Today is all about Princess Gabriella Grace Roling and her transformation into a full-blown Princess.
This is the finished product with her personal attendant. At one time she had three people (including one named Gabby) working on her.
I shot 79 images of this process and no I’m not going to show them all. Just the four I have for today. 🙂
I can tell you that watching the excitement and magic in her eyes during the process was one of my most enjoyable moments of the trip. It truly is such a magical place.
This image was taken after she had selected her dress and was waiting her turn for the make over.
There are about 12 personal attendants and each one of them has two specialist to assist with make up and nails. It is quite the sight to behold. Additionally there is a roving photographer who roams the room taking images of each princess and each step of the process.
I made all of these images (at the Magic Kingdom) with the new Nikon Coolpix P1000 camera. This was its first outing so I made a lot of mistakes with it as the learning curve with this camera is considerably different than the DSLRs that I’m used to.
So tomorrow I’m going to write a blog on my first impressions about this unique camera and how it does or does not fit into my work flow.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Jeanne and I were blessed to join Angie, Ben, and the Grand Kids for a magical week at Disney World in Orlando Florida. I have five images for today and over the next several days I will tell the story of the week. So if you are interested please check back tomorrow.
I have nothing but great things to say about Disney World. It is a magical place and seeing through the eyes of our grand children was an amazing and wonderful thing.
Having said that I learned many things during the experience and some things I learned about myself didn’t make me very happy with myself. There are several things I really do not like. I do not like being in a hot and humid environment. I don’t like large crowds of people, I don’t like a lot of walking, I don’t like standing in line, and I absolutely hate flying. Wouldn’t you hate to be married to me or travel with me? I would!
Of course this trip had all of those things. It was usually in the mid 90s and the humidity was through the roof. Always tons of people, standing in lines, and we had to walk a long way most of the time.
We started our journey last Monday morning at 3:30 a.m. as we had a flight out of Dubuque at 5:45 a.m. If I have to fly, I really enjoy flying out of Dubuque especially when you arrive home all you have is a short drive back to your house.
We arrived at Orlando International Airport without incident and took the Disney Shuttle to our Hotel. It was a magnificent hotel with wonderful accommodations and service. We had dinner in one of the restaurants and was visited by Mickey Mouse and his pals throughout the meal. It was so much fun to see Joshua, Gabby, and Austin’s reaction to each character. Of course I had to compete with their Mom so most of the time they were looking at her and saying cheese. 🙂
Back to the room for some conversation and relaxation as we had an early morning breakfast at the castle in the Magic Kingdom.
More to come…
Enjoy your day and be careful.
