Gender Reveal [Lakeland maternity photography]

So do you remember last month when I shared that very special pregnancy announcement session?  If you haven’t read that blog post, stop what you’re doing and go read it now!  Here’s the link. 🙂 Well, this mama to be then asked me to be a part of their gender reveal.  I’ve done gender reveal sessions before, but none like this.

This sweet couple had an appointment 2 Saturdays ago to get an ultrasound that would tell them if they were having a boy or girl.  Then they asked me to meet up with them for a few minutes to document their actual finding out.  I wasn’t sure how we were going to do this, but mama had it all planned.  We met that afternoon and they handed me an envelope.  Inside the envelope were ultrasound pictures of their baby as well as a note from the ultrasound tech telling them what the sex was.  They didn’t even know!  They had two chalkboards prepared, one pink and one blue.  Mom was going to turn her back to us while I opened the envelope to read the note.  I would then mouth “boy” or “girl” to Daddy, he would pick the appropriate chalk board, and then tell his wife to turn around.  Before we started she was so worried about not having a reaction worthy of pictures.  She didn’t need to worry!

I was shaking when I was opening the envelope.  I was so nervous and it wasn’t even my baby! 🙂  I saw the note, mouthed the word to Daddy, who just kind of stared at me. 🙂 I got a picture of his reaction, then he told his beautiful wife to go ahead and turn around.  Her reaction was priceless!  She started crying, then I started crying, and I could barely see what I was shooting!  🙂 I am so so so incredibly excited for this amazing couple.  It’s real now! 😉

It was my honor and privilege to be a part of such a special moment.  I will always remember this session.  Here are the pics….
