I love photography, and I love babies. So when it came time for me to announce that we were pregnant I started thinking about creative ways to do it. But more importantly, I wanted to do a gender reveal in a creative way. This little one is our fourth, and we are just as excited as we were when it was our first.
So, with no further ado, we are excited to announce that we are expecting a….
We are very excited.
As we were thinking about creative ways to announce the gender of our next addition we started making a list and looking for ways online. Here is a list of 18 ways you can announce your baby’s gender. Let me know which is your favorite! (Click on images to go to original posts or to purchase the items!)
1 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – GLITTER
I love glitter. It is so fun. For us though, bundling up to go outside in negative degree weather didn’t sound like a blast, so we opted for a poster board and spilled glitter. The kids had fun for sure. BUY BOY or GIRL
2 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – BALLOONS
3 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – CAKE
I had a friend last year who was having triplets, and she did a different color cake for each layer to share her gender reveals for her multiples. She had 3 girls! 🙂
4 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – BABY BOOTIES
First of all, I need these for my baby boy, they are just precious. I can’t wait until I get to pull out all of the itty bitty baby items that we have. They are just so sweet. If you click on the photo you can see the various colors at her Etsy shop. Such a cute way to announce gender without the traditional shoe shot. BUY HERE
5 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – PARTY POPPERS
This is awesome. You just have to time it right. I think this would be a great way to announce at a party with family, and have everyone pull their party poppers at the same time. Love this idea! BUY SIMILAR HERE
6 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – BLACK BALLOON & CONFETTI
I love this idea too! I wish it was warmer out so we could have done some serious confetti throwing. But such a fun way to announce. And… also a way that the parent’s don’t know ahead of time. BUY HERE
7 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – SIBLINGS
Big siblings are so excited to find out what their next sibling is going to be. I love this, it is so simple and sweet and totally worth being framed.
8 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – TOP
Every expecting mother needs a few fun pregnancy shirts. I love these! They would be great to wear towards the end of the pregnancy so you aren’t answering the same question all day long. 🙂 BUY CUSTOM SHIRT HERE
9 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – WINTER
It’s fun to announce gender with seasonal things. It makes it a little different. So why not decorate with pink or blue snowflakes for your winter gender reveal?
10 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – SPRING
In spring, there is nothing better than fresh cut flowers. So treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet and snap a photo to announce the news. Then long after everyone else knows, you can still enjoy these beautiful arrangements.
11 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – SUMMER – CHALK
12 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – FALL – PUMPKIN
Are you finding out during the fall? You can get really creative with leafs and pumpkins and other fall decor. I love this one with the baby painted pumpkin.
13 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – PAINT ART
This is seriously my dream gender reveal. Unfortunately for me I always have summer babies, so I find out the gender in winter. With my luck I would end up making a mess before we even started. But it just looks like such a fun gender reveal.
14 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – SCRATCH TICKET
15 – BABY GENDER REVEAL – GIFTS FOR SIBLINGS

Sashes are so elegant. A definite must if you are doing a maternity shoot. 🙂 BUY HERE
