I had the incredible honor of getting to capture this beautiful newborn’s smiles, snuggles, and sleeps during his first week life.

And as special and beautiful as every newborn is, this one is just so much more so, because he’s my nephew. My brother and sister-in-law’s child.

I frequently get chills when I see a great picture happening from behind the camera.

But last weekend’s photo session was surreal. Chills and tears kept coming. I just can’t explain the weightiness of getting an invitation to be front and center, recording these special first moments as they happen.

And when it’s my family, it’s just a whole new level.

Welcome to the world, little one. You are so loved.
