happy new year

January 1st | family, photography



goodbye 2009, hello 2010!


that sounds so stange!  so futuristic.

our new year’s eve party consisted of kiddos running around, grandma and grandpa, a few gifts, lots of finger foods and a campfire.  we counted down, blew noisemakers and pulled poppers at 7:30pm.  early night as we had to put the kids down by 8pm!


the photos where taken with a tripod (or set your camera on a solid surface) while using a flashlight to create an image.  make sure the flash on your camera is off.

    How fun, hubby and my eldest (8 years old) took quite a few pictures like that this past summer using hubby’s phone for the light. Yours look great, and it sounds like you had a wonderful celebration. Happy New Year!
