Grace’s Photoshoot + Tips

Yesterday I took Grace out for a photo shoot, because I realized that though I was playing a lot with her, I have only taken her on a photo shoot about once or twice.


Grace is so pretty. I love playing with her hair.


I gave her two French braids. They had a slight wave at the bottom, which was cute. 🙂




I love Grace’s charm bracelet. It’s really sturdy.



Her boots are great for mix and matching.


Her earrings don’t really go with the color scheme of the rest of the outfit, but I just let her wear them with her meet outfit, because that’s what she came in. The hearts do go well with the City Love Outfit


I saved the best for last. This is my favorite picture, because I took it on “child” mode on my camera. I read in a book that it adds more vibrance, so I wanted to try it out. I think it’s now my favorite mode. See how Grace’s hair and face have more color than in the picture above?

  6. I love the “child” mode! It makes her look more realistic like a kid! The braids are so adorable, I think Grace’s hair is made to be in braids.

  7. I love that last photo, that setting really makes the high lights and low lights stand out in her hair as well.

  8. Great photos. She is very pretty
