just trust me

Another Loopy photo shoot... now I'm really getting into this "styling" thing... how much fun are we (I) having putting together for her to wear for pictures? She thought I'd lost my marbles today, by the time I was tying ribbons around her wrists and dripping her with bracelets... and then I didn't even do her hair. At this point in the process, perhaps she is starting to believe me when I say "it will look different on camera"... but she is still quite skeptical about my choices. And my makeup application. I was a little heavy-handed today. I had a feeling it would "blow out" in the evening light.

Other than that, we're just puttering in the craft room. I don't want to give away too much, just look at the top of my desk:

Well, then... just like Loopy herself... you're going to have to trust me.

You do such a great job with Loopy's photo shoots! I think I'm going to try to try it with the girls.

And thank you for letting me start out my day with an ooh shiny. That's up there with coffee!

b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! Can't wait to see what you're cooking up.

Oooo and thanks for the idea of using glitter and mini fairy wands for "sprite proof".

Miss Loopy is so lovely, and she allows you to decorate her, too! What a sweetheart.

Angela said...

wow! your photography skills still just amaze me! I have a favor to ask... would you do a photo shoot tutorial? I mean you are doing so many with Loopy you might as well...

I would like to know things like choosing the background/setting, styling the shot, camera and photo shop tips, etc. I really want to do some of these kinds of shoots with my boys, but being so young (8,5, and 15mnths), I am just not sure how they would turn out!

OOHHH-teasers. So not fair!

I would agree.. you need to post a few tips on how you get such a gorgeous shot. Though I suppose you can't teach me your talent.
Even so.. I'll start you out for the tutorial.

1. Hire Loopy
