The results were a royal achievement.
“The main idea was to portray the partnership between a true mother and daughter as the same princesses a generation apart to show the similarities, the functions which are alike,” Ross told A Plus. Indeed, the youthful glow of every princess juxtaposed with all the elegance in their mature counterparts produces a gratifying feeling of continuity thanks to the bodily traits shared by the models, but also a beautiful contrast. The stunning costumes worn in the shoot were given by Nephi Garcia, a designer acclaimed for his assortment of Disney-inspired children’s outfits.
