Until today’s party, only the ultrasound tech and the cake baker knew the gender of Heidi and Jeff’s baby. Heidi’s mom gathered about 100 friends and relatives at the beautiful Carriage House restaurant for a gender reveal party. Guests came dressed in ‘Team Pink’ or ‘Team Blue’ clothing. The appetizers were pink and blue-themed, down to blueberry and pink orchid accents on the cheese tray (and including pink and blue cotton candy). The highlight, of course, was the cake cutting. It revealed a layer of blue frosting inside.Oliver is expected around his Christmas Eve due date!
Hi, I’m Ellen, and I love babies. Photographing newborns and expectant moms makes my heart sing, and I’ve been lucky enough to do that for the past 10 years. My style is organic, pure and stylishly simple, focusing on the baby’s beauty and the parents’ love for their new little one.
As a former RN and mother of four, I have lots of experience handling babies and have been asked more than once to use my ‘baby whispering’ skills again at 2 a.m.! I’m a Certified Professional Photographer, traveling to baby’s homes for photography sessions. I live in Kalamazoo, MI and photograph moms-to-be and babies there and in surrounding West Michigan communities.
