I had a little trouble with these photos. I was in the shade so they were really dark for some reason, but I touched them up. I hope you like them!
I lightened up her eyes in this photo. I like the effect. :)
American Girl has used this material a LOT of times… I wonder what’s up. The shoes are super cute though. I love the bows!
This is one of my favorites.
Here’s the flower clip that comes with the Gorgeous Gold dress. I think it really pops against Darica’s red hair.
Thanks for looking! Which one is your favorite?

Pretty photos! I like the three last ones. :)
I absolutely love this photo shoot I would love to do this with my dolls!
Very nice! As I am the same doll, I shall have to consider this outfit.
Thank you! :)
Oh my goodness! These pictures are AMAZING! Darica looks so beautiful! :D
Thank you! I will tell Darica.
I like the last photo the best. You are killing my resistance to buying this dress, my gosh is it pretty. Your photos are so much better than the AG ones of it.
Fabulous. I like the photo of the top of the head and the hair clip best.
Me too. :) Thank you!
These pictures are STUNNING!! Darica looks gorgeous in that dress and these pictures look professional!:D
Thank you! :)
I’m serious, these photos could be in an AG magazine! Great job! I love the last one.
Wow!! I need this dress. The pictures are just amazing :)
Thank you! The dress is gorgeous. :)
Wow, beautiful photos! she looks so pretty, and I love that outfit. I think my favorites are the first and last photos. :)
I love the 2nd photo. It’s amazing. :)
By the way, do you have any tips for getting dolls to stand up/pose for photos? I have a lot of trouble with that.
I think it depends on how stiff their legs are. My Kaya has really wobbly legs so I don’t do many photoshoots with her. But I just tip the doll’s body back or forward for them to balance. In the grass, it’s harder because usually the ground is uneven.
Gorgeous! Your photo shoots are my favorite.
Thank you. :)
These photos are incredible!!!! I love all of them but the last one stands out to me the most ^.^
How did you get Darica’s hair into a bun like that? I have the same doll(Therese) and I have trouble with buns!
First, I put it in a ponytail and then I made all the curls kinda curl themselves around the ponytail. I did use a few bobby pins though.
Thanks so much!
A photo tip for you from a portrait photographer (me)… use your flash in shade. You will have to force the flash (pop up on a DSLR, or turn on in settings). If you can deal down the flash strength, that’s even better. You can also use a reflector — a piece of white cardstock, a car shade, a piece of foil. The trick is to angle it to reflect the sunlight back into the face.
Thanks for the tips!
The outfit, model, and photos are stunning!
Thank you! I agree, Darica is beautiful!
I really like the last one!! You are such a good photographer!!!!! Amazing photos! You are so lucky!
Thank you! God has blessed me. :)
Such gorgeous pictures! The second one is my favorite.😉
