Over the summer of 2020, I realized how very much I missed seeing little ones in person. Seeing their eyes light up and the smiles on their faces is one of the best parts of being a princess performer.
So I got the idea to do in-person visits in the safest way possible.
I know of a home in Littleton, Colorado with a wonderful porch that would be perfect for a safe, outdoor event. I asked the owners if they would like a princess to visit over several weekends... let's just say they were more than happy to oblige. :)
And thus, princess porch visits were invented.
This is how it went - the princess stood on one side of the porch in front of a themed background with a bench a few feet in front of the character. The children and their parents would come up to greet the princess and then when it was time for a photo, they would turn around, remove their masks for just a moment (who wants those in a princess picture anyway?), and then pose for a 'royal portrait'. They would then put their masks back on and have a fun little chat with the princess, before returning to their respective kingdoms.
These events were free of charge and were open to anyone in the Denver metro area who wanted a bit of princess magic in their lives. Little ones have had a hard, confusing time and I just wanted to give them something joyful to lift their spirits.
I did this for six different weekends - two of which were spooky themed for Halloween! - and it gave my spirit the lift that it needed as well. And I fully intend on offering this again in the future.
I have some silly stories from these events that I cannot wait to share with you! Stay tuned...
