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 everyone involved!
