and the winner is... :: minneapolis family photographer

Thanks to everybody who signed up for my newsletter! The winner of the contest is Stacy Monaghan. Email me your address and I'll get your iTunes giftcard in the mail! Here are some photos of the very newest addition to our family - my nephew [W]. He actually has the very coolest name, but I try not to share anyone's name on here, just faces. I was supposed to photograph his birth, but he snuck up last minute and had to be delivered by an emergency C-section. He has had a few roadblocks in his first two weeks of life, but is healthy and thriving now.

I haven't gotten to have a proper newborn session with him yet, because between our two families there hasn't been a moment of good health since he's been home in the last week. I'm hoping to get my hands on him in the next couple days and I'll be sure to post some photos. For now, here are some photos from the first few hours in the hospital. He went to the special care nursery shortly after birth, but I was able to sneak in some photos before then. Wasn't able to get him buck naked since he had some problems keeping his temperature up, but I grabbed some photos of him getting dressed in his first outfit! He's just a teeny peanut here, at 5lbs 14 oz. Pure sweetness.
