Paparazzi Princesses- Cinderella

Next installment of Paparazzi Princesses- Disney Princesses Without Makeup!


There's no denying that Cinderella was the ultimate "housewife".  This is fitting considering that Disney's Cinderella was released in early 1950, she was clearly a victim of her time.  So I decided to stay with the 50's theme for her installment.  I found a bunch of ads that reflected the gender roles of the time (inappropriate according today's standards), but couldn't pass up this one as inspiration

This could easily be offensive, that is probably why it caught my eye.  So lets take this as lighthearted as possible.

Being a celebrity, it's only natural that Cinderella would pose for household cleaning products ads... In this case for Bab-O Cleanser with Bleach!

Just because you're a Disney Princess doesn't mean everything is photo shoots and parties.  Cinderella's allergies are really hitting her hard this year.

10 + years of dusting your evil stepmother's mansion can take it's toll on your sinuses ...

Tune in next week for Belle!

Paparazzi Princesses- Ariel

Over the weekend during the football game I got suckered into coloring Disney Princesses with a 6 year old.  I'm not going to lie, I loved it.  A friend of mine started joking while she colored Belle, "You should draw up these princesses without makeup!"

Thank you for the awesome idea Ashlee! She creates the most beautiful natural light photography, please take a minute to have a look at her work! Her website - Sincere Snapshots - click to link

Ok back to the Princesses!  I had 4 hours to stall today so I decided to get started.
I decided to call this series Paparazzi Princesses- Disney Princesses Without Makeup. 

I absolutely LOVE Disney, and I figured I would start off with my favorite Princess Ariel!

Each Princess' "glamor" photo will be as we are used to seeing them, flowing hair, perfect makeup, and a smile of glowing royalty.

Their "paparazzi" snagged photo will be of them being caught in the act of being normal women doing normal things.  Like in Ariel's case ... getting coffee.

I can imagine these photos being in "PEOPLE of the Happiest Place on Earth" magazine.
"Ariel was seen coming out of Starfish Coffee on her way to film a scene in her new movie Love's Undercurrent, coming summer 2014.

I'm going to try and be productive and do one princess a week.  Tune in next week for Cinderella!
