Melanie + Alex | Gender Reveal

Melanie and Alex are one of my favorite couples ever. These two just radiate love and happiness anytime I’m around them! A few months ago a took their one year anniversary photos which you can find linked HERE or at the bottom of the blog post!

From day one, we all hit it off and have kept in touch on Facebook, and I was beyond THRILLED when Melanie messaged me to cancel a photo shoot we had been planning, to request a pregnancy announcement session instead!!!! I am so so happy for her and Alex! Melanie works are a nanny and has experience with children, so I have no doubt that she’ll be the most perfect mother EVER.

She chose Yorktown Beach as the location and had come up with a balloon reveal. Her aunt and uncle put the gender reveal balloon together a day before the session, so her and Alex had no idea what to expect!  

Scroll through the images so see what they’re having!!  

A BOY!!! They had secretly hoped for a boy, and I was soooo excited to see that balloon pop BLUE! I loved their reactions and Melanie was over-the-moon excited!!  Our session was seriously so much fun and I cannot wait to photograph Melanie’s maternity photos in the winter!

Melanie & Alex- I love you guys!! CONGRATULATIONS! 🎉
