Episode 30: Kissing the children goodbye

Sitting by a waterfall, Camellia recalls the night when she parted from her daughters

Holding the note she’s just written, she tries to comfort Daisy

Then tears a photo in half, and hands half of it to Daisy

Even with an impulsive day off from posting to the blog this week and a late posting today, I still didn’t manage to get all of the pictures taken for this episode. There was supposed to be handoff of the note from Camellia to the stranger. Oh well, I guess we can assume it got to her, since we saw her with it in the previous episode.

Also, some day I have to get an infant doll. Poor Rosie hardly makes it into any scenes, since I don’t have a doll small enough to pass for her.



In my (almost) 60th year on earth I decided to set my fashion dolls free of their clothes and accessories and send them on adventures. This is your window onto my own adventure into a land of crafts where I have zero skills, talent or mentors. Wish me (and my dolls) luck!

  1. The pictures you have taken are absolutely lovely! I’ve struggled to find infant dolls that I like but I finally managed on eBay to get two super cute and unique infants. I’ve used a Simba Steffi Love infant for a while now and I’m not sure how easy they are to come by in the USA. I know how much you like unique dolls, though, and they look fairly generic.


    1. PS I’m not sure if non-doll photographers know how time consuming it is to set up each shot, but I certainly do and I know what you have managed is a huge amount of work – but the payoff is fantastic!


      1. Thanks for the tip on the baby doll. It doesn’t have to have a realistic face, just a baby-like form and size. And total agreement on how hard it is to take shots. You’d think that photographing inanimate objects would be the easiest thing in the world – far easier than squirming kids. But the squirming kids don’t tip over (usually 🙂 and knock each other down.
