Product Feature | Our Custom Birth Announcements are included with every newborn session

You've waited 9+ months for your little one to arrive, and now it's time to celebrate!  So many new moms & dads are excited to announce their baby's arrival to the world and start sharing adorable photos of their little bundle of joy.

You could do that with a blurry, poorly lit photo on Facebook and a quick caption.

Or, imagine your loved ones opening up a thick linen envelope and sliding out a beautiful birth announcement that prominently features your baby's name, birthdate, birth stats, and a collection of your favorite professional portraits on thick, luxe paper. 

This card will make it to their fridge and stay there for months, putting a smile on their face every day.  Grandma will probably frame hers, and you'll tuck one away into your baby book and save another in a box with your little one's hospital bracelet and coming home outfit.

While technology is amazing and it lets us share our lives immediately and with so many people at once, there is something truly special about sending "snail mail" and a beautifully postmarked envelope to announce your baby's arrival.  I've even had parents order custom stamps from the post office to match their birth announcements, truly taking this post-baby task to a whole new, beautiful level!

Every single newborn session comes with a set of 25 custom birth announcements, including the envelopes with your address printed on the back.  That takes one more thing off of your to do list, because my job is all about making your life easier when you are home with a newborn baby.

During your gallery reveal appointment we will choose your images for the announcements and review what you want written on them.  Most families include the baby's name, birthdate, birth stats, and a signature.  Some families leave room to write a little note or thank you, and others fill the space with all of their favorite portraits.

I design the announcements and send you a proof of the design, and once you approve the design it's time to send them to print!  It's really that easy!

Then you'll receive your beautifully packaged announcements, and all you have to do is add addresses and a stamp before sharing with friends and family. 

Be prepared for your phone to be buzzing with lots of congratulatory messages from everyone exclaiming about how beautiful your little one is and how much they love these birth announcements -- because they won't soon be forgotten!
