Baby Love Event 2020|St. Louis & Wash, MO Photographer

February 25, 2020

Thank you to all of the beautiful moms-to-be, who attended our Second Annual Baby Love Event 2020! It was an amazing turnout and so wonderful to meet some new faces and see many existing clients. The beautiful thing about being a photographer that doesn’t specialize in one specific category, I am blessed to see couples for their engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn and baby milestones! In short, we become family!

Spoiling mommas-to-be!

We offered raffles, discounts on newborn photo sessions, a complimentary photo and party favors, which happened to be amazing cookies from Fairytale Cookie Company.  She created a special design just for our Baby Love Event! Her cookies are so pretty and make the best treat for shower guests and future baby birthday parties, so keep her in mind!

Reading to baby is so important!

I can’t say enough good things about our vendors.  Neighborhood Reads donated books and gift certificates – and did you know that they offer baby registries, so you can start filling those bookshelves?  Genius!

For the coffee lovers!

When I reached out to Exit 11, I joked that all new moms need caffeine, and Angie mentioned that their space is actually available to rent for baby showers!  Plus, their drive-thru location is great when you don’t want to get baby out of the car.  I’m guilty of that!  Sometimes I load baby up, just to drive thru – it’s that good, and makes perfect sense when I need their coffee!

Gift baskets for new parents!

Our next donation was from IB Nuts, and I was so impressed with their overflowing inventory! This is the perfect place to pick up snacks for new parents when they are still in the hospital or when they get home and need something to munch on! Thank you Holly for your generous basket and gift card!
