She was already a princess in her father's eyes, but now little Nellee is truly the Belle of the ball.

Her dad Josh Rossi transformed his three-year-old into Wonder Woman last Halloween and he's done it again, this time placing her into gorgeous world of Beauty and the Beast.

Mr Rossi, a commercial photographer, spent a week capturing castles, cities and villages across Europe to take photos for his Valentine's Day gift to Nellee.

Disney's upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, a remake of the 1991 animated hit, is Nelle's latest obsession.

"The story of Beauty and the Beast has such an amazing message of true love and being accepted that I wanted to recreate the scenes with my daughter. I also wanted to create something my daughter would have forever that showed the fun relationship and the love I have for her," says Mr Rossi.

The elaborate costumes were donated by designer Ella Dynae, and with the help of wife Roxana and a bit of Photoshop wizardry, Rossi made magic of his own.

His daughter was "over-the-top excited" about the dresses, he says, but her favourite part was re-enacting the dancing scene between Belle and the Beast - played by Josh himself.

"She had seen it so many times that she had the dancing scene memorised. She got the most excited for that part because finally she could act it out," says Rossi.
