It just can't be helped. No matter where I go, I always end up in my favorite place...behind the camera. But when the event is something as sweet as a baby shower for a close friend, I'm more than happy to serve as photog!
Shonda looked absolutely stunning in a yellow dress that seemed to be made for her. Don't forget the coordinating high heels and nail polish! Amazing.
English professor that she is, guests were asked to bring a book to donate to Baby Stevens' bookshelf. The books were to be children's books that had a special meaning to each guest.
Baby Stevens is dubbed Baby Monster by his mommy, as during one of the ultrasounds, he appeared to swipe his hand at the camera. His hand-swipe action reminded Shonda of the little boy, Max, in his monster pajama's from the book Where the Wild Things Are. And the nickname "Baby Monster" was affectionately born.
I brought my favorite monster book from my childhood: The Monster at the End of this Book, starring Grover of Sesame Street. I know she will do the book justice with a dramatic reading to her little one, just like my mommy did for me.
All in all, it was a wonderful little get together to honor a very special lady and her growing baby belly. Congratulations, Shonda! We cannot wait for the arrival of your sweet pea!
