A teenager's prom photoshoot was stopped by a little girl who wanted to meet her. The memorable moment was caught on camera, and it melted the teen's heart.
Children view the world through eyes of wonder, and they believe nothing is impossible. Kwani Taylor never imagined that anyone would interrupt her prom photo shoot, but the encounter turned into her favorite moment of the day.
The seventeen-year-old and her partner enjoyed their photoshoot in a North Carolina garden when a voice caught their attention.

SHE WANTED TO MEET THE PRINCESS
A man was walking through the Raleigh Rose Garden in 2017, and he told Taylor that his daughter wanted to meet "the princess." He referred to Taylor, dressed in a gorgeous and sparkly pink gown.
Taylor's reaction to the little girl's comment was straight out of a fairytale book. While many people might have shrugged off the attention, Taylor embraced it and called the little girl closer.

THE TEEN'S REACTION
Taylor hunched down to the girl's level and gave her a warm hug. It was a moment that touched many people, and netizens applauded the teen's attitude.
A user said: "The teen had a great reaction to the little girl. Some people would say, 'I'm not a princess.'" Another added: "If a little girl did this on my prom day, that would be the happiest part of my day! I love little kids!"

SHE WAS FIT TO BE A REAL-LIFE PRINCESS
The online community also complimented Taylor. Many people stated that they understood why someone would think she was royalty—she looked beautiful and had the personality of a kind-hearted princess.
"This is so sweet. It makes me teary-eyed. That little girl will always remember the magical day when a 'real-life princess' gave her a hug!"
ANOTHER CHILD THOUGHT SHE SAW A PRINCESS
Children don't always think before they speak, and it can result in awkward moments, but it can also lead to beautiful encounters. In 2018, Layla Lester was stunned when she saw a bride taking photos in Akron Falls Park, New York.
However, the five-year-old didn't know that the woman was a bride—she thought Olivia Spark was a real-life princess. Lester ran up to the bride and called her "Cinderella." Spark embraced the moment and made the little girl's day.
THE BRIDE'S REACTION APPRECIATED
Lester's mother, Jessica, shared how much the moment meant to her. She said: "She was just so sweet with her and just kept talking to her and asking her questions. Layla loved her."
The mother often had to excuse her child's behavior, but there was no need to do so this time. It was a memorable experience, similar to what happened with the teenager on her way to prom.
Spark and Taylor may not have been real-life princesses, but they certainly deserve the title.
