Working with Wendi and.. a giveaway!

I've already told you that I love photography.. When I "discovered" Wendi's website, I was stunned by her amazing work.. I realized immediately that we had to work together. We absolutely had to work together (You'll understand why if you check these photos here).

I sent her a message the same day and she replied! She said yes to working with me! For a while I was trying to choose which dolls I wanted to photograph.. I designed new ones, I was sewing all day until everything was ready! My not-so-small parcel travelled all the way to USA.. and the waiting part began.. For a personality like mine (I am 100% enthusiastic) this was the most difficult part.. Until a few days ago, when I received this message: "I did the first photoshoot and here are the photos"

I downloaded the files with shaking hands and I saw those beautiful photos of this gorgeous little girl holding my sleepy owl! I was dancing around, they were awesome!



 In the following days Wendi sent dozens of photos.. I can't choose which ones I loved the most! Everytime I opened my Dropbox folder I was excited like a little kid!

What can I say about Wendi's work? She absolutely captured the "soul" of my toys, their personality.. And the models she chose? Oh my God, could she pick a cuter girl for the dinosaur session??




 As for the babushka dolls, my instructions to her were: "Please take some photos of girls playing with the dolls..." Take a look at the photos she took and see for yourself what I mean when I say her work is stunning!





 But I have to admit it.. My favorite part of this process was Claire's session. Claire is Wendi's daughter. She's 5 months old and I could easily travel to Aiowa to steal her! Seriously, look at those eyes! Little Claire was the model for my new product line. Personalized owls with the name and the birthday of a new baby! Perfect gift for a newborn! I couldn't ask for better results..



 A few days later, there was the elephant shoot. Brandon had fun playing with my elephant while Wendi captured the moments.. The photos are so spontaneous! I love them!




 Last but not least... my birthday banner for a girl's first birthday! Sophia is such a sweet girl, I can tell just by looking at her!



 I don't know what else to say about all this.. Wendi, thank you so much, I am so grateful I found you! I hope we'll meet in person soon (you know when, haha!) . Thank you WRP team!!!!!!
