a shower for baby jackson - clayton nc event photograph

i just realized i'll be photographing little 7-week-old jackson on wednesday and i haven't posted images from the baby shower yet!!

i was so lucky to have moved back to nc in time to make mommy denise's baby shower.  denise and i go way back... yes we are distant cousins (this is johnston county ya know) but we have been great friends ever since i can remember!!  i remember spending the night growing up (and denise hogged the whole bed... this still a problem taylor?), watching the scary movie "so i married an axe murder" (yes it's a comedy, but we thought it was a horror movie at the time), mom making sure she had boiled okra on the dinner table if denise was going to be over for dinner (who in this world eats this slimy substance besides denise!?)... i could go on with so many fond memories!

sometimes i feel like i have to pinch myself when i think about our age and where we are in life.  i feel to young for us both to have been married for 5 years this july!!  (happy anniversary you lovebirds)  but i love seeing someone i love so much so happy.  denise seems to have a wonderful husband, taylor, and two adorable children!!

so the shower was very fun.  so many of these girls i had seen in photos with denise over the years and it was wonderful to meet them finally.  we played an interesting candy bar game... i think i got one question right.  haha.  the home was beautifully decorated and denise was just beaming.  she makes such a pretty pregger chick!

here are a few pics from the baby shower... stay tuned for pics of baby jackson soon too!  :)

look at these nifty napkins folded into shirts!!! 

golf ball favors!

some of the cutest invitations i've ever seen!!! 

even little caroline got gifts... she is a big sister now!!! 

denise had been wearing her corsage upside down... and who was it that put that on for her!?

and who said little boys didn't get cute clothes too?!??! 

isn't it priceless to receive handmade gifts... something to treasure.

well looky there!  a newborn session from brp!

denise getting a peek at those golf balls for the first time... they have jackson's name on them!

i have no words for how cute this is.
