Taken by children’s photographer Christina Angel, the idea for the photoshoot was conceived by her 13-year-old son Anthony.
Anabel, aged five, was of course thrilled when she found out about the idea on the day and discovered that Christina had bought her a Snow White costume to complete the photos.
Although Christina snaps photographs of hundreds of cute kids during the course of her work, she was especially pleased with these photos. Anthony suffers from depression, and his mother was desperate to make him smile.
‘When you have a child who battles with themselves day after day,’ Christina told DIY Photography, ‘there is nothing you wouldn’t pay to see them smile.’
On the day of the shoot, Anthony got dressed in the costume and then surprised little Anabel with her outfit.
They walked to a local park, where they posed for the Disney-themed shots in their cute ensembles.
‘She loved absolutely every second of her photo shoot with her “favorite boy in the world,” ‘ Angel said. ‘I don’t have to tell you all that. I’m sure you can see it on her face in every photo.’
‘Watching their bond as [Anabel] grows melts my heart every day,’ she continued. ‘I am so proud to be their mom, and beyond happy that I’m handy enough with a camera to keep these memories forever.’
