Happy Birthday Dollface

Happy 6th Birthday, Dollface!
Everytime I see you, you have a new story to tell me about kindergarten and your fabulous teacher or a new song to share. You've learned so much in your 5th year, I can't wait to see what your 6th year brings you.

I took 52 pictures and this sorry specimen was the best of the bunch.


  1. She looks like such a cutey :)) I can remember loving birthdays at this age... happy birthday to her xo

  2. I always think it's "Taking the photo" that is what's most important. She looks like she's having a special moment!

  3. She's such a cutie! I hope her day was a good one {and yours, too!}

  4. That is so cute! She's so pretty! And Dollface seems like such a sweetheart.

  5. Happy birthday, Dollface!
    It must be family night on the blogs :) We all have photos of adorable little girls for todays pictures.

    Low light photos, especially moments like these, are hard to capture. you can use a a flash (but then you lose the ambient light), Slow shutter (stays open longer so more light gets in, but then you get motion blur), High ISO (sensor is more sensitive to light, but then you get noise or grainy photos), or large aperture (hole that lets light in)/small number (small focus area). Sometimes you have to use a combo of these things.
    The good thing is that you have the memory captured. :)

  6. Yep, definitely a camera limitation!

    If you don't want to get an SLR, check out the Canon G12, it's smaller than an SLR, and does great pics - I took this picture at sunset from the back of a moving jeep with the G12's predecessor the G10: Never would have happened with my prior point and shoot!

    And Happy Birthday Dollface!

  7. Ahem...time for a new camera...wanna go camera shopping???
    Happy bday dollface!

  8. You captured the perfect moment, she is taking that wish seriousely! What a cutie and what a sweet aunt! xoxoxox

  9. What a great Aunt and I hope her wish comes true!

  10. Happy Birthday to her.
    That is the beautiful thing about digital cameras is that you can take numerous pictures and then delete the ones that don't turn out well.
