An Opening Photoshoot

Hey gals, it's Ginny and June. We got our package yesterday, and we said we'd do an opening photo shoot. Well, the thing is that we kind of took pictures of opening it, but we ran into several problems:
1. Our brother was psyched about the package and kept playing in the packaging and therefore was in our photos.
2. Our mom was cooking, and therefore, she got in the photos too.
3. We took the pictures with my phone, which doesn't have the best quality photos. 
Soooooo....therefore, we just used the things we got in an outdoor photoshoot. So without further delay, I'll let June post her photos, and then I'll post mine.


 Hey guys! As you probably are able to see, I got Isabelle's Sparkle Dress!! The dress is made out of very good quality fabric, and there are REAL sequins on top. The tulle also has sequins sewn onto it, and the hairpiece is beautiful. It's made out of metal, NOT plastic!! The bracelet is cute and slips over the doll's hand easily. The shoes were a bit hard to get on (I had to get Ginny's help for this), but it makes sense because they're supposed to fit tightly. Overall, I give this outfit a 10 out of 10!!





 This is my favorite of the pictures. What do you guys think of Isabelle's Sparkle Dress?





Alrighty, now for my purchase. Your guesses were great, but only one of you hit the nail on the head.

 Loren wins!! Haha, just kidding. There wasn't a competition, but she was right, I got Marie-Grace. :) Her face is beautiful, her eyes stunning. Her hair is very very smooth and shiny. The dress feels very sturdy. Her undies were a little loose, I think I may have to just take them in a bit. Her socks are the same as Cece's, and her boots were shiny and overall adorable!! She's fabulous!
I'm so in love with her face and her eyes and her dress and her shoes and---okay, I just love her :)

 This pic displays the rule of thirds PERFECTLY and I love it!!


 This is my fav pic of the shoot :)
You have no idea how excited I was about this pic when I took it. (June can prove my excitement because she was there) This is the first one of all of my pics that has some hint of bokeh. I LOVE IT!!!!!!
I give her a 10 out of 10 of course ;) Anyway, thanks for viewing our post!! I do have a question for you guys to answer before we go though. I was wondering if you guys would enjoy a sewing series called "Stitch-It Saturday." I would show you how to sew random doll things-anywhere from quilts to clothing to other things you all suggest. What do you think? Please comment your opinions below! 

Which was your favorite pic?

  2. Wow! You know I didn't like that dress of Isabelle's at first, but after seeing your pictures, I really like it!! :) "J'ai lu!" Yay! Marie Grace is stunning, and I love all the pictures! Especially the last one! Yay for bokeh! It took me awhile to figure out bokeh, but I have a few tips. I have a fancier camera now, but before I got it, I used my phone....and I was able to get bokeh with it! I got the best results by taking very close-ups in front of trees. The light shining between the leaves makes some big bokeh! :D

  4. Izzy's dress looks super cute in these photos! Some of the AG website pics made me not really like this outfit, but I'm convinced now that I like what I see ;0) Jái Lu! Congrats on getting Marie-Grace! She looks SO beautiful! I'm liking her unique face mold right now. Stitch- it Saturdays sound awesome!

    1. Thank you!! Bokeh is like those little dots of light that you sometimes see in pictures, sorry I don't know the exact definition :) We actually don't use a tripod. Our cameras are point and shoot, so we can just position them in whatever way we want; there's no viewfinder.
