::Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower:: Toronto Lifestyle Photography

Danielle and her husband are expecting their first baby in October and recently, I was invited to photograph her baby shower.  And it wasn’t just any baby shower, it was an Alice in Wonderland inspired, completely designed and orchestrated by Danielle’s close friend, Shannon.  There were so many bright and cheery details that were captured. During the celebration, guests sipped on a variety of home-made teas, and nibbled on delicate and delicious creme puffs made by the mom-to-be’s Bubbe Berman.  And what is a Alice in Wonderland celebration without some beautifully elegant porcelain teacups?!

Danielle had no idea that I was going to be there, which made the surprise that much better.   Shannon and I had a fantastic time collaborating on the surprise months previous.  When Danielle walked in and, caught me right as I was shooting the details.  Busted.  We had such a good laugh!

Guests played the “how big is her belly” game. There were lots of different sizes, and of course – lots of laughs!

Danielle had a few extra little friends there. Doesn’t she look like a pro?

And saving my favourite photo until the end. Thank you Shannon for having me! And Danielle, I hope you love the photos!

AnnaMaria - Mary,

After looking at my cousins family session (session of loveliness) I am even more impressed. Your ability to capture the true essence of the moment is so AMAZING! I am so impressed with how none of the pictures present ‘stuffiness’ and that ‘same-old, same-old’feeling.

Your work is delightful and refreshing! I look forward to seeing the next set of photos.
