Snow Angel
I was recently asked which photo of Snow was my all time favorite.
  And I thought about that for a few days........
the retrospect was truthfully about which photo MEANT the most to me, 
since there are many of Snow that I truly love.  
She is just photogenic if you can say that about a doll I guess. 
 But there has always been something quite special to me about this girl.

So after thinking on the question for a while,
 and looking through my set of Snow on Flickr.
THIS one was the clear choice for me. 
Taken before this past Christmas. 

 My vision of this photo took place many months 
before it came to fruition. 
 I knew for sure she would wear the white wraith dress.......
but finding the perfect wings took searching and time.

Once found, it was clear sailing
 but waiting on the perfect day/lighting was next.  
I don't use flash and I typically have to shoot indoors. 
 There were many 'takes' ..........I gave up counting.
and then...

Her pose was just right...
as if gliding gracefully on the clouds. 
 The picture of serenity and peace........
love and compassion.  .......
 it felt perfect.  

This became my Christmas card
 as well as a stock of postcards 
and note cards for my shop 
(which I neglect to put there)
 It became the month of December 
in a 2013 calendar for a dear friend
as well as a 16X20 canvas for my home..

and a photograph book,
20 pages of additional
favorite photos
some including Snow & Musette
and Snow & Rainah
in a sweet 8x8 format
Glossy cover

I have decided to offer a very limited number of the book

Snow Days

10 to be exact
 copy #1 is wrapped

the remaining 9 are pre-order only

All are numbered and signed.

Each will include three cards

one of which will be the beloved

Shortly I will add some cards

I'm also working on a few custom Blythes
and that is what occupies my time lately
when I am not at the office.

........along with taking care of my sweet Luli

I am so happy to have found this lovely place dear Rella. I wanted more....more hearing what you create, more of your thoughts, more of you, so this is a lovely place to come! It's truly dreamy, here. I am impressed and fascinated all in one. In all my life I don't think I have ever known an artist who has captivated my heart with these dolls and fashions and photographs as you have. "Awesome" is the word for you!

Dearest Rella, I am so happy to have found this place! To say how impressed I am is an understatement. I love everything about it. The photos, the dolls, the amazing clothing...your beautiful words...EVERYTHING. It's a place I will come often to lift my spirits and dream of the loveliest of things. Your talents astound me. I walk around for hours after visiting this place, " or photos you have taken" in a fog. A dreamy fog of wonder and delight. Thank you for every little thing you do, but mostly for of the very most special ladies I know. xo
