iHeartFaces Week #48 Photo Challenge "Sweet Dreams"





I ♥ Sweet Dreams





This weeks photo challenge over at http://www.iheartfaces.com is "Sweet Dreams."

Tonight when my little man Brandon started to nod off I slipped into bed with him and... HE WOKE UP! That's just my luck! But I told him I only wanted to snap a real quick photo of him dreaming and to just go back to sleep.  I had the camera on a tripod, with the timer set and snapped the shot.  He didn't want anymore flashing lights and rolled over...so this was my only photo. 
I tried to keep the main focus on him, but I sure do wish I had about a dozen more shots to work with!
I enjoy being behind the camera as well as in front of the camera...thank goodness for tripods and timers y'all!


Now if you would like to see more "Sweet Dream" photos, go on and click on the above link to iHeartFaces and have yourself a ball. It's a great place to share photography ideas and make new friends!

  4. He is so cute. Oh my goodness. I think that Kaish might FREAK out if I started trying to take pictures of him while he was sleeping too! Yesterday at the hill where they were sledding, he said, 'Can't you ever put the camera down? It is SO annoying.' And then he and Shoshi proceeded to hide from me : )
