American Girl #38

One of Natalie’s favorite dolls – that she bought for herself – is Paisley (American Girl #38). She had fun doing a photoshoot with Paisley over the weekend so she could be our featured doll for the week. I think Paisley is one of the most photogenic dolls we have and her long straight hair is easy to manage making her a good choice for a first American Girl doll.

“Good morning, Ginger,” said Paisley, “what adventures do we have planned for today?”

Paisley headed to her closet and picked out a new outfit from Springfield Collection for her outdoor photo shoot.

“Should I paint my nails before the photo shoot today, Ginger?” asked Paisley.

“No, you have ballet class later and Miss Jenny doesn’t think it’s proper,” replied Ginger.

I love how the wind picked up Paisley’s hair in this photo.
