52 on Friday, Week 2: Refreshing {Cincinnati Lifestyle Photographer}

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” – Barbara Jordan

Nothing I can think of refreshes a screaming toddler like a nap. Now if only the boys would lay down for a bit every day, I’d be set. 😉

All taken with my 35mm 2.0 lens. Which is my one of my favorite lenses for single child subjects (such a fun perspective!) but probably not the best choice for stealth, as it sounds like an angry swarm of hornets when it focuses… I got only two shots fired before she popped her eyes open.

The 52 on Friday series is part of yearlong project with a wonderful group of ladies from The Bloom Forum. Check out the next photographer in the circle  – Lindsey Stuckey with Jack and Janie Photography has some adorable, colorful pictures waiting for you on her site.


  1. I just love all the expressions you captured this week!

  2. Oh these are perfect, your quote is very fitting, the shots of her yawning are adorable!

  3. I absolutely love this series! All the details and yawns and expressions! Thanks for the info on the lens, too. That’s one I would like in my arsenal! And sleep was all I could think about this week as “refreshing” but there has been precious little of that happening around here!

  4. I love everything about these! Love the quote and how the series of images tie it together. You’ve done a great job capturing your little girl’s personality!

  5. Holly says:

    I love these! And whole-heartedly agree that nap time refreshes kiddos and mommas alike. 😉

  6. Love love love these! Those yawns are precious! And, I totally agree that it would be great to take a nap every day. Now that my boys don’t nap anymore, I sure do miss taking one with them–ha!
