Last week Erica and Zach invited their closest friends and family down to Festival Park in downtown Fayetteville to help them reveal the gender of their first baby! I love seeing the creative ways couples choose to announce their joy and this session has become my new favorite! With the help of their friends, squirt guns were secretly filled with the appropriate color (pink or blue!) and handed out to the crowd. Erica and Zach were giddy with nerves and excitement as they held hands and awaited to be doused with love!
I had the pleasure of shouting "READY, AIM, FIRE!" and snapped away as the paint flew by. After a few moments (which I'm sure seemed like an eternity to them!) Erica and Zach opened their eyes and were overjoyed to see themselves covered in blue paint! IT'S A BOY!!! Smiles, laughter, jumping, hugging and dancing ensued. After a few paint covered kisses the couple led their party over to enjoy "sex" cake. By far my favorite cake quote -- "WE ARE HERE FOR THE SEX!"
I loved getting to be apart of such an intimate moment in this young couples lives and document all of the joy and love with their family, friends, and even furry buddies too! I couldn't be happier for Erica and Zach - Congrats! With such a gorgeous and kind duo, I can only imagine what an incredibly beautiful boy you will have.
