And His Mother Was Glad

There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'm a big quote person, they are often full of wisdom. Ever since I had my son I've liked this quote because it always applies to me. I love my son to pieces and think he's the greatest thing in the world, that being said, I'm always one happy mama when he's asleep!

Question; Does the framing with crib distract from my sleeping boy, or add to the pic?
CC always welcome!

I love framing with bars from chairs and cribs. especially when it is that close.

Katy said...

I reallyreallyreally love this, so sweet, the quote is perfect for this picture too! And the bars, I think it looks GREAT with them in, it looks like "I'm" the one looking in on Sweet Sleeper! Great job!

The crib is cool, I like that you can see it. Love the thought you put into it.! Very sweet picture.:)

Very sweet. I like the crib bars. Without them, it is just another sleeping baby picture. (Well, except that it is your sleeping baby - and you can never have enough pictures of that! :))

I love that quote, and your picture is so sweet!!

That quote is fabulous, just fabulous! Your picture does a great job at illustrating it. I love pictures of sleeping little ones. When they are all relaxed like that they just look so sweet, innocent, peaceful...sigh. Its a beautiful picture. Oh and I like the framing!

Have to agree with the comments on the crib--I think the framing here is great! Your little boy has such a sweet face, and I love the sepia tone to this picture. Oh, and I totally know how you feel--I love interacting with my daughter all day long, but those moments when she's peacefully sleeping are so precious. Your photo really captures that feeling.

I've done some experimenting through the crib (the first time I actually got him to sleep by himself- commemorating) Unfortunately, mine didn't turn out remotely as good as yours. I love it! Just the right amount of crib. The sepia adds a neat touch. AND- I love Emerson!

I love this picture. It is so calming and sweet. Great job, and super quote!

I think the crib was good for framing. I have done things like that before in my own photos and think it is a good idea!
