  • A Cinderella Fairy Tale

    My daughter’s name may be Aurora, but this last weekend she put on the shoes and dress of another beloved Disney princess for a fun shoot with her friend, Charlie.  With a dress copying the look of the live-action movie, and a prince costume to match, we set out for the campus of UW for…
