Heal The World | Z’s Memorial Day Photoshoot

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race


There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

If you want to know why
There’s a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares for joyful giving


If we try, we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and start living

Then it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better world

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.

Lyrics from Michael Jackson – Heal The World Lyrics | MetroLyrics


Thank you so much for reading! Today we take a step back and think about what our veterans and soldiers do for us and how they risk their lives for our country and safety. This song by Micheal Jackson makes me think about the goal of our veterans, and how they help heal the world and make it a better place.

I hope you enjoyed the photos! Doesn’t Z look stunning with the flag backdrop? I think my favorite was the first picture! Also, I decided that the camp series won’t start until next week. 🙂

Which photo was your favorite? Are you thankful for veterans and soldiers?

Setting Up American Girl Doll Sleepaway Summer Camp Cabin!

Hey guys! Paris and Tenney are heading off to Camp Pineapple as campers and Jade as their counselor in Phoenix Cabin! Check out this fun, relaxing, and weirdly satisfying (lol) video about making a summer camp cabin for American Girl Dolls. It’s the perfect place for the Camp Pineapple campers to hang out in this awesome doll room!

*Credits in the video’s description*

I have this shelf unit in the doll room I use as a photography/video/stop motion studio that worked perfectly as a cute cabin for a summer camp! I’m literally SO EXCITED for my sleep away camp – only like 2 more weeks! Ahhh I can’t wait.

So, some of you guys who’ve been following AGW since the beginning might remember this terribly cringey photo story series I posted, which was literally called “What My Dolls Did While I Was Gone” and was exactly that. As usual, it was super dramatic and very cheesy. XD

So I thought about doing a sequel series, (kinda like what Together is going to be!) but then I thought, “Wouldn’t it be so much more fun if the dolls were actually AT camp?” So, I decided, I’m doing a summer camp series!

It’s going to be full of photo stories, crafts, guest posts, games, activities, and a ton of fun! I have the DD surprise, my other blog, Together, a contest coming up, and my summer camp and vacations to work on, too, so for the next few weeks I’ll be filming/photographing/writing the episodes to be scheduled as posts throughout the summer, so that way I can focus on my other projects and have a fun series for you guys!

I’m super excited for this series, and I hope you guys like it too! Of course, the dolls need a cabin for Camp Pineapple (their summer camp in the series!), so in this video, I set up a cute summer camp cabin for the dolls! I hope you guys enjoyed, and don’t forget to subscribe to the American Girl World YouTube channel (we recently hit 50 subs, ahhh)!

And now, for some *drumroll please* behind the scenes photos!

Are you excited for the new series? Aren’t the BTS pics hilarious? Do you like the cabin? What do you think of my new profile picture?

I Entered Lea in a Doll Photography Contest…and Got 2nd Place?! | All Of My Photos From the Competition!

(The new design is up! Click here to view this post on the site.)

Hey guys! Emmie here, with some incredible news! I entered Lea in a doll photography contest, and I won 2nd place! This is such a huge achievement for me, and I can’t believe I made it all the way to the finale!

I put a lot of hard work into each and every one of these photos, so I decided to share them with you guys, and tell you what place in each round I got for each one!

Quick disclaimer: In no way am I trying to brag, I just wanted to share something I accomplished and I thought you guys would enjoy the photos! So, without further ado (adieu?), let’s get started!

This was my photo to get into the competition, hosted by AG TV. on YouTube! I absolutely could not believe it when I ended up being one of the finalists, that was crazy! I was so happy!

I really like how this photo turned out! I took it in front of a mural in a historic town, which was really fun. The original had a lot of stray hairs blowing over her face, so I edited those out in Photoshop Fix and brightened up the colors, contrast, and her eyes.

I think this one is my favorite photo out of the entire competition! The theme was Animal Week, and I actually got first place this week, which was crazy! I couldn’t believe it!

In an app called Messenger Kids, they have all of these fun and weird filters. I was experimenting with the zebra filter, which happened to work on dolls! I realized it would be perfect for animal week, so I put together a top out of some spare zebra-print fabric, and snapped a photo using the app. Then, I erased the background in PowerPoint, and added an African background from Unsplash. I edited the photo in Pixlr, and then sent it to AG TV.!

This weeks theme was Editorial, which basically means weird, high fashion, strange, glamorous, over-the-top, etc. This was a SUPER hard theme, but I ended up recreating a photo of Maddie Ziegler in her editorial photoshoot! I love how the photo turned out and I got third place!

I cut out elements of Maddie’s photo in PowerPoint, and then cut out the background of a photo of Lea. Then I combined all of the elements in both PowerPoint and Pixlr, and added some effects, and I was done!

The theme for this week was Movie Poster week! This was so cool and fun to make, and I think it turned out pretty well! I ended up getting second place!

Basically, I took a photo of Lea, and then darkened around the edges a LOT, so much that you couldn’t see the background and it looked super dramatic. In Photoshop Fix, I erased some shine marks and smoothed her skin, and in Canva I added the words! My idea for the movie was a horror/drama/thriller about a bunch of kids who are on a mission to find a lost girl, but it turns out, she doesn’t exist. *Dun dun dun!*

Sorry this version of the photo is so blurry! I had to enlarge it so it would fit. Anyways, the theme was Colors, and I got Orange! Orange is a SUPER hard color – nothing is orange, so it was really hard. But, somehow I managed to get first place this round, which is crazy!

I used a background from Unsplash and cut out Lea in PowerPoint, and then I added a transparent background image of a balloon from Google! I fixed up the photo in Pixlr, and added a quote.

So this weeks’ theme was Minimalistic/Simplistic Week, and I was actually on the bottom! It was super nerve-wracking. I was nervous about this photo, and I had to ask a bunch of different people if it was simplistic enough, but AG TV. still thought that it didn’t fit the theme and there was too much going on. Thankfully, I didn’t get eliminated and stayed in the competition!

Once again, I found an image on Unsplash and cut Lea out in PowerPoint, and I fixed up the image and added the holographic fringe effect in Pixlr.

This week was Unedited Week, which meant that I couldn’t edit or could only minimally edit my photo this week! This week I kind of had to step out of my comfort zone, since I’d been heavily relying on editing for my last several photos in the competition. I actually got first place, though, which was crazy and I was so happy! I really love how this photo turned out!

We went to the park for one of my first location shoots in a while, and I took a bunch of different photos of her with my Mom’s iPhone X. The only editing I did was brightening up the exposure, and that’s it! This was super fun to take and I’m really happy about the end result!

So this week was Marvel Week, AKA the grand finale! I did Black Widow as my character. I was SO NERVOUS for this finale! I got a few negative comments on this one, but also a lot of positive ones, so I was really nervous if I was going to win or not. Turns out, I got second place, and I was SO HAPPY AHHHH! I could NOT BELIEVE IT!!!

I recreated a movie poster of Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow/Scarlet Johanson, and used the background from it for the photo. I cut out Lea, and added some dramatic effects in Pixlr and the iPhone camera app. I added a logo in the corner!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is untitled-design-7.png

So, that’s how I did in the photography competion! I couldn’t believe that I got second place, and I loved the experience! I grew so much as a photographer! I’m planning on doing my own contest like this this summer, so stay tuned!?

What was your favorite photo? Have you ever done a contest like this? Are you excited for the summer contest?
