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!

bottom-left: me and both of my “little” brothers. Andrew is an X-ray Tech so he came dressed in work scrubs. We kept joking that he should just say “Hello doctor” and walk right into the operating room to assist in the C-section.

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

    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!

    I can’t believe how old he looks – he’s looking right at the camera already! What a cutie!

    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!
