Who doesn’t love a pillow fight?!? And when the end result is revealing the sex of the baby in your belly? It’s a magical and creative gender reveal!
Here’s how it worked, mama-to-be brought me a sealed envelope from her doctor’s office which included the baby’s sex. Spoiler alert – they’re having a BOY! It was so exciting to be the first person to open the envelope! I felt so honored to be trusted with the secret. I was able to get the appropriate amount of blue feathers to stuff the pillows with in advance of the shoot. Then, I got to sit back with my camera while the family engaged in a playful pillow fight. Tears came as the sky filled with blue feathers. I’m a little biased because I happen to have two boys myself but I’m so happy for this lovely family and that their son gets a little brother soon!
Quick notes for any of you planning this from Pinterest. (1) If you don’t have a lot of time to order feathers in advance, feather boas work; and (2) Bring a cordless vacuum to the session for clean up. It does make a beautiful mess!
