Baby Lucido’s Shower | Shelby Twp., MI

Up, up and away!

I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful baby shower in early August. I booked this shower a few months before I went on maternity leave and was super excited to get back into shooting once August rolled around. I had not met the couple prior to their baby shower, so I was super anxious once the day arrived. Dayna and Joe were the sweetest couple ever! We clicked right away and I had so much fun photographing their shower. Come to find out, we even had mutual friends!

Dayna and Joe did not find out the gender of their baby! I give them credit… I am the most impatient person ever and found out both genders of my two children as soon as I could!

This baby shower was beautiful! It was decorated as a pastel yellow, hot air balloon theme. I would have to say my favorite part was the beautiful letter that Dayna’s dad wrote. I found myself tearing up as Dayna read it to everyone that attended the shower. Luckily, the tears didn’t last too long. Dayna and Joe had their guests play the best baby shower game I’ve ever witnessed… The Dirty Diaper Game! This game was basically like musical chairs. Guests passed around a handful of diapers at their table. Once the music stopped, the person with the poopy diaper was out. Don’t worry… it wasn’t real poop haha! It was melted candy bars.

Thank you Dayna and Joe for asking me to photograph your baby shower! I am so excited for you two. Only a few short weeks until your lives change for the best. I can’t wait to find out if you’re team blue or pink! Congrats!

Baby Henke’s Shower | Rochester, MI

I had a blast photographing Baby Henke’s shower. I am so glad I was able capture this special day for the family. This baby shower was gorgeous! From the center pieces to the way the peaches were displayed, no detail was left unturned. The lighting was beautiful, but not as beautiful as the mommy-to-be!

I think my favorite part of the shower had to be the baby books. Christina had each table draw something in the cover of a book that was left on the table and then write a little note to Baby Henke. Baby Henke’s bookshelf will definitely be stocked with some pretty awesome, personalized books.

I am so excited for Christina and Frank. Their perfect, little miracle will be making his debut in just a few short weeks! He is going to be so spoiled with love… especially by his THREE big sisters :). ?
