oh baby! on the lake turns one!

September 15, 2015

We celebrated oh baby!’s first birthday in Wayzata with free portraits and sweet treats.

oh baby! was a happy place to be over the weekend (as always!) 

On September 13, oh baby! on the lake celebrated it’s first birthday in Wayzata with a celebration for happy families in the area. Lake Street was abuzz with anticipation for the afternoon’s parade, which culminated the weekend’s celebrations of the 41st Annual James J. Hills Days Festival.

Little ones of all ages stopped in for cookies and cupcakes and stayed for a free portrait session with newborn, children and families photographer extraordinaire Meghan Elizabeth (Meghan Elizabeth Photography), who has made a name for herself in the Twin Cities thanks to her knack for capturing those blissful newborn moments on film. With so many families in the lakefront store, the afternoon had a magical feel —classic oh baby! items, including layered tutus and sparkly headbands, were tried on for photos and the store was a very happy place to be. As more and more fall items trickle into the stores, we were excited for the chance to show off some of our favorite new arrivals, including oh baby! brand fur pom-pom stocking caps, one-piece cable knit jumpsuits by Egg and jean jackets sure to get your little through fall in style.

oh baby! General Manager Lindsey Glowa has been at the Wayzata store since June. She planned the event as a way to foster a sense of community amongst oh baby! shoppers. “It was fun to get our customers together for a lighthearted day of pictures, mom talk, and fashion. I want oh baby! to be a place where parents are inspired to be creative with their little ones, whether it be by our clothes and décor, or the community we build amongst fellow shoppers that often bump into each other at the store.”

Take a look at some of our favorite snaps from the day’s celebrations!

Part of Meghan's talent is knowing just how to pose newborns for an angelic, peaceful effect. This little one was so content!

How cute is our Shabby Chic headband in white on her little noggin?!
