After a Nap

I've been bad at taking pictures lately. Squishy is sucking the life out of me. The nausea, oh the nausea. I can still function and I'm not getting sick, but I'm just tired and "blah" lately. But I'm going to make a conscious effort to get my camera out more often now, practice with my new Speedlite, and not neglect one of my favorite hobbies! Plus, GG always asks to see new pictures of Braden and I need to fulfill that for her!

These series of pictures were taken after a nap one afternoon a couple of weeks ago. Braden was just beside himself, didn't want to be alone, but didn't want to get out of his crib. So we just hung out in his room for a good 1/2 hour after his nap, and I snapped away.

All these images were taken with my Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. LOVE. A great investment!

P.S. Flickr has a new size option for 800 width pictures...how do you like? Too big, or bigger is better? Let me know your feedback please!

  4. I like the horizontal ones bigger. But on my screen the vertical ones don't quite fit the whole picture on my screen.

  5. B is absolutely darling. And I'm all for bigger pictures on blogs. It's a peeve of mine when the picture is so small & grainy that I can't even make out what it is. Your photographs are beautiful!

  8. I didn't take any pictures of Sophia for the whole month of January and very few for February. I'm SO sad......and feel so awful about it. I was so sick and honestly it never even crossed my mind. :(
