As with our pregnancy announcement photo, the standard social media post of a grainy ultrasound picture wouldn’t cut it. The same went for our baby’s gender reveal. I wanted to create a fun and attractive image to share this exciting news with friends and family. On top of that, my wife was so thrilled with the pregnancy announcement that she wanted a gorgeous photo to capture each milestone of the pregnancy.


After a lot of brainstorming that included soccer balls, clotheslines of socks and anything blue, I thought – let’s just keep it clean and simple. Using quintessential boy toys, we created a shot that went well with our original announcement and paired it with a fun hand-drawn message. The photo was a big hit with family and friends and many are already asking about the next set in the series. My wife can’t wait until the photos are framed and on the wall.
