Tomorrow You'll Be Five

Day 301

Tomorrow You'll Be Five

One of my most favorite parts of the day is checking in on the kids before I go to bed. Maybe because it is the only time I get to see them when they are quiet, but it is something I always look forward to (and will go do tonight as soon as I finish writing this). This particular night was something special for my daughter, because she fell asleep as a four year old, and would wake up as a five year old. 1,827 nights is a long time, but even after 18,000 more, she'll still be my baby

I love this one. Our kids look like crazy people when they sleep, and Dave & I take photos of them so they can see what they look like. How do I take a picture with such nice soft lighting? Mine always look like I took them in the middle of the day...

The way I got this shot was by using a long exposure (in this case 20 seconds) which of course means a tripod. The room was actually quite dark - the light was from a nightlight.

This only works if your subject does not move at all during the exposure.
