Jessica Kobeissi is a fashion and portrait photographer based in Detroit, Michigan. For one of her latest projects, she took 10 professional models and transformed them into Disney princesses to show how everyone’s favorite characters would look like as real girls in 2019.
The photographer says she bought all of the clothes herself and tried to match them with each princess. “It was really a challenge trying to find something that still fit the theme but was still in style (in 2019),” says Jessica. “I worked with makeup artist Hayley Kassel for most of the princesses and makeup artist Courtney Hagen for Snow White.”
Jessica gave some comments on her creative choices:
“1. The model for Mulan (Serena) is Chinese. We shot her photos in Seoul, South Korea, as she lives there. That’s why you’ll see Korean in the background for one of the photos!
2. Tinkerbell is not a princess, but I still wanted to add her because I love her character.
3. Sophia who portrays Pocahontas is Mexican, French and Native American.
4. I styled every model, with the exception of ‘Jasmine’ (who is a stylist and picked her own outfit!)”
