Photo of the day: Birthday Bella

in Photo of the Day

I took so many photos over the last few days, and I’ve barely edited any of them – and clearly I’ve shared almost none of them. I decided a while ago that Christmas photos are more for documentary purposes than fine art or even sharing. I heaved a huge sigh of relief when I gave myself permission to simply enjoy Christmas without trying to turn every moment into a perfect piece of art.

Having said all that, when the presents are all open and the kids are playing with their new booty and we’ve entered that zen period of calm late Christmas morning, it’s a perfect time to try to capture a last little bit of Christmas magic. I was trying to get a nice defocused shot of the shapes of the Christmas tree lights when a curious pup stuck her head into my frame. And I remembered – hey, Christmas day is Bella’s birthday, too.

Bella birthday

Happy 2nd birthday Bella! Let’s hope this is the year you learn just a wee bit more impulse control. (But we love you anyway!)
