262/365

Another birthday party! We finally got to celebrate Kristi's birthday with family today. We didn't do a full birthday extravaganza for her - she's just plumb wore out from school - but we had fun. 

This first shot is not particularly exciting, but I wanted my photographer friends to see it. That bright light on Kristi is all sunlight reflected of a tiny, white birthday card. The card - open - is no more than 4x4 inches, but the sunlight was so strong that the little card reflected all that light onto Kristi's face and torso. I wish I could get light like that all the time!

Some of the party decor...

Lighting the candles...

Before the guests had even headed home...

Thanks for stopping by!
