Yesterday I had the pleasure of modeling in a photography session for Project Mermaids at Magnolia Plantation. Being that I grew up in the era of The Little Mermaid, to say this was a dream come true for me would be an understatement. I lived and breathed Ariel as a young girl and even as an adult have dressed up as Ariel for Halloween (sail dress, more pictures to come soon from this years rendition, as a couple!). The hubby and I went to Disney World in 2013 and I turned into a shy kid all over again when I got my picture with Ariel.
So, two years later, I get to be the mermaid! I am not sure when I will receive the photos and then I will need to pick my favorite for the photographer to fully “mermaidify”. As soon as I get my final mermaid print I will share it with all of you! For now, enjoy the sneak peek they posted on Instagram yesterday below:

(It is teeny tiny, but I’m the one in front of the lake, 6th mermaid.)
It was hard work being a mermaid (legit mermaid tails = HEAVY!) and I definitely felt awkward 90% of the time, but based on a few behind the scenes shots I was able to see, I am confident that there will be at least one shot that makes me look like the gorgeous mermaid I always dreamed I could be!
