Before the Leaves Fall – Jasmine’s Bday Photoshoot

When Jasmine and Molly-Anne had their birthday party last month, I couldn’t forget about their photoshoots! It’s tradition, after all, to give each doll a photoshoot for their birthday. I found this beautiful spot where a very large bush grows on our neighbor’s side of the fence, coming nearly halfway over to our side as well. In the month of October, it blossoms with all these small and beautiful white flowers that drop down below. I knew it would be the perfect spot for Jasmine’s photoshoot and that I had to take pictures of her before the gorgeous white flowers went away. And that’s exactly what I did last month! I took a ton of photos (I mean a TON 😉 ), but I picked out a few favorites. Would you like to see them?

jaz4I hope you like light streaks as much as I do, because there are a lot of them! 😉

jaz5Light streaks! ❤️

jaz6I really like the bouquet of flowers that Jazzy is holding!

jaz7I love the light streaks on this one!

jaz8And this one. 😉

jaz9Ooh, ooh! This one, too! ❤️

jaz10Aren’t the white flowers beautiful?

jaz11Hey, more light streaks! 😉

jaz12I think this is the only photo that doesn’t have any light streaks… ?

jaz13They’re back! 😉

jaz14*gasp* More light streaks!

jaz15Still more light streaks, but slightly and toward the bottom of the photo. 😉

jaz16I ❤️ this one!

jaz17This one, too.

jaz18I love all of them! ?

That’s about it! I had to really choose between the ones I loved versus the ones I just liked. So instead of fifty photos, it ended up being only sixteen (if you count the featured image 😉  ). LOL! As you can see, I’m obsessed with light streaks I’m trying to improve my photography and editing skills! You never stop learning. 😉 What do you think of the photos? Were they any good? I love them all I’m not too great of a judge on my own stuff, so that’s why I ask you awesome readers!

I can’t pick a favorite, but can you? What do you think of my photography and editing right now? Is there anything I could do to improve? Let me know in the comments below!

Love,

    So pretty! Jasmine’s hair is lovely, and so are the white flowers! I think my favorite might actually be the last!…maybe XD It’s hard to decide
    My poor, poor dolls, I tend to either forget it’s their birthday, or simply not know when their birthday is o_O 🙁 . Since I started blogging, maybe that will change that! Do you use their birthday from their books, or the day you got them, or some other day as their birthday?

    WOW!!!! You take beautiful pictures!!!!! Hahahaha!!! The light streaks just add more amazing-ness (uh don’t know if that is even a word) to the photos. Hmmm my favorite would have to be… probably the 4th and the 10th. The angles are soooo creative!!!! And yes, the white flowers just give the photos a very majestic feel. My Saige doll is so jealous, she can’t stop bugging me to buy the dress that Jasmine is wearing…ugh dolls sometimes. They always get jealous at some point.

    And Jasmine’s hair is so pretty! Do you think you could do a tutorial on how to do that??

    Oh, by the way, did you know that your birthday photoshoots you do inspired me to do one for Lindsey back in the summer(when it was her birthday, obviously)? I think it’s a great idea! 🙂
