Sweet Lolita!

well. if Julia was to do a lolita photoshoot, this is what is would look like, haha.

This was a really fun photoshoot and a great way to start off my post-college photography and an awesome way to use my NEW Canon 5D MARK II. Love him! His name is Gatwick.

For the first time, I did NOT do makeup! And it was a relief kinda, just because it gave me time to set up the set and do lights and other random things. Hayley did a fantastic job and i can't wait to upload the other photo with her makeup in it. Kim did nails, and a wonderful job at that.

I also edited her face and skin like how someone would edit a magazine cover, so that is some hardcore editing. I'm still practicing it, so its not up to par, but i'll get there.

It was like a bunch of people came together to make this photo happen, just like on a real photoshoot for a client.

There are some photos that are more in line with what Sweet Lolita actually is, this is just my interpretation of the lolita fashion and lifestyle, which, isn't really like lolita, haha. But the rest depict the right kind of makeup and the sweet, innocent, girly atmosphere that sweet lolita emits, so, yea. I can't wait to upload the rest, all turned out fantastic.



WOW! Thanks for the DD! I can't believe that I've have even gotten one DD, and this is the second DD i've received? I am humbled and amazed :D

Its ironic how I did this photo as a fun way to start off my post college life, and 5 days after starting my photo career, while at work sorting through shoes, Hope texts me that we got a DD.... SUPER COOL!

And I def couldn't have done this photo without hope and Hayley! and everyone else who helped along the way too, of course, most def! :)

"It's a nicely taken photo. All the decorative looks cool and the model's expression is creepy yet cute. Plus the blue tones plays a good role in the shot." - Baby, The Stars Shine Bright by ~igaboo ( Suggested by Cyantrum and Featured by lonelyarethebrave )

thank you very much! :D
I love this shot so much, and I don't even know where to start. I absolutely adore the color scheme and the whole theme of the shot in general. There are so many ways one could interpret this shot, and the quality is just gorgeous. You all did a fantastic job!

This has been added to my favorites, and for good reason.
