Child Photographer in Sonora | Crown and Cake’s Princess Elsa | Christine Dibble Photography
I met Justyne last year when she played the part of the bride in the wedding shoot for the Black Oak Casino Hotel Resort. She was the perfect model, and all day I marveled at how calm she was as she went through three entirely different set-ups, including hair and make-up changes, and at how much she really looked like a real life Disney princess. Like Cinderella, she even has the housekeeping skills, particularly in the area of baking. She was half of the brawn behind the wildly successful Cupcake Karma here in Sonora. So it was a genius idea she had when she moved all the way to Washington and opened her own business called Crown and Cake. She dresses up as various Disney princesses and comes bearing some of those delicious cupcakes and entertains kids at birthday parties. I was able to watch her in action when she came for a visit to Sonora and showed up at Twain Harte Park dressed as Princess Elsa. Her friend played the part of Anna. Word was spread around on facebook, and the park was packed when I arrived. I have three boys who are a bit too old for princess watching, but I was on hand to take some photos of Lucy as she met her idol in the flesh. Justyne was magical with all the kids. Watching Lucy as she was mesmerized by Elsa was so much fun. She was more enthralled with Elsa than she ever has been with Santa. Justyne had a meet-and-greet line for photo ops before she read some books to the children. She was warm and loving with each and every child. I may just have to borrow Lucy and throw a party with Crown and Cake when Justyne comes back to visit! I am sure it won’t be long before she is booked solid by those Washington families!
