e x p l o r e | a paris photoshoot

Hey guys! By the time you read this, I’ll be at camp! *excited squeals* Ahh, I literally cannot wait! I recently went to my grandma’s house, and she has the most amazing backyard ever! It’s super aesthetic, and even has this little secret passageway.

I’ve probably done three or four photoshoots here, but I’ve improved so much in my photography that I decided to do another one with Paris! I hope you guys enjoy these photos with summery, adventure vibes!

This photo turned out so gorgeous with the bokeh in the back and the beautiful sunstreaks! I really love Paris’s outfit, too. This might be my favorite photo if Paris was looking at the camera!

I’m starting to think that Paris might have the eye defect. I’ve never really noticed it before, but when I’m looking at all of these photos, she’s not looking at the camera, even though I’m at eye level – she’s looking down!

I love this photo! Her hair is a bit messy, but the lighting is perfect. It looks like there’s a filter or something! If only she was looking straight at the camera….

I love this photo, too! It’s my favorite out of this photoshoot, I think. The bird pool reminds me of the Chronicles Of Narnia: The Magician’s Nephew, because it looks like the wood between the worlds!

This picture is pretty similar to the last one, and I really like it too. I prefer the angle in the other one, but the lighting is amazing in this photo! Plus, the colors are so vibrant. I can’t believe this turned out so well, I’m really excited!

She’s kind of looking at the camera here! Yay! I don’t think I’m going to send her in to the AG hospital right away, since the eye defect doesn’t bother me too much. Maybe while I’m on vacation I’ll send her to the AGH? I’m not really sure. Plus, I don’t want to wait three weeks! I should probably finish filming/photographing/writing Camp Pineapple first.

I think this photo turned out pretty well! I love the woodsy vibes from this photoshoot, and it’s nice how her jacket matches the background without blending into it.

AHHHHHHHHH! I think this photo is HORRIBLE. It’s probably the worst out of all of the photoshoot. Her eyes are completely dark, her face is shadowy, the lighting is harsh, the angle is weird….not my best work! Ugh…

This photo took FOREVER to edit, but I think it turned out pretty well! I took a different approach to the photo and tried a really far way angle that still focused on Paris. I did a ton of editing – the background was too bright compared to the foreground, so I darkened it, but it still doesn’t look that right…oh well! I also blurred the background, which is why the blurring is a little inconsistent. Sorry about that!

I really love this picture! The filter I added looks really great with the rest of the picture, and I also brightened up her eyes. I like the angle! The one problem – SHE’S NOT LOOKING AT THE CAMERA!

I played around with the weird lighting on the porch and it ended up turning out really cool! The light filtered through wood on the porch roof, creating these cool shadows on Paris and the pots and plants behind her.

Did you know I took all of these pictures with an iPhone 6? I didn’t bring my camera with me, so I had to use my phone. They actually ended up being really great quality!

I hope you had fun e x p l o r i n g the beautiful summer scenery with me and Paris. I can’t wait for all of the amazing adventures coming this summer – there’s so much possibility!

One of those adventures is going to be camp tomorrow…which reminds me, I better go pack. Bye!

What adventures are you going on this summer? Which photo is your favorite? Do you think Paris has the defect? Should I send her to the doll hospital?

Braving the Backyard: A Photoshoot (Ft. My First Real Camera!)

Hey, marshmallows! Or should I say llamas? BECAUSE I GOT TO TAKE A SELFIE WITH A LLAMA TODAY. AHHHHH! *cuteness overload*

IMG_0947

IMG_0947You probably don’t know that I love llamas almost as much as marshmallows! It was so awesome to ACTUALLY. SEE. A. LLAMA. IN. PERSON.

Actually, I’m still in awe of how awesome today was – today was the JDRF OneWalk, an awesome charity event hosted by JDRF! The llama was at the petting zoo they had set up by the tents. It was so awesome to see all these people coming together, raising money and awareness for Type One Diabetes, and walking a 3k or 5k just so people like me can live as normal a life as possible. If you were there today, THANK YOU!!

The day kept getting better and better because I got to set up the Canon PowerShot SX530 my awesome grandma got me for my birthday! Thank you so much, GMa!

Once I got home from Nutcracker practice and my camera battery had charged, I grabbed Z and headed out into the backyard for a photoshoot.

1

I liked how this picture turned out! With some editing, I brightened her eyes and added a watermark.

2

This photo barely needed any editing! I love the scarf from her accessories set that she’s wearing.

3

Her shoes from the 2018 spring mix-and-match collection are super cute, too.

4

Me when I took this: PLEASEDON’TFALLPLEASEDON’TFALLPLEASEDON’TFALL

7

Z: Woooohooooo! This picture was hard to take, but I like the end results!

6

Can you believe it’s November already? I definitely can’t! I’ve been spending the first few days of NaNo structuring my book, and when I finish, I’ll actually write the book itself for the rest of the month.

8

Z: Done with the slide! Time to get off.

9

Z: Hey, what’s this?

11

Z: Salutations, my loyal subjects! 

I love this one! It might be the best out of the whole photoshoot. It’s really cool how the fence made vignette-type shadows at the edges.

12

Time for Z to conquer the swings! I had to get on the ground for this photo, but it was worth it!

13

Isn’t Z so photogenic?

14

Z: Hey, look at Chewy over there! Hi Chewy!

Bonus Photos!

17

Aww, Chewy’s so adorable! He loves sniffing the grass for some reason. XD

18

He looks like he’s in deep thought. XD Don’t look too closely at Z in the background

16

For some reason, I think this picture of rotten wood looks cool. What do you think? Make sure to leave a comment!

I hope that you had a blessed day! I certainly did. Thanks for a great day, God!

paris + pumpkins| A Photoshoot

IMG_0790.JPG

Hello, people of the Earth! (#flashback) A few days ago, my little sister’s class had a playdate at a pumpkin patch. I tagged along with Paris and my camera! (Okay, my iPhone, but technically it was a camera still) 

IMG_0792

“This is the perfect pumpkin!”

IMG_0811

The lighting was really harsh, so it took a lot of editing to get her eyes to show up.

IMG_0809

When the lighting is right, though, Paris is so photogenic! I’m thinking about entering her in Cycle 3 of AGNDM with this photo. What do you guys think?

IMG_0807

I really like the lighting in this photo, but looking back, I wish I had posed Paris differently. She’s just kinda standing there, staring off into the distance…

IMG_0797

I was inspired to name her Paris by an old NTTM, actually! (Somehow an N kept sneaking into the end of that acronym, looking back at my featured images. Name That Truly Me Now?)

IMG_0796

Since I got Julie’s Basketball Set for my birthday as well, I decided to make her a basketball player! I’m even going to write her ‘meet book’ as my NaNoWriMo project!

IMG_0795

 Thanks for reading this quick little post! See you guys later!

Eleven. // More Cheesecake, Shopping, and a New Doll

iu.gif
my new favorite gif ^ (thanks, natalie!)

Eleven.

Wow. That seems…crazy, I guess. It’s hard to believe. You know what’s also hard to believe? How amazing Wednesday was!

And no, I’m NOT bragging, I’m sharing my adventures, so please no hate in the comments! (everyone knows virtual marshmallows are so much better)

Wait, that’s not right. I’m not sharing my adventures…Paris is!

*crickets*

Oh yeah, did I forget to introduce the new doll, Truly Me #53 doll, Paris? *squeals with excitement* She’s so cute! I love her! *brushes her awesome hairstyle* I even made a little unboxing video to kick off the post – and here it is!


NOTE: Most of the time, the video doesn’t show up in the WordPress Reader. Please CLICK HERE to go to the website.

Can I take it over from here? Sure, Paris! OK!

IMG_0705

Hi, I’m Paris! Right now, I’m at the AG Place for Emmie’s birthday.

IMG_2480

“This morning, Emmie woke up to the birthday song – a family tradition! Then, she opened the wrapping paper and quickly made an unboxing video for her YouTube Channel.”

IMG_2492

After that, we ate breakfast and then headed over to the mall.

IMG_0706

This nice girl at the Grand Hotel let me take a selfie with her! However, when it was time to take the picture, she got distracted by this:

IMG_0710

Apparently, Z is leaving by the end of this year! Emmie’s really sad about that – she thought that Z was one of AG’s best dolls. 

IMG_0713

Emmie thinks this picture is artistic…I mean, if you squint your eyes and tilt your head it looks a bit artistic – Hey!

IMG_0720

“Whoooooooo is that girl IIIIIIII see, staaaaaaaaring straight baaaaack at meeeeeee?”

IMG_0722

Strike a pose!

IMG_0725

No offense to this CYO model, but she’s kind of creepy.

IMG_0726

You can get your ears pierced at the AGP now!

IMG_0730

After we looked around the store for a bit, we headed over to The Children’s Place for some shopping!

IMG_0731

Everything seemed to be 40% off for some reason.

IMG_0735

After stopping at Crazy 8, we headed over to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch. I had a ton of fun with the kids menu!

IMG_0736

More selfies!

IMG_0744

The pineapple pizza I ate was super good! Tenney photobombed, LOL! She came along with me to the store, and we’ve become pretty good friends.

Before…and after. Cheesecake successfully annihilated. 

Then, Emmie went ice skating! I couldn’t go, sadly, because I don’t have any skates. Emmie and her sister were the only people on the whole rink! It was super cool!

Thanks for the post, Paris! I filmed a little outro for you guys while I was on the ice:

Lea’s Golden Hour Adventure {a photoshoot}

Hello, my marshmallows! Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be an introduction to Lea and her personality, and a photoshoot! (Why do I sound like a YouTuber? It’s annoying.) Lets just…start the post.

divider

IMG_3728.JPG

Hey guys! I’m Lea. I love adventure and the outdoors! Don’t you just love this location? I’ve always wanted to take pictures here! Lea is so photogenic!

IMG_3748.JPG

Lea is daring and adventurous and loves to try new things. This photo was really hard to get – I tried to balance her, but she kept falling! In the end I held her up, with my hand out of the frame.

IMG_0259.JPG

Her motto is Life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so Lea sometimes lets Isabelle give her makeovers. I’m working on an American Girl Doll removable makeup tutorial! I just love using this technique on my dolls, they look so pretty!

IMG_3747.JPG

After a bit of tree climbing, it was time to rest on the bench. Lea is ALMOST looking at the camera. ALMOST.

IMG_3745.JPG

I just love Lea’s outfit and her beautiful hair! I learned how to fishtail braid on it.

IMG_3742.JPG

Q: What would you do to get a good picture of your doll? A: Climb up a tree, dangle my iPad off a branch, and twist my body weirdly so I can press the shutter button. XD

IMG_3740.JPG

I love how this photo makes it look like it’s nighttime in the background and someone is flashing a light at her.

IMG_3727.JPG

I can’t get over how beautiful this doll is! I have some ideas on how I’m going to incorporate her into Forever Season 2…

IMG_3741.JPG

Speaking of scripts, I’ve decided that my Camp NaNo project is going to be a script for my Christmas Special stop motion! (I plan wayyy ahead XD) If anyone wants to invite me to their cabin, my username is Emmie10.

IMG_3725.JPG

After a nice evening of exploring, it was time to head home. Lea walked back towards the house as the sun sunk below the horizon and into the lake.

I hope you enjoyed this little photo shoot! Stay tuned for the doll makeup tutorial!

With love and marshmallows,
