Gillian’s Baby Shower, Beverly Hills
I recently had the honor of documenting Gillian Sheldon’s beautiful baby shower in Beverly Hills. The shower was hosted in the lovely home of her good friends, Leslie and Rich. Gillian is such a warm and loving mommy-to-be, expecting her first baby in mid-September. Her nurturing nature was reflected by all the guests at her shower, who showered her with not only presents but with hugs, good wishes and congratulatory tears as well. Gillian has a diverse background in digital media, television, marketing and PR, and played a major part in the creation and development of TMZ.com – a highly successful site and subsequent television show. She also served as the VP of Programming for SpinMedia before it shut down, overseeing several celebrity and pop culture sites, as well as the personal websites of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Whitney Port, Kendra Wilkinson and Kimora Lee Simmons. When I asked her what her most and least favorite part about pregnancy is, she replied, “Best part about being pregnant is truly having an excuse to get all of my favorite people and those who love and support my little growing family in one room. The feeling that day was so overwhelming – everyone was there with all sorts of love for us and the baby! The worst is the constant tired feeling, and not being able to operate at 100 miles an hour like I am used to doing!” I have no doubt she’ll get back to full speed, excelling in the world of motherhood as well.
