Every couple or family I meet, just makes me realize how blessed I am to be a photographer. I am able to document a part of their life that they will look back on over and over again. When Duncan called, he said he wanted to schedule a maternity session, but not just any maternity session. Duncan and his wife Zoe wanted to document what they were having or also called a gender revealing session.
What is a gender revealing maternity session? Well its when, the parents have no idea what they are having. Duncan and Zoe had the results sealed in an envelope for weeks, but wanted to capture the surprise during their maternity session.
We met at Quicksilver park, and did a few portraits prior to the reveal. I got to know about Duncan, and Zoe both from the UK. You could tell they are super excited to be parents. Duncan and Zoe said from day one they considered their baby to be a “he”. But they had names for both a girl or boy in mind. After some natural portraits we headed to a hill above the park for the reveal. They handed me the envlope and I was to put the corresponding “it’s a girl” or “it’s a boy” balloon in the bag.
I was so excited that I got to know what they were having before they did! This blog post will include all of my favorite images up until the big reveal. They are keeping the gender from family and friends up until the very last moment. So I promised not to spoil it. I can’t wait to meet Duncan and Zoe’s little one. Check back in a few months to find out if they’re having a girl or a boy!
