My daughter keeps sneaking in my room night after night, and when I wake up with dead legs (because she doesn’t lay beside me on my kind-sized bed, but right on top of me) I can’t get angry because I know some day I’ll miss it. she’ll be too big to want to sleep in my bed and I’ll wonder what happened to my baby girl.

I took a little break from sharing more of these words from the heart/ love letters/ things I want my children to know (I’m having an identity crisis with what to call it). If you’re new to my blog (or not) I have to tell you, I updated my 365 love letters section, and messing around with those posts I realized WOW my photography has made an improvement. Check it out.

But first, a quick photo tip… Catchlights. I love them. I think they’re best when you’re standing near a window, with your child looking toward you, yourself positioned in front of the window (yet not blocking the light) is that confusing? Hope not. I did the opposite with the fridge shot below to create a deep shadow.
