The photographer takes out the elf dust and turns the newborn into a small Disney star
To be a good freshman photographer, you need faith and trust. This is what Karenle learned. That may be the dust of a little elf.
Taylor is the owner of Roseville’s beautiful photography studio. When Disney’s website, Babur, released a clip highlighting her shooting stories and videos, he caught a glimpse of dust.
She said her children inspired her Disney photography project. “I missed wearing a princess dress with the girls,” Taylor said. “This is the idea that I started doing Disney photography.”
Taylor has two daughters and a son, who are 14 years old, 13 years old and 11 years old. She started her career as a freshman photographer 11 years ago.
Tyler released her first Disney Newborn photo in July 2017. The photographs show that six baby girls are under two weeks old and sleep well like Ariel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, Cinderella and Belle.
On Wednesday, Taylor shot her latest Disney costume manufacturer photo, and the three infants showed the adorable couples Anna, Elsa and Christoph.
Taylor does not make money from these Disney shoots, but they help to attract public attention to her studio. Babble’s original articles and video epidemic have earned millions of hits on Babble’s Facebook page and have received attention from national news media.
Babble contracted with Taylor to create a special, Halloween-themed Disney villain photo collection for their site, including infants like Cruella de Vil, Ursula, Jafar, and others.
Shortly after the original princess was filmed, Taylor also photographed a series of disguised Disney princesses, including Tennessee, Pocahontas, and Mulan. Taylor recently took photos of Valentine’s Day. Two newborns dressed up as Mickey and Minnie, which also featured in Babur.
The latest Peter Pan thematic shoot shows that newborns dressed as Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy and Captain Hook.
The most important part of newborn photography is keeping small models safe. Prior to starting her photography business, Taylor was a birth nurse and she said that the safety of the studio was crucial. In the shooting of Peter Pan, Taylor has four assistants on hand to help protect the baby.
Bamboo shoots may also take several hours to prepare. Taylor until 11 nights before shooting the print background and perfect her props, such as Wendy’s four-poster bed and Tinker Bell’s Wizard Hollow Basket. The next morning, the staff arrived at the studio at 6 am and the room temperature of the newborn rose to 90 degrees Celsius at 9 am.
The “Neverland” photo shoot lasted about five hours, which is the standard shooting for newborns shooting four babies. During these five hours, Taylor and her four assistants awakened their newborns because they kept a proper balance of feeding, sleep and comfort so that they could get dressed and put on Disney’s shots.
Despite the hardships involved in these Disney filming operations, Taylor said that the Disney photos were one of the best parts of her job.
“I book 22 appointments per week,” Taylor said. “This is my original idea.”
All of Taylor’s clothing comes from Utah’s costume manufacturer company Sew Trendy, which crafts all of Taylor’s pregnant robes, neonatal clothing and Disney costumes for filming.
Valerie Best, the company’s chief executive, said the company had created about a dozen sets of Disney costumes for Taylor’s new girls and created a handful for the boys.
When Taylor wanted to shoot for Disney, she launched a conference call for a two-week-old baby model on the Belly Beautiful Facebook page. The parents came in with their newborns, and Taylor photographed them for free in exchange for family time.
Taylor’s mother, Heidi Hawkins, who was filmed by Taylor’s first Disney movie, said that Disney’s photos are very special for parents whose babies can participate.
Hawkins said: “As a mother and a person who cannot get enough babies, they are priceless.”
