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.

If there ever was a photo shoot that best displayed the ‘maternity glow’ this is it! The soft light and back lit photos with all those divine mother-daughter photos…it’s angelic!

Apr18 Australian Maternity 2013
These photos came all the way from Western Australia, and now I want to move there. The water looks so beautiful and clear, plus mom and dad are simply radiant. This photography is nothing short of exquisite, it’s truly breathtaking.

Apr09 Brooklyn Maternity 2013
Mel Barlow of Mel & Co. sent us these maternity photos taken in Brooklyn that I’m drooling over. Mel is one of our absolute favorite photographers in New York, so I knew she would exceed expectations as usual. They start out in some fun dark alleys and in front of colorful walls, and end their session at a posh cafe with the chemistry and personality of the couple exploding from each picture.
