My friends Kim and Tim are having a baby this summer! This baby boy will be their first child, and I’m so excited for them. Kim, Tim, and I all used to work together at K12, a curriculum development company in Virginia. Kim and I were officemates and got into all kinds of excellent trouble together… ah, those were the days.
It worked out great that Kim’s current coworkers planned a surprise shower for her on the very same day that she and I had scheduled a maternity portrait session. I surprised her by showing up at her office to photograph her reaction to the party! Afterward we went back to their house to take photos and watch SYTYCD. That’s my kind of night.
Congratulations, Kim and Tim! I can’t wait to meet the little guy!
The baby’s daddy and grandfather are both firefighters, so this was a perfect party theme.
A hug for her husband, whom she hadn’t expected to see at her office!
The onesie says “Locally Grown,” which is perfect because Kim works at the Farm Bureau!
I won’t post too many photos of her baby shower, because I don’t know her coworkers well enough to know if they’d like to show up here. 😉 It was great to meet them that day!
After the shower, Kim gave us a tour of her office. She’s a video editor, and I was awestruck by all the fancy equipment she knows how to operate. I think she was showing me the “play” button here. Yeah, she was probably making fun of me. 😉
Apparently Kim gets paid to play Guitar Hero. I’ve never going to sympathize with her if she ever complains about her job.
OK, on to the portraits, as originally scheduled!
Here Tim is talking to the baby, and Mocha is confused!
We took some photos in the baby’s still unfurnished nursery.
