Dancing the Night Away

What is a photographer to do when her son goes to prom?  Take prom photos of course!  I want this blog to be just as fun as the photo session was so...I think I'll turn it into a fictional story!

Once upon a time, there was a BEAUTIFUL queen that LOVED to dance!  She danced EVERYWHERE...in her house, in the yard, in the school, even in the grocery store!  So naturally when the high school prom arrived, she wanted to go.  But first, she had to find a HANDSOME king to go with her.  She searched high, she searched low, but a king was not anywhere to be found.  Just as she was about to give up on her dream of attending the prom with a king, she had a sudden idea - she could go with her good friend!  After all, he is a king.

 The queen found her king - which was her good friend!

The king and queen were making their evening plans, when an evil prince decided to be sneaky and show up.  Hmmm...what is the evil prince planning??

 The evil prince is spying on the king and queen!

The evil prince decides to crash the king and queen's evening by inviting some fellow princes and princesses!  However, the plan backfires when he realizes that the king and queen have a motto that they live by, "The more the merrier."  Naturally, the king and queen welcome the other party goers.

Everything was going great until the sky began to change...and the birds stopped chirping...and it seemed as if the world just stopped!  Suddenly, the ground started rumbling!  The thundering sound that accompanied the rumbling was getting louder each second!  What was happening?? 

As the group of friends were discussing this situation, IT suddenly appeared!  A GIANT T-REX!! 

 OH NO! 

OH NO! 

They ran as fast as they could to try to escape the mighty t-rex!  They tried hiding behind cars and buildings, but the t-rex kept finding them!  The queen suddenly had an idea!  She rallied the king, the evil prince, and one of the princesses into action!

 They're going to save the day!

They're going to save the day!

The king and evil prince sprang into action and carried the t-rex away, back to Jurassic World.  They made it back just in time for prom!  It turns out, the evil prince was not evil at all...he's just an anxious superhero who's always looking for his next thrill.

The king, queen, princes, and princesses all went to the prom...and the queen danced all the way there!  And they all lived happily ever after.
