365 Project: My birthday cake with Christmas tree lights in bokeh

Per my birthday wish, my hubby ordered this delicious carrot cake from Nourish Sequim, an all gluten-free restaurant. It’s easy to feel forgotten when your birthday lands smack in the middle of the holidays but, my hubby was determined to make my birthday (birthday week actually!) special and memorable! 🙂

365 Project – 332: Capturing a child’s literary milestone (November 27, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/50, Aperture: F/3.5, ISO: 800, converted to B&W in Lightroom

I love this photo because it captures the first year Nora really cared about reading her birthday cards and she read with such ease. I also like the focal point placed on the words from her daddy. It’s a birthday perspective I’ve never tried before which I think tells a sweet story about an important childhood milestone.

365 Project – 331: Norita celebrated the big “7” at Disneyland :) (November 26, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/250, Aperture: F/3.2 ISO: 400

At the “happiest place on earth”, it was just a bit happier when Norita was greeted with extra smiles, waves and “Happy Birthday Nora” wishes all day.  If you’re there for your birthday, ask for the magical birthday button.  It made our birthday girl feel extra special!   🙂
