Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Photographer || Baby Hendricks is Brewing - Average Joe's

It was just last September when Lindsay and Mark got married. It wasn't too long after until baby Hendricks was officially announced! I was over the moon excited when Lindsay emailed me and told me! I have been counting down the days until Jon and I got to find out the gender of their baby and photograph this awesome baby shower!

Lindsay, Mark and their loved ones are such event creatives! You might remember their paint war party (Hosted as a way to have their bridal party get to know each other.) or their carnival themed wedding day. But this baby shower theme was brilliant. I love co-ed baby showers. The traditional way is becoming overdone, exclusive and I think the 'Baby is Brewing' theme was a brilliant way to make guys feel comfortable at a baby shower and make a baby shower more relaxed and fun for everyone!

Lindsay and Mark had different stations that guests could independently participate in while socializing, be eating and drinking (yes there was soda and other choices for the mom-to-be and guests!) They had really awesome games too! I loved when Lindsay pulled a plot twist and measured Mark's belly instead of hers haha! The best game was the Wheel of Fortune game that helped reveal that Mark and Lindsay were having a BOY! The little mister's name was revealed too! Porter James Boxill Hendricks. He's going to be such a handsome little man. I can not wait until he arrives! There are so many people that love him so much already!

Greatest of all, it's incredible and such an honor to get to see Mark and Lindsay grow together. I loved watching them open gifts and start to imagine life with a sweet baby of their own. <3
