Last weekend before I went on vacation I had the chance to attend Daphne’s baby shower at the new Holiday Inn in Christiansburg (it was really beautiful in there!). It had an amazing animal theme with huge stuffed animals everywhere. Daphne and Jeremy need a zoo to house their new collection of lions, tigers, bears, and giraffes. Her mom spent so much time setting everything up and working, she did a really great job! Daphne tie dyed the onesies that are hanging over the door in the first photo, aren’t they gorgeous? Dad-to-be Jeremy had made a shirt to match one of the oneies.
There was a onesie decorating station where guests were encouraged to decorate a special onesie for the baby. We played the string game where you cut a piece of string guessing how big mama’s belly is – I won, I’m undefeated for every baby shower I’ve ever been to! I loved the ultrasound cake and French Marigold seed favors so much. And I have seen quite a few diaper cakes before, but the little monkey riding a motorcycle made of diapers was a first for me, so cute. More photos from Daphne’s baby shower are up on my Facebook page if you are interested!

It was New Years Eve at the Virginia Tech Duck Pond and the wind was blowing, hard. I met up with the Buchanan family for the most super-micro-mini maternity photo session of all time, we were out there for all of about 10 minutes before we couldn’t take the cold any more. Even the nice quilt that they brought along was no match for the wild winds. Thankfully little Mr. Micah was a good sport and let us get a few shots before shouting “COLD!” in protest. The Buchanan’s are expecting their second child (a girl, yay!) in February. You can see a couple more photos from our session on the Holly Cromer Photography Facebook page.
This maternity session has been a long time coming and with only a couple more weeks before this little bean (they chose not to find out if it will be a little fella or little lady) makes their grand entrance! I was so excited that when I tried to pick these flowers for Danielle I accidentally pulled up the roots too.
Danielle was absolutely glowing and cracked me up with the mustaches left over from her wedding. We had an absolute blast with our photo excursion at Bisset Park in Radford. I can’t wait to meet her new addition in a few weeks!
