My First BIBPC Entry

In case you didn’t know, Megan is having her second BIBPC (Boring Into Beautiful Photography Contest). I’m in it this time! The first category is little things, so I chose to enter this photo:

DSC_0425[1]
I’ve taken plenty of pictures of actual little things, but I thought this was best because a baby is a little thing (physically) and this was one of those “little things” moments. I took this a while ago, and the reason Echo’s face looks so pitiful is because she knows she’s not allowed to go near the baby. πŸ˜‰

God bless, everyone!
