A Date in the Snowfall

Yayy, we got to photograph our cuties together finally. We woke up to a really nice heavy snowfall that was promised to last until the evening, so I had Mizya come visit me for photos. x3 We’ve been planning this snow-date shoot for a long time and I’m so glad we got to do it this ‘winter’ after all. We were kinda losing hope already.

Mi Cha belongs to Mizya.

Summer games

Mizya visited me again and we took more trips to the lake. I knew the last time was probably a perfect day that would not repeat itself. And it didn’t. The first time we went in the morning it was cold and extremely gloomy. The sky wasn’t visible at all, anywhere. Most of the photos look like it’s about to rain any minute. And, of course, the second time we went there was not a single cloud in the sky at all. Talk about extremes. I’m not a fan of photographing dolls in direct sunlight -at all, and lost most of my interest and didn’t even get to try some of the ideas I had.

But yay for beach props?

Waterside

Oh my god. Mizya and I had so much fun today. We took a trip to the lake with our dolls and were pleased to find that the beach was almost empty. There was a mother with two kids when we went, and when they left some more kids + parent came. Actually each time a group left, another arrived, but we did have moments where it was just the two of us. You have no idea how rare that is. Usually during summer the only time the beach is empty is between 4AM-7AM. Perfect day. It was cool but not cold and the water was fine. The sun didn’t come out too much (but we did manage to have all kinds of weather; cloudy, windy, rain, sunshine, more cloudy) and the photos came out fine.

We spent two hours crawling and squatting in the shallow. My most used pose was me on my knees with elbow(s) in the water, just holding the camera above water -and butt up in the air (usually in the direction of the occasional swimmers), lolol. I didn’t have full swimgear, just the bottom half of a bikini. Otherwise I would’ve gone for a swim before we left.

Avis did some faceplants in the water but managed to keep her eyelashes on. I’ve glued them on pretty well and the glue needs to be longer in the water to go soft, so yay. She did lose her sueding, though so I need to re-do that. But I would’ve needed to do that soon anyway.
