photo share: bed head and daddy time

This week’s photo shares include a few photos of baby S sleeping on daddy, the favorite sleeping position of both of our kids for the first ~6 weeks. Eventually they get too big and grow out of this! And don’t forget toddler A, who woke up with crazy bedhead a couple of times this week. I had to get a record of this. All photos were shot on my Canon 24mm 1.4L, my favorite lens, that I use for 90% of my shooting.
