baby Eli


7 lbs. 13 oz., 20 in. long, born at 1:53 pm

Little Elijah, my new nephew, was born on Tuesday and I was privileged to be there at the hospital to take pictures shortly after his birth. Also, I was a major nervous wreck! It was my first time on the waiting side of an arrival and I was excited and scared and shaking like a leaf. I just knew I was going to drop a lens! Or step on a nurses foot. Or, you know, slip on a banana peel or something equally ridiculous. But all that went away the second I walked in the room and Dan told me “It’s a boy!” with such joy that I was instantly fighting tears. So happy to have been there to capture Eli’s first moments.
