31|40 Nap Time

Canon 7D: 24-70mm 2.8: ISO 250: 1/200 sec: f/3.2 +flash, tripod and remote

I decided to take my own advice and take a photo of something we do every day … record a routine.  I’ve been meaning to take a picture of my little one nursing to sleep for months, but there isn’t an easy time to take that photo.  If it’s time for a nap, she’s tired, and I want her to sleep.  And setting up the camera on a tripod and taking pictures isn’t the best way to help her get to sleep.  But today, I decided to do it anyway.  

I intended the photo to be a picture of her, and, in some of the photos I took, you can see her better.  I took this one after I thought I was done.  I had put down the remote and I started twirling her hair, like I always do when she’s falling asleep.  Then I picked up the remote and took a few more photos.  To my surprise, my favorite photo was of me – doing something I’ve done countless times since my first child was born nine years ago.  A routine.  Now recorded.
