Merry Christmas!

Posted by
Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 26 December 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

My angel Shiloh was born on Christmas Day and made yesterday the most special as she always does. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday around the world and I hope to be able to be more present again in the new year. There is just still a mountain of work on my plate. I miss you all and wish you a Happy New Year!

One of the disadvantages of having been born on Dec 24th is that you receive only one gift along the year, Lol!!! ✎ ✓✓✓✓✓
