Photographer Transforms Pregnant Women Into Disney Princesses

Brazilian photographer Vanessa Firme specializes in maternity shoots. She turns some expectant mothers into Disney princesses, such as Cinderella, Ariel, and Snow White.

Most mothers will tell you that pregnancy was a magical time in their life, but most pregnant women will complain more about swollen ankles, heartburn, and the discomfort associated with pregnancy. If you would like to feel a little more magical during the time that you are pregnant, then you may want to turn your sights to Brazilian photographer Vanessa Firme.

Vanessa is responsible for some of the more interesting maternity photoshoots that we have seen. She takes those expectant mothers and turns them into Disney princesses. It provides a keepsake that they will treasure and pass on to their children.

The mother starts out dressed up as her favorite Disney Princess. It doesn’t matter if she is The Little Mermaid or Cinderella, the real point is to show off her belly.

Vanessa gave an interview to Insider and said she wanted to show the reality of what would happen to a Disney Princess after the movie ends. “I thought, this must be what happens after ‘happily ever after,’” she said.

In an interview Vanessa provided with The Indian Express, she said the inspiration for these unique photoshoots comes from a maternity dress she received.

It was a custom-made dress from maternity designer Amada Mae designed after the Disney princess, Belle. It was created around the same time that the remake of Beauty and the Beast was released in 2017.
