Well I can honestly say that this was one of the highlights of my career. My amazing studio stylist, Ashley, told me a few weeks ago that her loving family was about to grow again- probably for the last time- with baby #4! Since they are *planning* on this being the last one, we all wondered a major thing: will they be 4/4 with all boys or will Baby Price #4 be a girl?
Ashley had a blood test done and somehow managed to not tear open the results in the envelope- despite all of her nervousness and excitement! I told her to give me the envelope and that I would happily set them up with a surprise so the entire family could find out together what the final Price sibling would be.
I literally teared up opening the envelope to find a little pink piece of paper saying it would be a girl. I HAD to make this a fun experience for them!
So after waiting 72 agonizing hours, my pink butterfly confetti guns (biodegradable and eco-friendly of course) and my letter boards were all ready to go. Ashley's husband has been one of my close friends since high school and I couldn't even make eye contact with him when we pulled into the parking lot of Chagrin River Park to go play in the snow.
Seeing their genuine, loving, and excited reactions is easily one of the most rewarding and proud moments I've had in quite awhile. We have had hundreds of fun moments, outings, shoots, and events happen in the last 20+ years, but this was definitely one of my favorite moments as I've watched their family grow.
I can't wait to welcome this little bundle into the world! Congratulations some of my closest friends on the upcoming addition to the family!
