Weekend Recap: Baby Shower

This weekend marked another important milestone for my family…my cousin Michelle’s baby shower! This is pretty exciting because Michelle is the first of all my cousins to have a baby! My mom and I headed out to Ohio to celebrate this momentous occasion. It was nice to spend time with my relatives, since the last time I saw them was two years ago at Michelle’s beautiful wedding. As usual when it comes to these important moments, I was more than willing to break out my new camera! Saturday we spent the day walking around town, grabbing lunch, and enjoying the sunshine! Sunday was all about the baby with a beautiful shower at a nearby yacht club. Here are a few of my favorite shots from this weekend!

I loved the headings on the tops of these buildings.

Sometimes it is all about perspective.

It does not get any more patriotic than this!

A trip would not be complete without a shot of the falls. This is also the spot where Jeff proposed to my cousin Michelle three years ago!

After spending all day wandering around town, my family was exhausted. Spending an evening in with wine and steaks was the perfect way to unwind and catch up. I love that my family does not always have to be doing something, instead some of my favorite moments are when we just sit at the kitchen table and chat. It has been almost two years since I saw this side of my family so it was wonderful to just hang out together before the baby shower festivities! Sunday afternoon was the actual shower and I couldn’t help myself and became the photographer for the day!

Overall it was a wonderful weekend! It is crazy to think how much has changed over the years; it truly feels like yesterday that Michelle was walking down the aisle. I cannot wait to find out the sex of the baby (she wants it to be a surprise!) My money is on a baby boy, but only time will tell!
