The Winning Photo Story Series Is…

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for the photo story series I should make a season 2. It is now time to announce the photo story series that won the most votes! I was really surprised, because I thought for sure nobody would choose this one. But results are results, and here they are!

So, what is the winning photo story? The photo story series that is getting a season 2 is…











Yes, Hang on to Hope is getting a second season! I literally cannot believe it. I was so surprised that y’all would choose this one.

I’ll admit that at first I was disappointed, because I did not have as much fun making HOTH as I did with Little Orphan Emmi and Mines of Malaysia. But a few weeks ago, I had this really awesome story idea about these two foster kids who… ha, you really think I’m going to tell you? 😉 So I figured that I’d just apply that idea in the second season of Hang on to Hope. And now I’m super excited to begin making it and happy that y’all chose HOTH! 😀

Now because I want to post something more than just the results of the poll, here are a few edited favorites from Woodland Princess! 😀 I hope you enjoy them. Let me know what you think! 🙂






What did you think of my terrible editing skills? 😛 Were the edits pretty corny or pretty cool? 😉 😀 Which was your favorite?

And are you excited as I am for season 2 of HOTH? 😀

    My vote was for Emmi, but oh well, HOTH was my second choice at least! I can’t wait for the first part! Also, I’m doing my own PHOTO SERIES! It’ll be up soon, and it may or may not have to do with the surprise on Monday…But it’s about…Mermaids! That’s all I can tell you! But I was wondering if you have any tips, because I think that would REALLY help! Thanks Madi!

      Oh, I’m so glad you’re excited for it! Thanks so much, Sam!
      And that is AWESOME! I can’t wait to see your first part. Haha, I really like mermaids, so I bet this will be awesome. ;D Okay! My tips are…
      1. You can write out the story first before taking the pictures if you want to, but in the past I never did for any of my photo story series. I just went with the flow, totally making it up as I went. For season 2, I’m writing HOTH’s story out, but you can end up with an awesome story either way. If you don’t feel like planning your mermaid photo story series all out right now, don’t worry about it! There’s plenty of room for creativity and you don’t have to plan out every single part if that’s not your style. Either way, craft the story how it works best for you! 😀
      2. Instead of neatly wrapping the part up perfectly, you can stop abruptly at an action-y part if you want a cliffhanger. That leaves your readers at the edge of their seats, and they want to know what happens next, therefore they are excited for the next part!
      3. Make the photo story series that you want to read! If you don’t enjoy how the story is, don’t be afraid change it. Make the story how you want it and your readers will want to read it too!

      Hmm… that was longer than I thought it would be… ;P I hope that helped you in any way! Again, thanks so much for commenting! 😀

        Thank you! I’ll be sure to keep these in mind! Also, I notice that you once used a green screen, my photo series will need a green screen A LOT! So how would you do that?
        Thank you again!

          You’re totally welcome! I was able to add a green screen for videos in iMovie, but I haven’t done that with photos. If you have iMovie, you could do it in there and just take a screenshot. (If that’s confusing, I’ll explain)
