Benjamin’s First Hour

When my nephew’s daddy came out into the hospital waiting room to finally announce that Benjamin was born, he had a camera slung around his neck.

Both my sister and her boyfriend, Chris, are photographers (their business is named Picnik Photography for anyone in the New York area), and he came into the waiting room bearing photos.

And not those blurry, shaky-handed camera phone shots that are typically snapped, but real photographs.

He had been here for about an hour, and here’s how his Daddy captured those first 60 minutes of life:
