Best Shot Monday – 1/28/08 – Sleep tight

Looking to step outside of the box a little bit this weekend, I took this picture of our reflection in the mirror. It didn’t turn out exactly as I’d hoped (let me tell you it’s damn hard holding a 25 lb. baby in one arm while holding a heavy SLR, arm outstretched in the other), but I am still rather fond of it. :)

  1. WOW ! That is skill !! and it turned out great !!

  2. What a sweet moment – you captured it so nicely!

  3. That came out really cute! Awesome job. :-)

  4. oh…so nice. yes, i agree, hard to hold baby and camera. but so worth it!

  5. I am rather fond of it too. It’s beautiful.

  6. Soft, lovely, precious moment.
    What a photo memory to have. :)

  7. What a sweet shot! It seems as though they stop falling asleep on you all of a sudden with no warning, but you have this lovely memory.

  8. I think it’s a great photo of a great moment. Wow, he’s a big guy! He weighs almost as much as my 4 year old (she’s tiny though!)

  9. I love it!! This photo is simply beautiful!

  10. That’s a great shot! Sometimes I think the DSLRs weigh 25 lbs!

  11. What a nice moment captured. My “extended out with one arm” shots NEVER come out that good!

    I was just in the same position not half an hour ago. H was having a hard time calming down into nap mode today – over tired. We rocked for awhile. So peaceful.
    (when he stopped crying, that is!)

  12. Awww, what a sweet moment!!

    I treasure these rare pics of me and the kids – imperfection and all! I framed on of Q and I that’s totally OOF even ;) It IS hard to get a pic of yourself.

  13. Tender and sweet. Cherish those moments.

  14. What a sweet image…we never would have known you had difficulty taking it. You both look so peaceful!

  15. So sweet – it is a fantastic shot, I am totally impressed!

  16. So precious! I love Mama and sleeping baby pictures – and I *know* it’s hard to take it yourself! Well done!

  17. awww, what a sweet photo! totally worth the juggling heavy baby and camera at the same time!!
