When planning a special princess session, I consult with mom and princess some ideas I have, and the direction I'd like to go. But since this is their special session, I cater to their wants. Gianna and her mom Marlaina gave me full creative control for this session. I do 2 looks for these shoots, and each styled session comes with a custom flower crown that we integrate in the shoot, and that the princess can keep. I had been wanting to do a tropical crown, with beautiful palm leaves as the background. My florist, Blumenhaus, made a beautiful, delicate orchid crown for Gianna for our tropical portrait set. We then went to the beach, where Gianna wore a gorgeous light blue couture princess gown. The gown was stunning, it was made of lace and tulle with elegant bell sleeves, and was the perfect length for twirling. I adorned her hair with a handmade starfish bow. The gorgeous sunset allowed for the perfect lighting. Geese played in the water behind Gianna. She was a perfect princess.
