spa bridal shower

I’m so excited to share with you this bridal shower I shot that’s currently featured in Bridal Guide magazine.  Pick it up on newsstands now to read the full 3 page article!

Before I go into the amazing shower details, let me just tell you how amazing the bride-to-be, Emily, is.  She’s the most positive person I’ve ever met.  Emily and I had our first baby around the same time, and I remember while shooting her newborn, I was feeling a little blue about how fast Cameron had been growing.  I said something along the lines of feeling sad that one day Cameron is going to meet someone and leave me.  She said, “I hope [my son] finds someone he really loves, and who really loves him too.”  That just put everything back to perspective for me, and there has been several profound moments like that where she just made me feel better.  Someone this amazing deserves to be pampered as you’re about to see.

Emily was getting ready to marry the love of her life in Hawaii, so a tropical feel was the perfect prep for her destination wedding.  The very awesome Carolyn of The Special Day planned this – she wanted everyone to feel like they were at a luxurious spa.

Guests were pampered with manicures and pedicures!  …this is a shower I want to attend!

Gorgeous flowers by Mille Fiori.

DELICIOUS catering by Good Gracious Catering.

And the awesome desserts by none other than Esther Kang of Batch from Scratch and MasterChef season 2 contestant.

Amazing shower, right?  Big thanks to Carolyn for bringing me on this fabulous team!

Lately, I’ve gotten a few complaints that I don’t post enough photos of Cameron.  I’m just never sure how much people care to see… I would totally be one of those parents who open up their wallet and a plastic accordion photo holder (remember those?) unfolds to the ground.  But these past few weeks have been huge milestones for him and I feel the need to share a glimpse into his life.  This is his day-to-day life behind closed doors:


Okay, just kidding.  It’s more like:


He just turned 7 months old and now crawls!  He can also pull himself up to stand, and even cruise a few steps.  And just last night, his first tooth cut through!  It was a rough month for him in terms of changes – so many new things came to him all at once!  But he loves his new ability to get around… and chase our doggies.  And I’m sure he’ll love making use of that tooth too.
