Pictures of Hailey - A Mini Photoshoot

Hi everyone!
(Wow, this is my first time starting a post at the end of a photoshoot.;D)
I hope you liked the photos above. Hailey is just so cute and I loved taking these pictures.:) The lighting in my yard has been great recently, but unfortunately I didn't get to take as many pictures as I had wanted to, since I was rushed and the weather was windy.;) But these pictures turned out pretty well, which I am super happy about!:D
If you liked these pictures, there are more on my personal doll blog, Wack-A-Doodle-Dolls.:)

Hi! As I was messing around with my new lens, and taking pictures of new items in my Etsy shop, and I ended up with a few good pictures and some bloopers! Take this one for example- 
This one didn't focus but I love the painted feel it gives, can you guess what Charlotte is wearing?

The blue lace sweater is my favorite shirt I have made so far!  
It was so fun trying it out for one of my first times and I can't wait to use the 50mm lens outside. 
Thanks for looking!,

Molly's Snowfall Photoshoot

Hello, everyone! 

A few weeks ago, we received a very light snowfall, and I decided to take Molly out for a photoshoot! Sadly, though, the snow has since melted and the tempeture have been quite unseasonably high where we live, so this will have to be one of my final snowy photoshoots :( 

(I happen to really enjoy snow and winter, so this is not enjoyable for me ;)  )

Here's the photoshoot: 

Later during this photoshoot, I moved Molly to a different location, and most of the photos turned out a bit overexposed so they won't be included in this photoshoot, but I did find this "blooper" photo that I accidentally took while adjusting my camera that I thought looked neat: 

Thanks so much for reading!

Meet the New Blogger, Bella!

Hi! I'm Bella and I am so excited that I get to post on Sunday on SBATD! You may or may not know, I "help" my dolls run A Doll's Life. I thought that for my first post I would tell you a little bit about me before I start posting.
My real name isn't actually Bella; it's just a name I chose for security reasons.
I have three dolls: Samantha (Pre-Beforever), Saige (GOTY 2013), and Katrina. (#19? Truly Me)
I love taking pictures of my dolls with my sister's Canon Rebel T3. (It's an awesome camera by the way.)
I'm a Christian! :)
I'm homeschooled.
I love reading, writing, and blogging.
I love sewing doll clothes for my dolls.
I have glasses.
I'm terrible with coming up with things about myself! :) (Anyone else have this problem?)
I take WAY too many pictures of my dolls.
I am great at procrastinating.
I am in between an introvert and an extrovert,
I like long boarding and bow shooting.
I think that that's about all. Maybe not, but I don't want to try and come up with more. :)
So I hope you enjoyed learning about me. Before I sign off, is there anything you want to see me post on here? I.e, photo-shoot, photo-story, bio of my dolls, pictures/reviews of a certain doll, or anything else? Just comment below. I am so excited to be posting on here! Hope you have a great day!

Celine, Marigo's Brightest Flower


Who is Celine, you ask? I didn't rename my Caroline doll, if that's what you were thinking. Celine is the character Caroline plays in my photo-series Katherine of Carpenchia. KOC is about a princess named Katherine who takes over her kingdom after her mother dies and has to deal with political intrigue, attempted assassinations, and invading armies. Celine is Katherine's best friend and the more calm, reasonable one of the two. xD

Which photo was your favorite? Comment below, and have an awesome day. :)
