Entry To Gabby's Contest (Round One)!

The theme for this round is Red. When I first saw it, one thing popped into my head: Memorial Day! I think it's a very important holiday, because it honors troops. Anyway, I thought about how cool it would be spend Memorial Day at the boardwalk, so that's where this photoshoot is supposed to take place. Chrissa had an awesome time, and so did I. I was sooo happy because it's super warm out today!

Here are the photos I'm considering entering:

I like the color red, but I didn't want to overwork it, so I used white and blue in the outfit too (hey, I'm Dr. Sues!) since they're also patriotic colors. This pic isn't my favorite.

I like the way the shadow falls on her face in this picture.

I like this one alot, too.

This one is okay, but . . .

I like this one better.

Chrissa likes to rollar skate up and down the board walk and window shop in all of the souvenier stores.

I can't get over the shadow in this one! I love it so much!

Time to wind down after a busy day at the boardwalk.

I liked the first one better.

Of these, here are my three favorite:

First favorite:
Why I Like It: The shadow. Plus, I like the was the light's shining on her leg. To me, it looks like a sun-block covered leg shining in the sunlight.

Second Favorite:
Why I Like It: I like the dark shadow behind her, and how this photo isn't quite as bright as some of the others. To me, this makes it look like the sun is just starting to go down, perfect for a pic of her napping.

Third Favorite:
Why I Like It: I think it looks very realistic. The shell's the right scale to be a sovenier, the rollar skates look good, and I like the bottom of these sandals. I know that's a little weird, but I do.


This is how I set up the photoshoot on my deck. You can't really see in the pictures, but I used the spray bottle to mist Chrissa so that it's look like she just came out of the ocean.

"LET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!!!!!" :) Hehehehe.

Thanks, Lilac! It's just mix'n'match. The bathing suit is from Chrissa's swim set, the skirt and hat from Bitty Twins sailing outfits that I think are now retired, the sandles are from Kit's meet outfit, and the hoodie from an old non-AG outfit.
