Los Angeles

See You Later, Ali-Gator!


My dear friend Ali is due to give birth to her first baby (a boy) in the next week or so. We’ve been friends since junior high and I am blessed to have her in my life after all these years. (You may remember her from these engagement and wedding photos.) Last month, I was honored to attend and shoot her baby shower in Los Angeles.

Even though she wasn’t asking for it, I insisted on taking a few maternity portraits. I mean, come on! She’s never looked better. It’s so not fair! She is the epitome of glowing, pregnant mama-to-be and I won’t even tell you how insanely calm and collected she is in regards to the life-altering changes that are about to take place. Ali, you never cease to amaze me! I’m super excited for her and her husband, Mike, and I feel so lucky to be able to capture these celebrated moments in their lives.

The baby shower was held at Edendale Restaurant in Silverlake. Note the alligator shaped loaves from Boudin Bakery in San Francisco.
