  1. TRied to figure out how they did the photo frame reflection in a Christmas ornament. Did not work i could not get the right angle correct. Wanted to take pictures for Christmas of my dementia friends to give their families as gifts . Any help would be appreciated.

  2. I love these cute pictures. What great ideas for family Christmas pics! I have several favorites but I love the two kids looking at the Christmas trees.

    Thanks for sharing!
