Princess Mary appears to be following in Kate Middleton's footsteps by turning into her family’s personal photographer.

The Danish royal family celebrated Princess Mary’s son, Prince Christian’s, 12th birthday by releasing an image of the young boy taken by the 45-year-old Princess herself.

The photo shows a smiling Prince Christian looking directly at the camera while sitting on a deck chair aboard a yacht.

Crown Prince Christian is the eldest of Princess Mary’s four children with Crown Prince Fredrik.

They also have two daughters, six-year-old Princess Josephine and 10-year-old Princess Isabella, as well as six-year-old Prince Vincent.

It’s not the first time Princess Mary has gone behind the lens and released photos of her adorable kids to the public.

Back in February the family went on a skiing trip to Verbier in Switzerland where the kids were snapped enjoying some time on the slopes.

And she’s not the only royal in the world who has a passion for photography, as the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is also a fan of adding to her photo album.
