I am planning an AWESOME photo story series. It’s called Hang on to Hope, and I’ve already written the first three parts of it! I’m really excited about it. Today is my brother’s birthday, and him, me, and a couple of friends went to the park! We just came home, so there’s not any time to prepare for HOTH tonight (you know how mom’s are. They get to talking and it’s really late when you get home! ;)).

But what I did have time for, was a quick photoshoot of Emelie! I took these photos before we left, and am just uploading them…

She is playing a man in HOTH (Hang on to Hope) and what she was wearing was just too beautiful to take off without some pictures. She looked so cute, and she was just dying for a photoshoot.

So how do you deal with a demand like that?! Especially since this exact doll just traveled nearly 2,500 miles round trip with you a week or two ago.

I mean, all my other dolls want attention too.

But… the law of supply and demand are unbalanced here, so we deal with what we got.


IMG_9358This one is edited, it makes her eyes pop out. I really like it!

IMG_9359 IMG_9360This white flower stretchy headband is from the Etsy shop That’s Lolli. I was supposed to get it for Christmas from my brother, but it came before we moved, and got all packed. So, we FINALLY found them just a few days ago! It’s so beautiful, and I 100% love it and recommend it. It fits over the doll’s head perfectly and stays on without any trouble.

IMG_9361 IMG_9362We have a beautiful white rose growing in our backyard, and it matched Emelie’s headband so I thought…PICTURES!!!!! XD

IMG_9364Ooh, Emelie, don’t touch that! THORNS!

Strange, that no longer looks like a rose with the pollen in the middle. It does from the back though. We’ll just call it the flower from now on, no longer a rose. XD

IMG_9366IMG_9367 IMG_9371 IMG_9372 IMG_9373A few emotional shots are up ahead!

IMG_9374 IMG_9375 IMG_9376 IMG_9377 IMG_9378 IMG_9380 IMG_9382Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this one? She’s picking up her skirt, it’s blowing in the wind, and she looks so thoughtful. I’m seriously thinking of making this her new profile picture, but there’s another one I had in mind (read on.)

IMG_9383 IMG_9384 IMG_9385She looks so cocky and cute in this one!

IMG_9387 IMG_9388 IMG_9389This looks like it could be the poster for some photostory series in the future, the title involving a road, path, or something similar. XD

IMG_9390 IMG_9392 IMG_9393 IMG_9394A few different exposures…


IMG_9401If the rest of your doll is ugly, just experiment with doll feet. It’s interestingly unique. So even if you have an ugly doll, her feet will provide you a photo shoot. XD

IMG_9404She is so stinkin’ cute. I wish this one was focused more! :(


IMG_9406Emelie was so roasting hot after standing in the sun for what felt like hours but was only ten minutes, and wanting to jump in the pool! I caught her just in the nick of time.

It was a slow motion movie scene, me screaming “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO” in slow motion reaching my hand out to get her. XD

*no dolls were harmed in the makings of this photo. THIS DIDN’T REALLY HAPPEN*

IMG_9409I did however let her stick her feet in the pool!

IMG_9410Wet feet!

IMG_9411Now that she is inside she is much cooler. Ahhh, AC… ;)

IMG_9375 (1)This is the one I edited, I am THINKING of making this her profile photo but I’m just not sure! Which one? This one or…

IMG_9382…This one? I CAN’T CHOOSE!

Anyways, get ready to be blown away with awesomeness in the next day or two, when the first part should be up. If not, definitely this week if nothing traumatically crazy happens. I’m really excited about it. I think y’all will really like this one – I know it will be fun for me at least!
