You’re having a baby – congratulations! Those first few days or weeks when just you and your spouse know about the little bundle of joy is a beautiful, intimate time. But when you’re ready to spread the word, planning your pregnancy announcement is a lot of fun.
Whether you’re telling your parents and relatives, close friends or everyone you’re connected with online – check out these pregnancy announcement photo, card and gift ideas from the Costco Photo Centre.
The Ultrasound Photo Shoot
The black and white ultrasound photo is a beautiful memento of your pregnancy – but you can do more than just pass it around or share a photo of it to spread the news. Parents can create a memorable pregnancy photo shoot by holding the ultrasound print over your baby bump in sentimental maternity photos. For a unique perspective, have the ultrasound tucked into dad’s back pocket as he looks toward mom holding her belly. Surprise your loved ones with the “We’re Expecting” photo shoot prints and turn the best photo into a canvas print for nursery décor that your family will admire for years to come.
Send Baby Pregnancy Announcement Cards: Fun or Classic
Turn your pregnancy announcement into a memorable moment for your circle of loved ones with surprise cards. Customize premium baby cards with your expecting announcement and photo for a keepsake that they can open with excitement. If you already have children, create a fun photo shoot with the kids as they brace themselves for a new sibling. Create a cute photo op as they hold signs saying, “Soon to be Big Brother/Sister” with your due date, or show off your family’s unique sense of humour with a fun message, like an “Only Child: Expires March 2018” sign.
A Miniature Version of You
An adorable baby pregnancy announcement photo is one that reveals that a smaller version of you is on the way. Show that your family is growing by photographing an item that’s relevant to you and your spouse, big and small:
Your eye glasses, your spouse’s glasses, and a pair of baby glasses in between
Strike a pose on your adult bicycles looking back at a little tricycle behind
Clip a baby onesie onto your clothing line between mom and dad’s outfit
Make Your Announcement with Photo Gifts
When announcing a pregnancy, nothing beats the reaction from your moms and dads. Unveil your exciting surprise by customizing a photo gift for your parents – like a custom calendar – with some of your favourite photo ideas. Make it look like a generic gift by subtly sneaking your pregnancy announcement photos into the calendar amongst a range of ordinary family photos. Once they stumble across the “Due Date” – they’ll catch on to your ruse.
Whether it’s their first grandchild or their fifth, celebrate by giving your parents a baby announcement they’ll always remember.
