Last weekend, I photographed a baby shower for a friend through my daughter’s preschool. The mommy-to-be is completely gorgeous, and a joy to photograph. Here she is in a shot I took her aside for:
The party was held at the house of a friend, who proved to be an incredible hostess. Here is the hostess cutting the cake.
As usual, the beauty was in the details. The food was visually stunning. I was hard pressed not to put down the camera and start snacking. 😉
After the guests ate, they participated in a few baby-themed games, such as a word scramble and a form of Taboo with a baby theme. I just walked around and took pictures of the festivities.
After a few games, it was time for cake, which was really well done. The cake had two layers, vanilla with praline and Tahitian vanilla.
The cake looked delicious. I was sorely tempted to have a piece.
After cake, it was time to open presents. The guests got an empty bingo card to fill out with their guesses as to what the mommy-to-be would receive, in hopes of being the first to get bingo. I thought that was a neat idea for a game. I caught a few pictures of the gifts before they were opened.
