Baby C’s new Nikes
Round Hill, VA
June 7, 2008

My good friend Heather is having a baby next month! Heather and I have been close friends since we were 13, so it’s great to experience all of life’s big milestones together. This baby will be Heather and Scott’s first child, and they are going to be wonderful parents. Several of my friends were there, including friends from high school that I don’t get to see often enough.

I’m a sucker for adorable baby shoes, so I loved these little Nikes. Heather’s father and step-mother are marathon runners, so they gave their little granddaughter the gear to get an early start. Too cute.


This cake was made by the baker who made their wedding cake four years ago.
It was so good that I ate three pieces. I have no shame.


Candy party favors


A framed photo of the little lady of honor


This is the highly nutritious and not at all fattening punch that my friend Jen and I made.


A diaper tree made my our friend Melanie


Heather’s sister, Judy, decorated the top of her present with these two little boxes.
Inside they contained pacifiers: one said “Angel” and the other said “Mute button.”


Baby Zoolander’s first look


My good friend, Sarah, with her daughter Anna. Sarah was my college roommate, and I think
it’s awesome that she has become friends with Heather, my buddy from high school.


Heather’s mom is so excited about being a grandmother! She kept cuddling with every baby in the room.


I walked up just as Heather’s mom was chewing on baby Anna’s leg.
I missed that shot, but captured Anna’s reaction. Hilarious!


Darling Anna again.


Grandma-to-be with the amazing bouquet that Heather’s sister made out of baby socks and washcloths.


My friend Amy with her son, Andrew.


My friend Jen. You might remember the portraits of her adorable family.


Sisters Judy and Heather


When I have kids, I’ll teach them to charge more than that.


Scott is going to be the sweetest dad.


Ha!


Sarah and Anna are completely adorable. Right after I took this photo, Anna leaned out to kiss me. Sigh.
I can totally understand why Heather’s mom chewed on her.


Two of Heather’s friends are also pregnant this summer! Here they are in increasing order of baby progress.


Of course then I did the same photo with the dads’ baby bellies.

I had to include their Bernese mountain dog, Pongo. Pongo is the world’s biggest and cuddliest teddy bear.

Nice post.

thanks much, guy

thanks much

favorited this one, man

I should say

I agreed with you

What a nice thing to say, thanks!

Newfoundlands are gorgeous! I can tell you have a love of big cuddlebear doggies.

Wow, thanks for a great compliment. Do you shoot in raw format? It’s much easier to get a nice color balance in raw. πŸ™‚

I’m so glad you laughed! These guys are some of the funniest people I’ve known, so I’m glad the pictures captured that. πŸ™‚

So true! He is going to slip hard and fast from his pedestal when the baby arrives. πŸ™‚

I like the way you think. πŸ˜‰

Pongo is very comfortable being the center of attention. πŸ˜‰ Let’s see how long that lasts once the baby arrives this summer!

Pongo is seriously one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen.

How exciting that one of your best friends is having a baby, too!

SO much fun!

You captured the day so well! I think I had to leave before Pongo came out – he IS adorable. I like that little baby in the orange outfit too – he sure is cute!

Thanks for taking some great pics!
Amy

Beautiful shower and beautiful photos. πŸ™‚

The picture of the dads’ bellies was just too funny!
I love those little Nikes. So cute!

these are the moments that life is about! beautiful job again charlotte!

We have a Newfoundland (sweetest dog I ever met) and a Bernese Mountain Dog will take his place shall he ever pass.

what a nice shower!

I adoooore your photography. <3 (but you kinda knew that already :D )

I LIKE the Nike! πŸ˜€

Sadly, none of the photos I’ve ever taken at a friend’s baby shower have turned out this beautiful.

I know that part of it is your white balance somehow…Your photos look like real life; My photos look like life through a slightly yellow/red lens! Try as I might to correct it with photoshop, it never looks as good or as “authentic” as your photos do.

You constantly inspire me.

Wow, so many great pictures that made me laugh out loud! In particular…

1. The dad’s belly shots
2. Angel and Mute Button pacifiers
3. Sunshine/Moon onesie (um, is that the right word? I have no experience with kids :b)
4. Pongo! Reminds me of a bernese mountain dog my family watched for awhile when he was in between homes. I have a great shot somewhere of my mom sitting in a recliner with a pug, english bulldog, and bernese mountain dog all fighting for room on her lap!

and the baby shower looks fun, too! πŸ˜‰ The three dads picture cracked me up.

OH! MY! GOD! I want that dog. How adorable is he?! His face looks like he’s thinking “there goes all the attention _I_ used to get!”

Babies!!! That cake looked so lovely and *delicious*, I don’t blame you for having three pieces. πŸ™‚ I also love the photo of the dad baby bellies haha. What a fun time!

Love them all, especially Pongo! Adorable!

So cute!!!

When I have kids, I’ll teach them to charge more than that.
AHAHA! You go girl!

Just bleach pen out the cent sign. That should be about right. πŸ˜‰

Awesome photos!

Great Photos! The dog photo is awesome. He was totaling posing πŸ™‚

No offense to the ladies, but I love the photo of Pongo the best! I so want to cuddle!

Oh, how precious! I had the distinct honor of attending one of my best friend’s baby showers recently and I had a fabulous time. Tell you’re friend pregnancy definitely suits her! These are beautiful pictures.
