Making the Announcement

Being the 'photographer' that I am I, of course, was dead set on doing my own newborn photos and announcement for her birth.  The trouble is that being the new mom that I am I didn't realize how daunting of a task that would actually be.  Somehow I managed to squeeze in a few minutes with my camera while Emily somehow cooperated and captured a couple of decent photos.  She was six days old then.  Its taken me three weeks to edit the four photos and put together an announcement for her birth.  Now she is almost out of the newborn stage and I am wishing that I had more professional looking photos than just the few I took. 

Its not the end of the world.  My iPhone is littered with several dozens of photos I snap of her throughout the day.  Plus, I still have endless opportunities to take photos of her when my energy returns (read as: when I can sleep more than two hours at a given time).  At least I have some photos to remember her tiny cuteness!  

So, here is the announcement I spent several days working on...



I didn't create the template/design myself.  It was free and I stumbled on it through a google search.  Here is the link in case you are interested in the template yourself.  There is also an identical one for a boy, in boy colors.

Don't be so hard on yourself! That photo is wonderful. And photographing newborns and babies is a task, no matter how good of a photographer you are. Enjoy your time with your little one, take photos when you can, and you'll be surprised, when you look back in a few years, how good they are, regardless of the camera, lighting, etc, because of who the subject is.

You did an outstanding job on her announcement, and the photo is awesome. She is the cutest, and I love the "ready to take on the world" look in her eyes. She is beautiful!!

You made a beautiful birth announcement for little Emily. When she is grown I am sure she will be pleased that you did it yourself.
