sleeping in her big girl bed

She’s growing up on me…..

I decided to see how FireCracker would do in her ‘big girl’ bed for a nap. When Littlest Brother slept in his big boy bed for the first time I was able to capture those sweet moments. It is one of my favorite posts. I wanted to capture this milestone for her too.

Photo Tip: Here are a few tips on how I captured her first nap:

1. A little bit before it was time for her to wake up I went in the room and opened the curtain wide.

2. Next I messed with my camera settings to get them right. I had to move fast because my shutter is so loud.

3. I captured a few angles of her sleeping.

4. Once she started waking up, I just kept shooting.

Her nap was shortened just a bit, but I got pictures I’ll cherish!



You all asked before…her Wonder Woman shirt is from Old Navy last summer.
