When Rob and Rebekah found out they were having a boy AND a girl, they were anxious to share their awesome news with creativity and class. They hired professional photographer Melissa Shumwayto document their gender reveal, but weren’t quite sure the direction they wanted to take with their big announcement. They scoured Pinterest looking for ideas, but were met largely with cheesy belly kissing, balloon popping, and outplayed cake cutting. Yet, when Melissa found Color Blaze Color Powder, on Pinterest everyone was excited about the possibilities of this twins gender reveal photo shoot! They did some research and found the color powder was super safe for both mom and babies, while also being environmentally friendly for their outdoor shoot in the Arizona desert.
They ordered the Color Blaze Gender Reveal package that included 2 five-pound bags of color powder, one of blue and one of pink. They filled small plastic cups of color and tossed them in the air to reveal the pink and blue clouds of color. Melissa organized the shoot by planning some clearly directed poses and throws, but quickly the event escalated into a full-blown color war! Rob and Rebekah were covered in color from head to toe and their cheeks were sore from laughing!
We are so excited for this sweet family that will soon double in size! Thank you Rob and Rebekah for sharing these precious moments with the Color Blaze team. Also, many thanks to the talented Melissa Shumwaywho captured the messy magic of what looks like a very fun day!
