A Little Glamour
Or a lot of glamour depending on your definition. I received a treasure trove of new outfits from the talented designer Hoang Anh Khoi on Etsy. I showcased one of them in a recent blog post with NuFace Totally Betty Ayumi. Today, a favorite FR2 Elise is wearing the fashion. The day before yesterday, I gave a sneak peak of my mood board for this shoot.
I also shared a couple of images along the way in this shoot on my Instagram story. If you are interested in seeing some of the process as I shoot these, feel free to sign up for my Instagram feed. The link for this is to the right on the sidebar of this page.

Magnetism in Green
Nothing like a redhead in green! For the next couple of months I will be going through some of my old portfolio for a future project and I will most likely be sharing some of those re-edits. These will be some of my favorite shots from years past. This will work in tandem with my Instagram as I try to populate that account with some work from my previous catalogue of images. I thought as it is St. Patrick’s day, it was a good day to kick off an ‘on theme’ post with a favorite set from the past.

Oscar Night Glamour
For the past couple of years, I have shared an elaborately styled diorama photo in honor of the academy awards season. There was the “Getting Ready for the Oscars” post. Then there was the “Presenting at the Oscar’s” post. This year, I decided to go back to simple glamour and use the newest addition to the BFMC Silkstone Barbie line. She redresses incredibly well.
This is such a Hollywood glamour shot!
For those who wanted a better look at her hair, here you go.
Lilith the Muse
Many collectors have face mold favorites. Many photographers have favorite models. For me as a collector and photographer, I can honestly say there are some dolls that seem to draw the lens and some that don’t. Great Pretender Lilith was and continues to be one of my favorite models. As collectors we also have those dolls that we go back and forth on as to whether we should purchase. I knew I loved the face on this doll. Her outfit was not my cup of tea though. I decided to go ahead and get her because I loved the soft makeup palette. I am so glad I made that purchase. I decided to put her hair up in a simple updo. She has such a regal high fashion look with the hair change. I adore it.
And…lest you think I only dress this doll in hot pink…here are some non pink shots.
But those were the only ones…then found some more hot pink shots. Too funny.
