Baby Shower – It’s a Girl

This may have been a month ago but I just got the pictures and it was so fun reminiscing! My lovely friends and family threw me a baby shower brunch in honor of our littlest to arrive any day. I thought I’d share the elegant, whimsy of the day…

Grab a few shots of mom with her babes because chances are she won’t dress up too often in the short time ahead – give her a small photo shoot opportunity!

Have guests pray and sing praises over the soon-to-be arrival to encourage mom.
