Why is it that we can’t fully appreciate naps until we are adults? If someone told me to go lay down I would thank them profusely and fall asleep the second my head hit the pillow. Not scream and stomp up the stairs. Kids! They don’t even know how lucky they are.

When I want to take pictures of my kids sleeping, I am sure to have my settings set to what I think they should be before I walk in. In this case I knew it was pretty dark in her room so I bumped my ISO up to 1600 and had my aperture open to let in more light. After I get the shot, I then get more brave and open up windows if necessary and try different angles. I also make sure that it’s time to wake up. I will never wake a child for the sake of a picture. No picture is worth that risk!
