We got our idea for George’s birth announcement from an adorable and popular pin on Pinterest.   We spent two of his naps setting everything up on our dining room table, checking the lighting and camera and then we gingerly lowered him into the photo before he woke up to eat!  It was such a fun project for us to do in those early weeks, so it got me thinking about other cute birth announcements you could accomplish in your own home without a professional there to help.   Here are some other ideas from Pinterest!

The inspiration for our announcement!

You could set up a little scene on your floor and shoot it from above!

Use Photoshop to add cute “handwritten” stats to your favorite photo. Adorable!

I love the simplicity of this announcement! The complete stats could be on the back.

At tinyprints.com, you can turn your own photos into gorgeous announcements. The gray texture and gray background really clean up the look of this photo and would be super easy to accomplish at home.
