Sunrise in Suburbia

This baby is trying to kill me. For the past three nights I've been either kept awake for two-plus hours in the middle of the night or I've been awakened hours before the sun rises. Oh, and have I mentioned that this baby HASN'T EVEN BEEN BORN YET?

One plus side of being up before the dawn is that it gives me ample opportunities to shoot the sunrise. Today the sky was looking quite stunning, so I hauled out my tripod and got to work. I shocked the hell out of my husband when he discovered me in the driveway wearing pj pants and one of his discarded t-shirts.

In the end I ended up with some pretty nice shots, all SOOC. I'm tired as hell already and it's only 8:05am, but I'm guessing this is my body's way of preparing me for what's to come, right?

Will you hit me if I say it was worth it?
Getting you prepared? Hmm . Would probably be better if you were rested I'd say.

Beautiful shots Amy. I love that you are able to put a positive spin on the fact you are already sleep deprived. I hope you sleep well tonight!

Stunning shots - worth finding the jammy-clad pregnant lady in the drive way with a tripod!
