Poppy’s in Petal Dresses

As many of you know by now, I adore Hilda Westervelt of Bellissima Couture.  Her work epitomizes what I love to collect.  Her gentle spirit and friendship have been and will continue to be a treasure to this “sister friend”.  This past December,  Haute Doll Magazine approached a number of OOAK doll clothing makers to submit work for their Spring issue.  As with all publication submissions, you never know which photos will be accepted for an issue.  Here are some of the photos I shot for Hilda that did not make it into the issue.  If you have not had a chance to check out Haute Doll’s spring issue, you should.  There is a treasure house of OOAK doll clothing makers in it…including Ms. Hilda’s work.

Models:  Especially For You Poppy Parker, Elegant Evening Poppy Parker, To The Fair Poppy Parker

Gowns:  Belissima Couture

Love this “especially for you” Poppy!  When I was setting up the shoot, I got carried away with all the shabby chic pinkness and it was too sweet.  I had to throw this red lipped siren Poppy in black to cut the cotton candy in this shot.  If she was the vixen of the piece…she could not be sipping tea.  She needed a DRINK.  You will notice that her glass is empty Winking smile.

  4. Hilda is the most phenomenally talented dolly dressmaker. I will have to check out Haute Doll magazine.

    I love the way you posed your girls, by the way. Great photo, down to the last detail. I’m already imagining the girls in pink as demure Southern belles and one girl in black as the wild gal who never quite fits in… but who always livens up their gatherings. 😀

  5. Your work is incredible! I didn’t know I liked dolls until I saw your photos. Thanks for this blog, you make me smile and give me inspiration for photographing my dolls. Can’t wait to see more 🙂
