Pumpkin Pals (A Photoshoot)

Happy fall, guys! I think the last time I blogged it was still summer, so I’ve really missed all of you wonderful blogging people. The last time I blogged it was still summer, so things have definitely changed around here. Birch leaves scatter the ground, Halloween decorations are on display, and we’re now accustomed to the mid-to-upper 40’s weather.

I’ve been meaning to do this photoshoot for a few weeks now. Since it appears that it’ll be snowing within a week or two, I decided that now was the time to act. Fall photoshoots are the best, yes?

Luci On The Deck (A Photoshoot)

Yay! Luci’s first photoshoot!

Luci is a gorgeous doll and her meet outfit is ADORABLE. Guys, I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve had her for a MONTH already and I haven’t taken her out of her meet outfit.

Now, let’s get onto the photoshoot!

I thought that the flowers on the deck coordinated with her dress so nicely. Flowers are super fun to photograph, don’t you agree?

You can see that Luci’s eyes have that downward tilt that is supposedly an AG glitch, but I think it gives her nice character.

Which picture is your favorite? Do you have Luciana? Do you like flower photography, too? What do you think of Luci’s eyes?

Patriotic Photography – A Collab With Chachel @ Wild Sketch

Patriotic Photography

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Today is one of my favorite holidays for several reasons – food, family, fun, freedom – and photography!

That’s why I’m teaming up with Chachel from her awesome art blog, Wild Sketch! Chachel, also known as Rachel, does amazing DIY tutorials, shows her beautiful artwork, and posts pictures of her adorable cat, Gosha. Go follow her lovely blog right now!

It’s actually kind of funny. My first photoshoot was a 4th of July photoshoot I did last year, and here I am with another one. Kind of sentimental, when you think about it!

Chachel and I decided that for our collab, we would take patriotic pictures for the 4th. I dressed up my dolls in red white and blue outfits and took them into the backyard for a patriotic photoshoot. Here you go!

Fifteen (A Lyrical Photoshoot)

Psst! Hey, you! Yes, you, person reading this post in your supposedly awful reader that I actually find very helpful but most people do not. In case you did not get the memo, today is Crystal’s fifteenth birthday. Yes, fifteen. Shocking, right?

I have been planning to do a photoshoot to the song “Fifteen” by none other than Taylor Swift. I am not really a fan of her anymore, I think her songs are getting a bit too edgy. But her old music is great! And “Fifteen” is a very sweet song. I’ll let Crystal’s adorableness take it from here. 🙂

DSC_0357

You take a deep breath
And you walk through the doors
It’s the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you ain’t seen in awhile
Try and stay out of everybody’s way

DSC_0332

It’s your freshman year
And you’re gonna be here for the next four years
In this town
Hoping one of those senior boys
Will wink at you and say, “you know I haven’t seen you around, before”

DSC_0333

‘Cause when you’re fifteen,
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen

DSC_0334

Feeling like there’s nothing to figure out
DSC_0363

 

Count to ten
Take it in
This is life before you know who you’re gonna be
At fifteen

DSC_0336

You sit in class next to a red-head named Abigail
And soon enough you’re best friends
Laughing at the other girls
Who they think they’re so cool
We’ll be out of here as soon as we can

DSC_0338

And then you’re on your very first date
And he’s got a car
And you’re feeling like flying
And you’re mama’s waiting up
And you’re thinking he’s the one
And you’re dancing around the room when the night ends
When the night ends

DSC_0343

‘Cause when you’re fifteen,
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen

DSC_0345

And your first kiss makes your head spin around

DSC_0349

But in your life you’ll do things
Greater than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn’t know it at fifteen

DSC_0346

When all you wanted
Was to be wanted
Wish you could go back
And tell yourself what you know now

DSC_0351

Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had
To a boy who changed his mind
And we both cried

DSC_0353

‘Cause when you’re fifteen,
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen

DSC_0356

Don’t forget to look before you fall

I’ve found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you’re supposed to be
I didn’t know who I was supposed to be
At fifteen

La la la la la
Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
And take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

Guys, isn’t Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit so cute on Crystal? If you are considering getting it, you totally should! It’s one of the best outfits I’ve ever gotten.

Well, don’t forget to wish Crystal happy birthday in the comments! See y’all on Monday!

Travels With Grace #3: Texas

Heyyyyyy, guys! Yes, we’re still in Dallas – and this time at the Dallas World Aquarium. There are so many cool animals here! Anything from manatees to sawfish to tarantulas . . . okay, those weren’t very cool. In fact, I avoided eye contact completely.

And to brighten your day, some funny things AGs in Alaska said on this trip!

“We have to pay sales tax here!” (There’s no sales tax in Alaska.)

“I’ve forgotten what it’s like to see houses with no driveways.” (Those aren’t really a thing in AK, either.)

“THOSE TREES ARE GREEN!!!!!!!” (And this one is pretty self-explanatory.)

Travels With Grace #1: Texas

Hola, y’all! Grace here! See how I combined a Spanish word and a southern phrase into one sentence? I’m so cool!

Scratch that. I’m actually really, really hot right now.

Why?

We are in Texas!

As you hopefully already got from the title of this post.

I got such an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm from my last Travels With Grace series, in which I went to Washington State, that I decided to do the exact same thing for Texas!

Instead of staying in one town, AGs in Alaska and I will be traveling to several parts of the state. We just got into Dallas today after a total of eight hours in a plane. (AGs in Alaska hasn’t slept since the day before yesterday, but she’s wide awake. It’s beyond me.) I’m going to keep the other cities a surprise for now, but until then, you can view my adorableness in these epic pictures AGs in Alaska took!

Aquí!

So, those photos were taken in the backyard of the house we’re staying in. I hope y’all liked them!

One more quick announcement about this series: unlike last time, where I was in all of the photoshoots/stories, I am going to be more like a tour guide this time, and post lots of pictures of what we do. There will be more photoshoots of me, I promise, but also lots of pictures of the cool stuff we go do.

Bye for now!

Grace

From AGs in Alaska: I sincerely apologize for the no posting on Monday, I was super busy getting ready for vacation!
