, who most people recognize as the Hipster Mermaid or for her Adorkable clothing line, and asked if she would like to be a version of Ariel for me in this series! She agreed and below is one of her images from that shoot!

I love how she turned out, a true to life version of the Mermaid herself! And the amazing gown was created by my friend JoEllen of Firefly Path!

This series will be on-going, and I will try to do as many characters as I possibly can! They will all be up in the gallery, listed under SPECIAL SHOOTS, then CLASSIC DISNEY! Right now there are images from Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White and the Frozen sisters, Anna and Elsa! Anna and Elsa actually got their own mini set of 7 images <3

I will actually be expanding this style to other series beyond Disney and I can't wait to see where this all leads to! Hope you all enjoy the images as much as I enjoy creating them!

Also, all images from this series in the gallery are available as prints in my print store! Link is in the navigation bar at the top of the website!

 

Here is a quick little timelapse video of my shoot with Traci Hines for anyone who is interested :]
