Last weekend was delightfully eventful! I flew to Chicago to photograph a fun wedding and threw our dear friends the best.baby.shower.ever! (Remember their diy paper pop-up invitations?) I’m still bowing down to the best little helper friends a girl could ask for! Without your help, this could not have happened. The day was full of love, laughter, gourmet potluck goodies, handmade details and rain while cozing up fireside at Suzanne Cummings Flowers. Nat and Jeff, Cheers to your first little baby kiwi girl! You and her will be loved forever, from Auntie Edyta.

I included a diy paper book plate in the guests’ invitations so that they could write a note to Baby Kiwi on the inside front cover of their favorite baby/kids book for her future library. It was a surprise for Nat and Jeff! A big thank you to the Mom’s of the parents-to-be for the adorable baby photos of the two of them!
