Coco's First Christmas

Every Christmas is special, but this one is just a little bit more so,
since it's Coco's First Christmas.

This is a beautiful picture. I love how the lights appear on the tree behind your baby. Can you tell me what settings you used on your camera to get that effect? Did you use a flash on your camera?

Hi Christie
Those blurred lights in the background is referred to as bokeh (I love bokeh). Settings for this photo with my 50mm lens were shutter:1/100, aperature: f/1.6, ISO: 5000. I did not use flash, instead bumped my ISO up high to the 5000...even though it is a grainy image as a result, I still love this photo.
Hope that helps!
