May01 Laduree Baby Shower 2013
Christin of We Heart Photography sent me these beautiful shower photos. She tells the story so much better so here she is:
My sister-in-law Ashley is a girly girl to the max. With big, pink lips, perfectly porcelain skin, and the sweetest voice I’ve ever heard, I often refer to her as a “real-life disney princess”. So, when she and my brother Matt found out they were pregnant, it seemed like it was destined to be a girl. On Christmas morning they opened the best gift they could ever have imagined, a little pink baby outfit, telling them that their baby WAS a girl! (See that full story and photos HERE)
Once we knew it was a girl, my sister Carrie, Ashley’s sister Brooke, and Ashley’s best friend Gabrielle set out to throw a perfectly girly baby shower. Ashley’s inspiration for baby girl’s bedroom is the Paris macaron shop, Laduree. This instantly became our inspiration for the baby shower. We thought pink, lavender, mint, and cream. We thought desserts and pom poms and sweet gold details. We started the evening with Ashley’s favorite dinner, tomato soup and adult grilled cheese, and ended it with macarons from the LA macaron shop, Bottega Louie. We drank tea out of mismatched vintage teacups and played a few fun games. My favorite detail came at the end of the night when everyone got to go home with an essential oil, all-natural candle from Mr. B’s Luminaries. They were the perfect favor, not only because of their French Lavender scent but also because the jars they are in are actually recycled baby food jars. So fitting for a baby shower!
It was a beautiful evening filled with adorable, girly details and so much love for our sweet Ashley and baby girl.

Apr17 A family day with family photos 2013
This family photo shoot is such an inspiration to me. It’s inspiration to get out of the house as a family, get on a boat, land somewhere new, be outside, sleep on hammocks, pet a horse and enjoy the beauty of this life together. What’s even more brilliant, is having a photographer document the simplicity and joy in a day together as a family.

Apr08 Beau or Bows 2013
This gender reveal party is just so darn precious. The bows and mustaches in the pink and blue colored drinks is darling, and the tally board is an awesome way to keep track, because it must be a competition. And then their reaction, I want to frame the photos and I’m not even friends with them…(don’t worry I won’t).

Apr01 Italian Dinner 2013
Dear Rinaldi Family…adopt me?
Really though, this is the most precious snap into this families beautiful life. I love how it puts on display the joy, fun and humor in the mundane of everyday life. Cooking dinner together, being Italian and a good cook, baguette sword fights, eating carbs beyond counting, a glass of red wine, hysterical laughter with family, then stealing a kiss before dinner…now that’s the stuff of life! Thanks for letting take a peak into your precious home.
