Dolly Pal Tribute ... Michaela Unbehau

Hey there, Dollies!

How is the new week going? I hope it started well and
is getting interesting day by day for you. Mine surely is!

Well, it's dolly pal tribute time once again.
And I'm pretty sure some of you have already came across that name on the post title.
If not, then I bet you are intrigued, and later will be excited to see
what's in store for you today.

Presenting, published toy photographer Michaela Unbehau. Yey!

This gal I am paying special tribute for this post
had been one of my very first clients.
You probably had read about my tribute posts for her in the past.
But this time it's gonna be special.

This is because I am so happy to announce that this
dolly friend of mine's recent doll photographs
are featured in the Fashion Doll Quarterly Spring 2015 issue!

I am also very, very humbled to have one of her photos
feature ateliernishasha pieces in it.
I almost cried when she told me the news.
Sigh, she's just so inspiring.

Mattel's Barbie in Lara facemold here is gorgeous in her atelierniSHASHA paisley romper (worn as top) and striped maxi skirt.
I have seen Michaela grow beautifully with her photographs
through the years and I am just so grateful to have met her
because she has without a doubt the gift to show us
how beautiful tiny things can be with her lens.
Michaela definitely, effortlessly brings out the best in my tiny garments.

I remember when I was just starting out and she purchased some very basic items
like my floral romper - the very first pattern I made!
Then she got from me a set of striped top,
dark pink leggings, a belt and leather bag.
And she sent me simple photos of her Rayna
dolls modeling them. You can see those photos here.
So, yeah... it's been a long time since Michaela and I started collaborating.

And other than the photo above, I'd also like to share with you
some of her recent photos that she had shared with us in her
Flickr and Facebook pages.

Nadja in chevron maxi dress

Ayumi wearing those denim shorts from 2012

Those sweater and white pants look like they were made for each other!
And lastly, I just want to share this one, too.
An oldie but goodie.
A peplum top I made even before peplums
were back in fashion! Sorry, guys. Can't help it.
The print is just so right...

By the way, before I hit the sack, 
I would just like to thank those who participated
in the latest contest. We will be closing it soon,
so for those who hadn't entered yet,
check it out before
a new winner will be announced on Saturday AM, GMT.
The entries are so exciting!
You should join in the fun, too!

Okay, that would be it.
I hope you enjoy this post.
