Many of you have seen Lauren and Daniel’s beautiful wedding, so you’ll know I was so excited when they called and said not only were they expecting, but they wanted me to shoot their gender reveal photos! The got their entire furry family involved, with dogs, cat getting into the act! We had so much fun with the animals, colored candy, and a variety of paint, glitter, flower petals and more.

Lauren is so creative! These pink candies were a fabulous touch.

Their dogs were fully decked out for the occasion. Do you just love the pink bow tie and tutu?? And the SIGN.

This one looks a little sad.

The dogs weren’t the only ones with special outfits.

I adore this, although it makes me sad… Here you see a framed photo of their engagement session, with their dogs. One of their dogs had passed away recently, and they used this very photo from the engagement session as the basis for this fantastic painting.

Lauren also filled some of these huge round balloons (I love these!) with different kinds of confetti.

This might be my favorite part: Since they had already chosen a name, some of the confetti was in the form of the baby’s name. So sweet!
