I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.
This shoot last week was SO fun! I was completely honored when Natalie asked if I would capture the moment her and Jesse found out whether their little bundle is a boy or a girl. It’s the first time I’ve gotten to shoot a gender reveal and I was ecstatic!
For some reason, I didn’t realize that I’d be the one in charge of picking the right balloon to give them. Talk about pressure! Thankfully, when I opened the envelope, I didn’t have to try to figure out what I was looking at in the ultrasound photo. There was a plain as day, English word written at the top. After quadruple checking that I was handing over the appropriate balloon, it was time to find out!
There’s no anticipation quite like the anticipation of holding a balloon that contains blue or pink confetti and having someone in front of you clicking a shutter button! I was dying inside, and I can’t imagine how Jesse and Natalie felt!!!
We counted down from five (which was the longest five seconds of ALL OF OUR LIVES) and then Jesse went for it!
Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with this moment! I can’t even begin to say how happy I am for the two of you!!!
A huge Thank You to Zurie Studio for having us!
