Yesterday, I went over to Jenn and James’ house for a very important photoshoot — a gender reveal of their second baby! Big sister Genevieve is pretty stoked about it, let me tell ya:
Jenn got the secret envelope that said the gender early last week. Somehow, she refrained from looking, and made sure to hide it so her husband wouldn’t peek (he told her he would if he found it).
We called in our friend Alyssa, who is the Queen of Props. She delivered! She brought chalkboards, letter boards, and the item that made the shoot: the confetti cannon!
Jenn had been prepping her husband the entire week that he wasn’t allowed to make a weird face when it was a girl. Everyone was expecting them to have another girl, which is why we got these priceless faces when blue shot out of the cannon!
I seriously don’t think I have ever seen Jenn make that face. She is notoriously bad with surprises, but the look of pure shock on her face is priceless! James thought we for sure accidentally fired the wrong cannon. He kept asking: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
No mistakes here! It was all boy! We also tried to do another fun reveal photo that involved Genevieve dipping her hands in blue ink. You can see how well that went:
It must have been really hard for Jenn to wait, too, because they had the envelope for nearly a week before I was able to make it over there for the shoot. I am proud of their patience! And, capturing this moment was definitely well worth the wait!
We all know Genevieve is going to be the best big sister!
Jenn is due at the end of August! I am not allowed to reveal the name just yet, but it’s adorable. I can’t wait to take photos of Genevieve and her new baby brother!
We’d love to capture your special moment, too! Message us to set up your gender reveal (and don’t forget we are in KC and St. Louis)!
