Twinkle // Bokeh Snow Globes {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Bokeh and twinkle filled snow globes, star bokeh, ChristmasThe magic of the season is having taking notice of the small things and being grateful. My girls are still young and continue to love snow globes, with a beautiful twinkle in their eyes. How could they not when their little faces are in those adorable snow globes?!

Using a handmade filter to create the star shaped bokeh made this project extra fun! I used the bokeh tips my amazing friend Katrina Kennedy shared over at Capture Your 365 to learn how to make it. Using a star shaped paper punch gave me the perfect star!

Well there’s no better time to share some of my favorite photos of this holiday season than now! The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: One asks us to show photos that highlight “one thing”. To me, that means my love of shallow depth of field and wide open aperture will definitely work for this challenge!

And that’s just a few of my favorite Christmas songs! What are yours? What Christmas songs touch you emotionally, whether it’s a smile on your face or a tear in your eye? What photos have you captured this holiday season that makes your heart sing? I’d love to see or hear, so let me know in the comments!
