Pretty as a Princess – A Caroline Photoshoot with Photoshop Editing

Hi there!

Today I have a short photoshoot of pretty Caroline. She is modeling the dress I won in American Girl Fan’s giveaway. It is such a pretty, silkyย dress!! Thank you Rolling Rock Dolls and American Girl Fan! Underneath the skirt, I added a tulle tutu that I made, making the dress more like a full, old-fashioned-type gown.

Since I just got Photoshop, I wanted to use this photoshoot as a sort of Photoshop trial run. I edited each of the pictures using Photoshop.

After the photoshoot (note: it’s a pretty short photoshoot ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), I’ll show you a few before and after pictures to show the difference from editing, and I also have one fun, play edit, as well!







Editing really helps bring out her pretty eye color!




This is one of my favorites ๐Ÿ™‚




Another of my favorites ๐Ÿ˜‰


And one last look at her pretty dress.



That’s the end of the photoshoot! So…

Here are a few before and after editing pictures! Before is always first, and I’ll label them, as well.





















And lastly I have a fun bonus edit! I was going off of this tutorial, but eventually just added the sparkle/lights in a different way (I think I used the dodge tool, in case you were wondering), because the tutorial’s version of Photoshop didn’t match my version.


Maybe not quite as magical as the tutorial, but I think it turned out pretty fun โ˜บ .


So, what did you think?

Editing really makes a difference, doesn’t it? I hope that you enjoyed the photoshoot, and editing!

Which picture is your favorite? Do you have Photoshop, or edit photos with something else? Any editing suggestions, tips, or critiques?

Would you like to see a post on how I edit (perhaps after I’ve had some more practice ๐Ÿ™‚ )?

What other posts would you like to see on Smile and Craft AG?

Thank you for reading and Have a Blessed Day!

    The dress is such a pretty color and fabric, and Caroline looks good in it! My favorite picture is this one:
    I think editing photos is a great way to make photos look better, but I don’t do it often because I’m a little lazy and I don’t really have a program with which I like to edit photos.
