Southern Sunset Dreamers – Double Photoshoot

Hey, guys! I’ve taken about three different photoshoots of Taryn but was having trouble finding some good shots amongst the hundreds of photos I have. I was actually planning on posting a more winter-like photoshoot of Cécile, but after emailing my amazing blogging friend, Light4theLord, posting Taryn’s pictures seemed way better. XD

I was able to drag some decent photos out of the sea of awful photographs…  Thank goodness for editing software, right? So now, I give you…

Southern Sunset Dreamers!

I know what you’re thinking. What is Jasmine doing here? WE CAME HERE FOR TARYN!

Well, you see, Jasmine was getting jealous of all the attention Taryn was getting as the new doll, so she tagged along and photobombed.

I had a lot of fun making this braided updo! Would anybody like to see a tutorial? I haven’t done a hair tutorial in a long time… but then again, my dolls’ hairstyles aren’t all that great, so that’s probably why… LOL!

Jasmine’s updo was very frustrating for me. I tried two different times to do it on Taryn but epically failed. XD Finally, after three or four tries total, I ended up doing it three-fourths of the way and then adding my own twist (literally). 😛

I didn’t do any editing to make the grass this colorless in this photo, though it looks like I did, doesn’t it? I thought that was really cool! The grass hardly ever completely loses its green here in Florida, but there was this rare little patch in our backyard that did lose its green!

After arguing with Jasmine about why Taryn needs this photoshoot more than her, I finally convinced her to sit on the sidelines. She pouted and whined, but when I threatened to take her phone away, she clamped her mouth shut immediately. ?

Isn’t Taryn SO PRETTY?!

I’m not quite sure why I liked this photo and decided to keep it. 😛

Ahh, Taryn is gorgeous!

A few different angles…

This is my favorite! ♥

What do you think? A new profile picture, perhaps?

Or what about this one?

At this point, Jasmine could stand it no longer. She jumped in and demanded suggested I take some friendship shots… so I did. 😛

Sun flares! 😀 I didn’t edit this one in – none of the sun flares in this photoshoot were edited in, actually! Yay me! I’m finally getting somewhere. XD

You may or may not recognize this one from the sticky post about the comments! Which I’m still trying to fix, by the way…

Before you go, I have a quick question!

Which photo should be Taryn’s new profile picture?

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Or do you see a different photo you like better?

Thanks for reading! If you aren’t tired of all of my questions yet, do you have any goals for February?

Love,

    Like, seriously…HOW DO YOU GET SUCH AMAZING PICTURES??? I never photograph in winter ’cause the lighting is just bleh. 🙁
    But anyway, gorgeous photos, Madi! I would LOVE to see a tutorial of both hairstyles…I’m rather useless at doll hair. XD

    Exhibit A should be her profile pic! You should do a tutorial of that hairstyle. How do you get bokeh?

    Madison, your dolls’ hair is gorgeous! I love Jasmine and Taryn’s styles! There is hardly any fly aways and their hair looks so pretty! As for Taryn’s profile picture, I think I like Exhibit C best. 🙂 Where did you get the dress Taryn is wearing?
    I don’t know if I have any goals for February….I just want to stay on top of my school work and have fun with my hobbies! 🙂

      Got it! Her dress is from the Urban Explorer outfit by DreamWorld Collections on Amazon. I’ve wanted it for a long time and I really like the dress!
      And that sounds awesome! 😀 😀

        Oh, by the way, I’m having a really annoying problem with WordPress. Can you go into your pages and see if it’ll let you edit them? I can’t edit any of mine, and it’s highly frustrating. (I’m trying to get the URL for a photo, which you can do in WordPress.)

  11. Maddie February 1, 2017 at 4:57 pm - Reply

    Wow!! BEAUTIFUL!!! And giiiirrlll, those lense flairs ? You’ve mastered them beautifully! Lol Jasmine… her hair is FAB! And yeah when it comes to hair I’m like, “uh how about a French braid?” And saige always agrees (though usually rolls her eyes because that’s basically the only hair style I ever do?)

    Hmm I think I’d have to go with B. Just because it’s a close up so you can see her beautiful features yet it’s a far enough away it’s soothing to the eye, and can get a view of her outfit. Know what I mean?

    Uh goals for February:

    1. finish my Bible History school book
    2. Bake a red velvet cake (I’m a serious avid baker)
    3. Work more on my softball skills for this upcoming season!
    4. Finish my piano book (I’m in the last level)

    And yeah that’s kind of it XD lol

    SHE IS SO PRETTY! Beautiful. Gorgeous. Amazing. (I turn into a dictionary when I get excited….) Please, please do a hairstyle how to, because I desperately want to do that on Maryellen. I am definitely for picture A as Taryn’s profile picture. Jasmine looked amazing too-she will always be my favorite of your dolls. I love her name, too. Speaking of names, I just got the GOTY 2006, Jess Mconnell off ebay (she was GOTY the year I was born, and I bought her the day after my birthday) and I really need a name for her- So far I have Adalyn, Marie or Lily….none of them really seem to fit….Does anyone have any ideas?

      Madison February 2, 2017 at 11:05 am - Reply

      Isn’t she?! LOL! I’m so glad you like the hairstyle! I’ll do a tutorial on it soon! And aw, Jasmine says thanks! That means a lot to her. 😉
      Oh my goodness, congratulations on getting Jess! She is sooo pretty! Is she a tomboy or a girlygirl? I like giving my dolls names according to their personalities. In my opinion, I like names ending in -yn and -elle for Jess, alike Arielle, Ashtyn, etc… I hope that gives you some ideas!

    Taryn is gorgeous! We kinda want Lea. ? How are your pictures so pretty? We can’t take pictures during winter because of the weather. Anyways, the photos are beautiful. We would be so happy to see tutorials of both hairstyles because Bella is really good at hair and loves new styles, but Tori is hopeless.

            Oh my, some of the WIPs date as far back as 2015… before I had really figured out that I loved writing (and before I was any good :P)… so some of them I won’t finish, simply because those plots are no longer as important to me as they were in 2015.
            But, I do have quite a few stories, and a couple books, that I definitely want to finish! 🙂

    I’d love to see a hairstyle tutorial! Does Jasmine’s hairstyle happen to be this one, http://www.americangirlfan.com/2015/07/american-girl-doll-hairstyle-headband-tuck-bun.html ? I tried a similar thing on Clara, and it was kinda tricky!

      I’m so glad to hear your story is going really good so far! And wishing you the best of luck with your videos for your YouTube channel! (Aw man, that’s awful! Something similar happened to me before. 🙁 ) Ooh, that’s awesome you’re writing a description for your book! I wrote a synopsis for my book a few months ago but didn’t have too much trouble, and I’m not sure what I did… I’ve read a LOT of descriptions and stuff so I kind of just knew how it should flow, and it turned out pretty good (in my option, at least! LOL)… I guess I’d just read a lot of descriptions to know how it should flow. 😀 Good luck with writing your description! I’m sure it will turn out AMAZING! 😀
      Ooh, you’re moving?! Wow! That must be so exciting! I hope everything goes well with your move! And thank you SO much again! LOL! And I hope to do a hair tutorial soon! 😀

        okay so, I wrote the description for my book: The Secret Princess. here it is: Amber was just a normal girl, but her life is turned upside down when she meets Amy Carter, and discovers that she’s a princess, when she was four, her parents – the king and queen – were killed. She was sent away to an orphanage so that they couldn’t find her too. She was adopted by the nice Autumn family, but was never told that she was adopted. Amber is mad that her parents didn’t tell her, but she realizes that they only did it for her, so she would feel normal. Back at the castle they need the princess, so Amber and Miss Carter go to the castle. At the castle she meets talkative Courtney, who stays at the castle, her and Amber quickly become friends, and they notice some suspicious things happening at the castle, all having to do with Miss Carter. Amber and Courtney have to try and figure out what’s going on with Miss Carter, without her knowing. Mean while, Amber suspects that Courtney isn’t telling her everything.

        I’m on Chapter 7 right now, but I’ve basically (hopefully! XD) got the WHOLE book planned in my head! I was wondering if you could tell me what you think of my book description! and, are there any changes you think i should make, or do you like it? I think it came out pretty good! ☺

            That Anonymous was me… I don’t know why it didn’t put my info in – cause I made sure that it was filled in before I commented. Well, I took your advice! Something just didn’t feel right about it, so I changed it a little, here it is: Amber was just a normal girl, but her life is turned upside down when she meets Amy Carter, and discovers that she’s a princess, when she was four, her parents – the king and queen – were killed. She was sent away to an orphanage so they couldn’t find her. She was adopted by the nice Autumn family, but was never told that she was adopted. Amber is mad that her parents didn’t tell her, but she realizes that they only did it for her, so she would feel normal. Back at the castle they need the princess, so Miss Carter goes with Amber, when she arrives at the castle she meets talkative Courtney, her and Amber quickly become friends. They notice some suspicious things happening at the castle, all involving Miss Carter. Amber and Courtney try to figure out what’s going on with Miss Carter, without her knowing. Mean while, Amber suspects that Courtney isn’t telling her everything.
            Tell me what you think! I definitely like this version much better!☺ Thank You So Much for the advice!☺

              Oh dear, so sorry that happened! That’s really weird! I seriously can’t wait until these comment troubles are fixed. 😛
              Ooh, I like that version better, too! I looooooove that last sentence, it makes me want to read the book so bad! Have you thought about including a little bit of your story in the description, too? I’ve read that on a lot of books; they have a bit of their story and then some description. Aw, you’re welcome! 😀 😀

    Eeekkk!! Taryn is GORGEOUS! And giirrlll you mastered those lense flairs beautifully!!! Hmm I think I’m going to have to go with exhibit B. Just because it’s close enough you can see her (beautiful) face features but at the same time it’s got some distance to it. Know what I mean?

    Ah yes. February goals… well here my top ones:

    1. Finish my bible history book for school
    2. Bake a red velvet cake (I’m like a serious avid baker. You name it I’ll bake it XD)
    3. Master the underarm turns in the waltz and rumba (I do ballroom :O)
    4. Eat more food <- LOL ?
    5. Get my closet under control. It Looks like a rabid pack animal was set loose in there?

    And yes! I would LOVE to see a hair tutorial! I usually just do a French braid on Saige which drives her nuts because that's basically the only hairstyle I ever do, but thankfully she agrees (although it comes along with some major eye rolling?)

      Aw, thank you SO much, Maddie! Taryn says thanks! And thank you so much for your feedback! 😀

      Ahh, lovely February goals! I didn’t know you do ballroom, that is SO cool! And mmm, goal #4… ? Don’t worry, you’re not alone on #5. XDXDXD

      Thank you so much! I hope to do it soon! And LOL! French braids are super pretty! ??

      • Maddie February 2, 2017 at 7:11 pm - Reply

        Haha no problem! I love how open you are to your followers’ opinions 🙂

        Yes I do ballroom!! You’ll hear about it in the next letter (I’ll get it in the mail as soon as I can. Like I said before… monstrous ?)

        Yes French braids are pretty, but saige thinks it’s just proposterous that she’s got this gorgeous hair and all I do it French braid it ? *saige in the background yelling, “are you kidding me?! It is most defiantly proposterous!!*

    Exhibit B or not to be, that is the question. If it is more noble to decide, then exhibit A.
