Katie's Baby Shower

This past Saturday was my Sister-in-love's baby shower. It was a fantastic event! She is expecting her first daughter, which means I'm expecting my first niece! It means the world to me that she and I are able to walk through this amazing experience at the same time and that our children will be growing up together. She is one of my closest and dearest friends and I am so proud to call her my sister!
Me and Katie
I was also honored to photo-document the entire event!
Here are some of my favorite shots and a slide show to make you feel like you were there! Enjoy!
