I have been so excited since the day my close friend Ashlyn sent me a text, asking to photograph her gender reveal. Some of you might know her from either pictures on my Facebook of us together, or because of her cool blog Loves The Find. If you need to know how to do cool DIY projects, or save some money on some really neat finds...she is your go to girl!
For the gender reveal we planned out some of it together. She wanted to do something with ice cream since it is a different. I am all for new things (well besides tasting new food, but that is a whole other blog post)! Ashlyn and I decided to ask Jitterbugs Ice Cream Cafe if they would let us come in and photograph in their shop. First off if you have never been, you need to go! The inside is decorated so cute, the ice cream tastes WONDERFUL, and the staff is super friendly! Here comes where it starts to get funny (well now it is). Ashlyn, her husband Willie, and their daughter Hartley all came to do the session on Friday. Well when one of the staff members and I opened the sonogram the gender of the baby was no where to be found, we looked all over the sonogram. Frustrating huh! Ashlyn, Willie, and I made phone calls to friends, family, talked to clinics and no one was able to give us a 100% answer. Why waste the time on a beautiful day, so we did take some photos of course! Fast forward to today...Tuesday! About FOUR DAYS later! I don't know how Ashlyn, Willie, & their family could stand the wait. I knew I couldn't! We finally got an envelope WITH THE GENDER folks! The staff at Jitterbugs were so excited that we were back and they were able to find out the mystery as well. If you do not know already scroll down near the bottom and find out if the next Howdyshell will be a Boy or a Girl. If you do know, scroll though anyways and take a look at how we revealed the gender in a special way. CONGRATS HOWDYSHELL FAMILY <3 I love you all and I am very excited for you!
SHE OR HE???
Soon to be BIG SISTER...
They can't look while they get the correct color scoop of ice cream out...
DIG IN AND FIND OUT!

Thank you Jitterbugs for letting us use your shop to capture some special moments...
Congratulations again to the three and soon to be four of you! Thank you for letting me capture these photos for you! Ashlyn you look beautiful and I can not wait to meet the next little Howdyshell princess.
