When we took Disney princess photos around Salt Lake City, Eva had a great time but she immediately started asking when we would be taking Frozen photos. And she kept asking. And asking. And asking.

So you can imagine how excited she got when we were at Walmart and we found dresses for Princess Anna AND Queen Elsa in the toy aisle! It has been really hard to track them down.

Eva’s costume collection is epic and I love taking photos of her when she’s dressed up. She’s so into the characters at this age, so putting on a costume totally changes her little personality. When she’s Princess Anna, she’s feisty and jumpy and she never holds still. As Queen Elsa, she stands a little taller, walks a little more slowly, and constantly uses her hands to “do the magic”. Since the characters are so different, I decided we needed to do two totally separate locations for each. We took Princess Anna up to Silver Lake for a little hike, sparkly shoes and all, and then we headed out to the Bonneville Salt Flats, flooded from a fresh rain fall, for Queen Elsa.

These photo sessions are my favorite. I love the trash-the-dress feel to them, like we’re doing something crazy by bringing the costumes out when it isn’t Halloween. Eva was so delighted when I let her get into the salty water in her Elsa gown (and glass slippers!). Play clothes are play clothes, right? I mean, it’s one thing to be the snow queen at home in your living room, but outside under the moonlight with nothing but blue for miles? Perfect.

    These are amazing on so many levels. And I’m not going to lie, the first few had me wishing you’d had her spread her arms wide a la “The Hills are alive,” as that setting screams “Sound of Music” to me! You have a beautiful little girl-both inside and out!

      I can so see that – especially the twirling!

    I got a Sound of Music vibe too in the Anna pictures! These are fantastic! I REALLY want to take dress up themed pictures like this too!
