When one of the city’s top wedding photographers turns the tables and starts planning events instead of photographing them, amazing things can happen, as Sarah Schmitz found out at her November 7, 2010, baby shower. Sarah is both an associate photographer and a good friend of Christine Gallagher, of Christine Gallagher Photography. When the camera-toting mama-to-be announced her pregnancy, Gallagher immediately offered to throw the shower and set to planning. She hosted the baby shower at her own house, inviting Sarah’s family and friends over for brunch to celebrate the pregnancy. Sarah was keeping the sex of the baby (and possible names) under wraps, so Christine knew she didn’t want to focus the party on traditional pinks and blues. Instead, she chose a bright and cheerful palette of aqua, mustard and white and kept the celebration light-hearted and whimsical. Photographer Kristen Alexander was on hand throughout to capture memories for the happy guest of honor.
