My sister-in-law gave birth to my very first nephew this morning, a little bundle of love named Dominic.

Isn’t he cute? His first official photoshoot isn’t until I visit him tomorrow morning. =P  I couldn’t resist sneaking this one through the nursery window today. I know, I know… I probably broke like 83 HIPAA laws. I promise no other babies were harmed in the taking of this flash-less photo. He was the only one in the nursery at the time.

Pictures like the one posted top-right are the reason you can constantly find a camera around my neck. I caught my brother and all of his friends smiling over Dominic’s very first photos after he was born. A great candid photo makes me ridiculously happy. I am so happy to take these sorts of photos for others but at the same time, darn. I wish someone would be around to take them for me!

Welcome to the world Dominic! The kids already can’t wait to have you over for craft days and sleepovers!


  • He is so beautiful! I know how excited you are because I have three nephews. :) Congrats to your whole family!
    BTW, are those frames yours? I want them. (LOL)

  • I absolutely loved these. That is an awesome-quality photo for a through-the-nursery-window shot. He looks like a little beauty–and so alert! And the candid of all “the boys” grinning and ooohing and ahhhing over the photo–priceless!

  • Congratulations Aunt Gina!! Congratulations to Matt and Danielle!!!
    Dominic is Absolutely Beautiful.
    I love the candid moments

  • Aww, he was born on the same day as my ten yr. old son! Congratulations! Ugh, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve stopped by to take a peek at your site!
