Mum and daughter’s ultimate Disney dress up takes world by storm

This is the most incredible dress up box.

Forget the squinting in the sun, open-your-eyes-on-the-count-of-three photos we are all unfortunately familiar with, because this mother-daughter duo have nailed the art of the family album.

Photographer Camilla Courts and her darling daughter Layla are the dream team guaranteed to make your cute dress-up snaps suddenly look like a hot mess with their almost uncanny Disney depictions.

The pair, who began recreating picture-perfect scenes from childhood films in 2014, have managed to turn their sweet method of bonding into a social media empire, followed by almost 35,000 people in just a few short years.

With Cinderella, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland and Tinkerbell all in the duo’s sartorial line-up, it seems there’s no look they can’t pull off.

But of all the many characters she’s portrayed, playing The Little Mermaid’s Ariel beside her mum as villian Ursula was her favourite; it meant the two were together in front of the lens for a change.

“Every once in a while I like to get in on the fun, and I think being the villain is way more fun than wearing the crown,” Camilla tells The Huffington Post.

Camilla, who usually snaps her magical portraits where they live in British Columbia, Canada, says the experience has done wonders for her daughter’s confidence.

“She’s a very shy child, and I see her light up when she gets into costume,” she says. “She’s gained a lot of confidence since we started the project and has really come out of her shell.”

“It’s been truly magical.”
