Barbie for big girls.

Flickr 2012

Sorry for the long delay between posts guys.  Things have been super busy with photo-shoots lately so…sadly….no doll time.  Finished my last job for the holidays this past week ( or least the photo shoot part) so I can put some more time into the blog…yippeee!!

Since I don’t have any new photos to share today..but soon…I promise, I will bring up some favorites from the year.  If you are a Flickr member and contributor, you have most likely seen many of these already.  At the end of the year, many of the fabulous collectors and photographers on Flickr post their most viewed, most favorited, most commented on and personal favorite photos for the year.  I decided to participate this year and wanted to share it here as well.  It was a hard choice to come up with a personal favorite so I am going to also share the runners-up for my personal favorite photo.  If you had a favorite this year, feel free to comment.  I would love to hear what people are responding to and what they would like to see more of.

    Rebecca, all your pics and beautiful and some are truly inspired. I think my fav of the ones in this post is your first runner up. The extremely shallow depth of field with just her eye, the greenery and the sweep of her hair being in focus really draws you in to her beauty.

    • Thank you so much Susan. That first runner up was a special one for me. Just LOVED that photo and never understood why it didn’t get “explored” on flickr like some others of mine. I hope to have some fun with that macro lens this year. Thank you for your support, feedback and comments. They mean a lot. 🙂

  4. Hello, Rebecca,

    I don’t think I’ve commented your blog before, although I follow it quite regularly. Your photos are beautiful – the dolls, their clothes, the settings … It’s hard to pick just one favorite photo 😉 But among them is certainly Let them eat cake series – I adore it! And all the details! It’s really amazing diorama. I even bought that outfit (Power play) when I got the chance! (I haven’t photographed it yet).

    I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy New year!

    • Thank you so much Andreja!! I am glad you are enjoying the blog. If I had put another photo in the runners up it would have been from the ” Let them eat cake” series. That was my absolute favorite photo diorama this year…so much going on in the shot. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and New Year as well.
