It goes without saying that every girl is a princess to her parents and some mothers and fathers like to go an extra length to prove it.
So when photographer Karen Marie put out an open call for newborn babies to star in a princess-themed photoshoot at her Belly Beautiful Portraits studio in California, you can only imagine how many eager parents responded.
The photographer chose six 2-week-old babies to be the stars of her Disney-inspired photoshoot and the results are absolutely stunning.
The idea was inspired by Marie's love of Disney's "amazing tales of love and heroism." She wanted to incorporate an important part of her childhood into the lives of the newborns with the princess-themed session.
Marie partnered up with Sew Trendy Accessories to create the gorgeous gowns for the babies and then her and the studio staff assigned each baby a princess before they arrived.
"I've had this idea in my head for so long," the photographer and mom of three told KCR3. "My staff and the lady who makes the gowns all sort of came together to create this six sets."

Marie's adorable photographs have garnered worldwide attention and are going viral, which came as a surprise to her and the babies' parents.
"I hope it's because I captured a small portion of the Disney story in each image and that people see the beauty in what I was trying to create," Marie said.
"I love seeing the parents doting over their babies dressed as princesses and their reactions to my finished work," the professional photographer added.
The "difficult" session took about 8 hours to complete, but as we can all see it was definitely worth the effort.
This is just the first of many more Disney-themed photo series that Marie's studio will be releasing. She's already in the talk for plans to dress more babies up as other princesses including Pocahontas, Tiana and Moana.
