doll a day 3 – wish

  • Posted on May 3, 2013 at 3:32 pm

double wish on this one. i really wish i had a good camera with me to get better lighting! but i had to make do with a cell phone camera still, which adds interesting constraints in and of itself.

anyway. just around the curve of the hospital you can see the outdoor playground. but we are in isolation so we can only…wish

doll a day adventure

lucy and emmie have been keeping my son and me company at the hospital for the past while. for day one lucy chose the word adventure. she climbed into the basket of blood pressure cuffs and decided the preemie one wasnt too bad a fit.

taking a break

  • Posted on March 26, 2013 at 11:34 pm

we had a pretty crazy month here, with a serious illness of one of my kids, so it’s been a while since i’ve had a chance to update, but today we decided it was time for a break and took 4 of the girls on a walk round the lake. eilidh discovered a tree that was filled with holes made (we think) by a woodpecker and just had to explore. she had a great time climbing in and out of the holes. i loved the color of her hair against the bark and snapped a few pictures.

here’s my favorite shot
eilidh checking out giant woodpeckers holes

lucy hiked through the snow and climbed a tree for her shot, all while managing to stay looking as chic as always, though she has informed me that next on her wish list is a black jean skirt!


i never said my girls were practical. aerin also wore dress shoes for hiking and climbing trees!

kiri was camera shy today, but we’re out again tomorrow if the weather holds, so i’ll have to try catch her then.

quick and easy photo lights/light box

  • Posted on February 22, 2013 at 4:12 pm

i got some new “photo” lights for christmas, and tried them out for the first time today. i’m really pleased with how much they improved the picture quality. this is basically untouched (i changed the color slightly- the daylight bulbs weren’t quite right but that was it, normally i do a lot more editing than that) i’m impressed since i picked something really tough to try-really high contrast both in terms of dark/light clothes and the vividness of lucy’s coloring vs the emmie’s delicate tones

here is my set up. it was pretty simple. a couple of clips from the dollar store hold up the foamcore board backdrop. (an idea i got off an internet tutorial, sorry i can’t remember where) this works so much better than propping it up against a box on the table! it was always sliding or falling over when i did that. the lights are $20 clip on tasks lights from homedepot with daylight twister flourescent bulbs that you can get anywhere!

the third light source is my window, afternoon sun, midwinter, with the sun above the house – so not super bright, but if i was taking pictures in the evening i would need another couple lights to replace it i think.

i had planned to go the whole light box box route and build movable sides and covers for the lights to get them more diffuse, but it really wasn’t necessary. there are no harsh shadows the way it is, and the covers/lightbox cut down on the light so i would just have to add more. maybe if i got higher wattage lights i would need covers but these ones don’t need it (they are 100w equivalents 21 watts actual i believe)

lucy’s back

lucy is back with a new faceup. she was really rough on her old one, multiple scratches and lost lashes in just a week, but her new face captured pretty much what i loved about the old one so it is all good. i’m not sure what is getting into the littlefees lately though. they are all attitude when it comes to clothes and pictures. i’d expect that from the teenagers, but not the ‘fees!

lucy is also going through a phase of only wearing black, not a goth sort of black, she is into an urban chic sort of black. i have to admit it really suits her and looks great against that flaming red hair.
