If you are having a gender reveal party you could get your guests involved by asking friends and family to wear blue or pink depending on what they think the gender will be. This is a fun idea that will look great in photos and create a talking point amongst the guests.
For a photoshoot, neutral outfits look great on camera and you and your partner can match in similar tones.

Perhaps the dad can wear pink and the mum can wear blue, or you can coordinate in matching slogan t-shirts.

Enjoy the experience of revealing your baby’s gender and have fun with your partner, family, and friends. Your photographer will be able to capture the event perfectly and create some everlasting memories for you to look back on and cherish.
