Baby shower themes

When I heard that my friend Ania was expecting a baby boy, I knew that we had to do a photo shoot (it’s kind of our thing).  Ania is a graceful person and in her professional life, she represents glamorous products, so only elegant would do.   I began thinking of baby shower themes but was coming up empty until I asked Ania to think of Polish songs or stories that she remembered as a child.  She sent me a link to Julian Tuwim’s –Lokomotywa (The Locomotive) and that’s what set the wheels in motion, so to speak.  This is just a taste of things to come.  Pop back soon for more baby shower inspiration.

Thank you to my friends at Kensington Riverside Inn for hosting us and to Lea Romanowski from Designing on the Edge for bringing The Locomotive to life.
