it only took two years....
one of my absolute favorite shots to get of a child is the sleeping pose! which to date i've never been able to get of my child for a few reasons. 1 - he's a super light sleeper and i've always been to afraid to wake him up. 2 - since the day we brought him home he's taken every nap and slept every night in his crib. no sleeping bed shots! 3 - to aid in his sleep habits we have his room DARK. beyond dark. walls are a dark brown. curtains are velvet and dark and we always close up the window tight so there's not an ounce of light in there.
then randomly last week it happened. i had to wake the little man up from his nap early so he could make his hair cut appointment (i know). i went in and opened up the blinds, pulled back the curtains, and started whispering for him to wake up. he didn't budge. not one bit. i talked to him, the dogs came in, nothing. so naturally i freaked out and RAN downstairs to grab my camera.
i didn't even take the time to get settings perfect - i just got them close and started snapping. i got just a few before he woke up but i'm pretty pumped. i finally have a few photos of my sleepy boy. :)
