~Look Alive, Sunshine~






































 The future is bulletproof
The aftermath is secondary
It's time to do it now and do it loud

Killjoys, make some noise


I realized a few things yesterday.

The first being that this was by far one of my favorite sets of photos I've ever taken. I can't decide if they're up to par with some of my better quality pictures, but I love these mainly because the joy I experienced taking them was just wonderful.
I also realized what happened with my inspiration, and who I am as an AG blogger.
I will never be satisfied with taking regular pictures. I adore looking at others, but I can't find satisfaction in my own.
My mind revolves around stories. Setting, characters, objects. At the core of all that is music, and my personal interests. As a photographer, all I want to do is incorporate the things I love with the dolls that I photograph.
I think that's partially why lyric photo-shoots came to me. It combined music and pictures, and allowed me to add meaning to what would otherwise be another set of photos.
To sum things up; my spark is truly back, and with it has come the realization that my photos will always tell a story, whether or not other people understand it.

I'd really like to thank all of you guys for sticking with me since the beginning. It means more than y'all will ever know. ^-^


Doll: MK (McKenna GOTY 2012)
Mask & Ray Gun: Handmade
Jacket: LoriLizGirls&Dolls Etsy
Jeans: UpbeatPetites Etsy
Boots: Rebecca's Meet Boots (Not sure on this but I believe that's where they came from. :})
Inspiration behind title/photo-shoot: My Chemical Romance, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album



 and Party Poison character

    1. Any deaths caused are unintentional, I promise. ;)
      Thank you for your sweet words. Music makes up a lot of who I am, and it's safe to say that I am nothing without it. I think before I tried to squash the idea of incorporating it into what I did because some wouldn't understand it. But here I am. =)
      Thanks again, M. Your comments always make my day. <3

  2. Amazing pictures <3 I can almost feel MK and her character through the screen.
    I like the idea of always telling a story. Stories are marvelous things that allow us to express much more than we could without them. :)

  3. Yes! I love it!
    It kind of looks like she's hunting something. Like a ray gun hunger games Star Wars battle! With nose rings.
    I feel like you should write little snippets of stories to go along with these shoots. Not like a full on novel- those are hard to keep track of- but just scenes. IT WOULD BE SO COOL!
    Just like her nose ring.

    Your photos are always so neat because they tell a story... Like even the blog background, all the pictures. They all tell a story.

    Inspiration is such a tricky things. It decides to take leave whenever it feels like it. Glad yours came back :)

      That means a lot to me. I'm glad you like the story aspect of my pictures. :)
