I used to loathe baby and bridal showers. I would think up excuses not to attend them. But now I look forward to them. I don’t know if a switch just went off in my head or if I finally started to realize I’m good at the games, but I do, I look forward to playing silly games and watching one person open a heap of presents.
And there’s always cake. The cake never fails me.
When Julie asked me to photograph her sister Amy’s bridal shower, I was all over it. Fun girls to spend time with, fun games to watch people play and the idea of seeing Amy all smiles, I couldn’t pass it up. And, of course, there was cake.
Amy seriously has one of the best smiles, one of the best laughs and one of the best senses of humor.
I feel lucky to know Amy and Julie. Together, they make it time fly.

Best wishes to the bride as she continues to countdown to the big day. My one piece of advice is to kiss one another, often and long. Goodbye and goodnight kisses can make or break a day or dream. Good luck, Amy – you’ll make a beautiful bride!
