Thinking Outside The Box ~ 5 Unique Birth Announcement Ideas You’ll Love!


When my daughter was born (nearly five years ago!) I’m fairly certain the first photos of her that I shared were simply her and I in our bedroom. Her looking just lovely and my face tired but insanely happy. However, I’ve always adored the unique birth announcement photos that I’ve spied via some of my favourite blogs, so today I wanted to share a few that I think are really sweet!

Yawn! This guys doesn’t care about anything but his cozy blanket, but this image is amazing! Thank you to Jagger’s parents for making this happen! Spotted over at Alphabet Monkey.

This gorgeous photo was taken by the talented Brooke Schwab. What a fun way to share all those cute baby details with friends and family! This would be a fun one to repeat with each child. Wouldn’t they look adorable hanging side-by-side on the wall?

Such a sweet juxtaposition. It’s so incredible to think about wee babies inside bellies after they come out — it just seems impossible! Thank you to David, Natalie + Jude for this gorgeous image.


There are so many cute elements in this image — I especially love the date written out in blocks at the bottom and those super smooth river rocks. Check this one out via Going Home To Roost. Love it!


Lastly, this gorgeous image comes to us from By Rosenhoff. Absolutely lovely! Anyone else dying to pat that little guy’s soft hair? Oh how I miss that little baby fluff!

How did you announce the arrival of your little ones? If you have a post on your own blog, feel free to link up in the comments! We’d love to see!

PS. These letterpress announcements are pretty cute too!
