Boys Can Be Princesses, Too!
Here at Princesscapades Princess Parties we believe that ANYONE can enjoy the magic, beauty & empowerment of a fairy tale princess.
That's why we've decided to produce a series of photos showing little boys dressed as their favorite princess, together WITH their favorite princess! We know there are little boys out there that love these fairy tale characters just as much as the little girls we meet. Our interactions with them have been, for whatever reasons, few and far between, but we see these boys, we know them, and we love them!
However we have also seen boys being told that princesses are "just for girls" or that liking princesses and especially dressing as one somehow makes them weak, inferior or not boys. They're told it's not manly, or macho, or normal. This leads boys to feel ashamed of their interests, confused, sad, and lonely. And that hurts our heart. No child should feel ashamed of the things that bring them joy.
Therefore our goal here is to show these boys and world that it is perfectly acceptable for boys to admire and even dress like princesses. We want to show them it's ok for them to dress up as their heroes, even if that means they're twirling around in a ball gown. Overall, we want everyone to see it's ok to be who you are and like what you like!

Want to participate? Here are the requirements:
This project is looking for boys only! We are aiming to show the world that boys can like princesses too! Don't worry though, we already have ideas other empowering shoots already! So stay tuned!
Boys should be dressed like the princess they are meeting (not a prince or other character!). Yes, we are looking for boys who love wearing princess dresses! Ideally the participant would have their own dress, but we might be able to provide one.
Looking for boys ages 2-13 years old.
We are only doing one child per princess, to allow as many little boys as possible to meet their idols! The only exception is if we find a pair of brothers that want to meet the Frozen sisters together.
Shoot will take place in Chicago, IL, just north of downtown. Exact location will be given to chosen participants only.
It is FREE to participate! However, in exchange for the free photo shoot, any photos or video taken at the shoot will be able to be used promotionally for Princesscapades Princess Parties and/or Fancy Pants Photography for any purpose.
Shoot will last approximately 30 minutes.
Shoot will consist of candid shots or your boy interacting with the princess, as well as some posed shots
Participants will receive 3-5 edited photos once the project is complete.
Photos will be released after the project is complete, likely around mid April, but could be as late as May.
Princesscapades will own the rights to all photos and video taken at the shoot.
