“Once Upon a Time” — A Fairy Tale Themed Baby Shoot

I’m not too keen on newborn/baby photo shoots (they mostly look the same to me and some of them can be downright creepy), but I’m all game when they’re super creative. (See: Kristin & Kayla, Mila’s Daydreams, and Baby Arthur.)

The latest series of baby photos to make its social media rounds has been that of photographer Wendi Riggens, whose fairy-tale themed shoot of 9-month-old Maddie has her placed in scenes and outfits from some of Disney’s most popular films. Take a look, and be ready to coo:

Riggens notes,

I never imagined just how incredibly adorable and amazing the images would turn out! She spent weeks and weeks searching for the perfect pieces for the shoot, and we spent two hours the day before setting up sets and discussing strategy. At 9 months old, most babies don’t have an incredibly long attention span, and we knew we would have to work quickly to ensure that Maddie was happy and that we got the shots we wanted.

The day of the session went better than we ever could have planned. Maddie didn’t mind the non-stop clothing changes, and seemed entertained by all the sets! She especially loved the “big bad wolf” and soap bubbles! And then, at the very end, she fell asleep, giving us one last shot to wrap up this perfect session, a shot we hadn’t even planned on and threw together very last minute!
