Default Using a doll to take pictures of my bows and headbands

I have a two year old daughter that could be the perfect model for my headbands but she is at that phase where she can't leave things on her head alone. Also my husband doesn't want any pictures of her at my Etsy Shop and I tried to take them only in a way that the bow would be display and maybe her eyes, but she doesn't stay still and takes them off.

I am thinking that my other option is to get a doll that looks like a real toddler or infant. I am just thinking about taking the picture of the headbands and maybe the head of the doll and the forehead. What dolls are good for this? Anyone can help me with ideas?

I know what you mean about wiggly toddlers! I have to be honest, I don't think that dolls are a good idea. You might want to try a photographer? Some will trade, some will want cash. Also, I've heard that model searches can be good. Just my opinion.

What about taking some photos of your daughter and the products when she is asleep? Or take shots that show more than you want and then creatively crop or alter her face?

Agreed. I think dolls are creepy. Nothing turns me off more than seeing product on a doll head. I would rather it not be modeled...

On Etsy I saw a headband modeled on a dog. Yuck!
I don't think models are necessary. I only have boys so no models. I just take photos of my product alone and sell plenty.

Some women use dolls as models, even if they do not look like real kids. i would mainly worry about size more than if the doll looks real.

I think using dolls is fine but you would have to do a bit more staging so that the eyes wouldn't be drawn to the doll but your head band. Or if a doll is too much, I've seen ladies go to craft stores and get those plastic globes or glass globes and those look just as good. I've seen an etsy shop lady use an upside down vase with a bulbous base used to display the head band. You have so many possibilities. Good luck!

Perhaps you could use this doll;
I was just searching on ebay for an oopsy daisy baby petti for my dd and this doll came up in my search...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reborn-Baby-...item415caee30a

Now if you say you can tell that isn't a real baby then you are just plain lying. weird? I think so.
