Summer Baby Shower

I drove down to Little Compton, RI in late June to celebrate my close friend Sarah’s baby shower. Sarah and I have been friends since our Deerfield days. After photographing her wedding in 2008 it’s been so sweet to watch her progress towards this new stage in her life (one that we have been dreaming about for as long as we’ve known each other!) Her little man is due in early August and I’m hoping to be there to document the birth!

Her sister and two close friends expertly organized and hosted the shower. I loved these bird seed birds that were our take home gift

Hydrangeas from Sarah’s parent’s house on the Cape provided pops of soft color all around the house. Guests were invited to share their wishes and advice for the new Mum!

Sarah looked radiant and stylish as always

It was great to see my blogging friend Blair again – it had been too long!

The boys and the dogs cleared out and went boating 🙂

We all gathered around for the gift opening

Blair’s Mom embroidered this sweet bib

Reid’s old lederhosen got quite the laugh 🙂

How sweet is this??!!

Every Cape Cod baby needs sunglasses!

This was the perfect game for this shower – a match up of celebrity parents and their unusually named children 🙂

And then these sweet cupcakes were brought out – LOVE.

And add in a sister and a sister-in-law 🙂

The dogs provided entertainment by chasing each other around (Sarah’s parent’s dog “Crazy Jack” and Sarah & Reid’s dog Nellie)

Once everyone cleared out it was just Reid’s Mom Janet, Reid, Sarah and me…..Reid serenaded us

That night we did Sarah’s belly photos……stay tuned
