Shoot and Edit: Good Night

January 26, 2011 Sarah Coggins

This week’s prompt for Shoot and Edit is what says “Good Night” to you. I had an idea for my photo almost immediately, but kept getting wrapped up in our evening rituals and forgetting!  Finally, last night I remembered and snapped a few shots.  “Good night” to me is cuddling with my sleepy boy just before his bedtime and reading books.

ISO 3200, ss 1/500, f4.5

His lovey and Soothie (pacifier) are restricted to bedtime only so those are a big treat for him to see sitting out on his nightstand.  I’ll let him have both as we read. Our books vary depending on what he selects but regular favorites are the two in the photo – Goodnight Moon and Night-Night, Little Pookie.

Join in the fun with Forever’n Ever’n Always Photography and Ramblings and Photos:

    Cherish those night time cuddles as long as you can. Will thinks he is getting too old for them now. :(

    It's so fun to capture these everyday moments that are easily forgotten with time. What a great keepsake!

    lovely image, can't help but think of bed time stories when i think of {goodnight}, the last few moments of the day to cherish :) and it's funny that you mentioned Goodnight Moon, it's on its second generation of kiddos. as it was my oldest beans first, received on his 1st birthday! can't wait to see how you edit your shot.
