AG Minis

I won an AG Mini's lot on ebay and thought I'd try to set the bedroom up. The blue polka dot headboard was a little too much with the wallpaper so I flipped it. I might try to change it completely but for now it works. 

The more scenes I set up the more I realize I am in dire need of accessories. I tend to have a lot of furniture but not enough accessories to make it believable. I also really need to dig and find something for the walls. 

So it's not much but it's a start. Oh yeah, remember those Lundby lights I bought? Well I completely forgot to get a transformer. So smart. Thankfully I have one of the smartest fiancee's ever to re-wire an adapter from the depths of the basement into a working Lundby transformer. How lucky am I? I'm off to add lights...stay tuned. 

Also, if anyone has any tips on how to get the lighting for the photos right I'd love the help. 


  1. Now I have got my new Stockholm house at last!
    I have no idea what to put in the bedroom, so it's nice to go around at your and Altera's blogs to get ideas! Love your fish tank and the fish tank table!
    I always finds lighting when photographing a problem. I usually stands with a spot lamp in my one hand and the camera in the other! But now I've bought small led lamps to help me get light in through the back windows.

  2. I just ordered my Stockholm this weekend (an early b-d gift), and I'm so excited about playing with it! Now, I just have to find a spot for it in the house :) Photographing can be challenging, especially since I tend to do it at night after the kids go to bed. I'd definitnely recommend shooting in natural light whenever possible. I also use artificial light to illuminate behind the house, since you can sometimes get shadows if the light is behind you. I'd say it's trial and error more than anything. :)

  3. Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate the help. Here's hoping the next round look less like haphazard paparazzi pics. I can't wait to see what your Stockholms look like : )
