Baby Shower

I got to know Hannah when I moved down to CA this past fall because she is the manager of the coffee shop I work for.  Hannah worked nearly every morning at the shop, so naturally she was well known (and loved) among all the regulars.  Little side note, my coffee shop is filled with fiercely loyal customers who are so friendly and care for all the baristas; we are really blessed.  Well when many of the customers found out that Hannah was pregnant, they showered her with baby gifts, and a few even attended her baby shower.

This was my first baby shower to photograph, and I came into it with more of a photo-journalistic kind of approach rather than directing people to get the shot I want.  It's so difficult trying to get candid photos of people some time when you're sticking a camera in their face, so this was great practice for learning how to be more in the background capturing the moments rather than interrupting them.

Thanks Steffenie and Malia for putting this on and for letting me share these photos Hannah!
