Great work as always. Was this just window light? Your colors and light are always so great. Nice job.

Oh Darcey! They look just like sleeping angels! How in the world did you get them both to fall asleep in the same place? This is a winning photograph! I love it! I know this must be a very special photo for you!

Darcey,
Not only is this a great photo, but I would love to know how you got them both to nap. ;) Great work.

Thanks so much for your comments. I didn't plan this photo at all. They both fell asleep for the night on my bed. It was about midnight and I was getting ready to bring them to their own beds. I took one look at them and knew I had to grab my camera. They were both fast asleep, so I turned on two table lamps on either side of them and took this. It was a little dark in the original, so I lightened it up in Photoshop. They both slept right through it! Yes Jessica, this is my new favorite photo of them!

Darcey this is incredibly beautiful! Great thinking! It's so soft and the lighting is perfect! Whatever editing you did to lighten it worked!

This is just so special Darcy. I can't believe your luck (mind you - you have executed it perfectly which is skill not luck)! It is one of my absolute favourite shots - wow, both asleep together - heads at the same end and such beautiful kids too. Congrats on making the finalist and I expect this will be a winner!
