This past week I had the opportunity to mix business with pleasure when I got the chance to do a gender reveal photoshoot for my brother, David, and his wife, Amanda. In the last three years, my two older brothers and I have had 4 boys and I currently have another boy on the way, due in November of 2012. So everyone was very excited to see if the boy streak would continue or if David and Amanda would be the first ones to break it by having a girl this winter!
After their ultrasound, Dave and Amanda did not tell anyone what the gender of the baby was, just that everything looked normal and baby was healthy. Then they had a small party with just immediate family where they announced the gender by giving everyone cupcakes with a pink frosted center.
A few days after the party, I made the trip from Dallas to Cincinnati for a few days and took their gender reveal photos while I was in town. Everyone was really excited about the pink balloons, except for my 2 year old nephew, Trenton. He cried his little eyes out when he saw those pink balloons and may take some convincing that a little sister will be fun! Luckily, by the end of the session he was a bit happier and seemed to have adjusted to the idea a bit more.
Amanda and I created some custom photo cards to send out to her close friends and she then mailed about 50 cards out to her friends and family. 2 days later, we had a big reveal on Lovely Fitzgerald’s Facebook page, letting the rest of the world know that Dave and Amanda finally broke the boy streak in our family!!! Everyone is super excited and we all can’t wait to welcome a little girl to the family in December of 2012. I am sure she will be spoiled rotten!
