I knew Meredith and I would be friends when I asked her if I looked pregnant yet and she started yelling and burst into tears. Definitely one of the more memorable reactions to my pregnancy announcement!
So when Meredith announced that she and her husband were expecting a baby in September, I squealed and vibrated with excitement. We talk almost daily about baby planning and pregnancy, and it’s awesome to see the daily changes of a friend’s pregnancy.
Meredith’s baby shower was held on June 29, 2013 at the Schuyler Meadows Country Club in Loudonville. The clubhouse is absolutely GORGEOUS and the hostesses, Meredith’s mother and sisters, executed the decorations and menu perfectly.
Baby Nolan received wonderful gifts, especially anything “elephant” to match his nursery.
You may figure that Meredith looks this beautiful and polished because it’s her baby shower, but it’s a LIE! She actually looks like this EVERY SINGLE DAY.
After the shower, I took a few shots of the parents to be. These kids are madly in love. They laugh (with and at each other), and you can easily catch a glimpse of one giving lovey eyes while the other is looking away.
Both insisted on having a “formal” portrait taken, presumably to hang above their living room mantle.
Of course, I refused to leave before I took a few solo shots of the lovely mom-to-be, even if that meant making her climb a flight of stairs!
