Unique and Creative Birth Announcement Photo Ideas

Any expectant mother knows that the process of bringing a baby into this world involves a lot of photos. From the first ultrasound image to the maternity photoshoot, you take a lot of important photos in the 9 months leading up to your baby entering the world. But out of all those photos, the most important are the first ones you take of your baby earthside.

We’ve gathered up some of our favorite birth announcement photos to share with you. Most of these photos can easily be taken from your iPhone. Here’s some tips on how to capture the best photo:

-Lighting is essential to a good photo. Whether you are still in the hospital or taking photos at home, open the windows and let the room fill with as much natural light as possible.

-If needed, you can edit the brightness or saturation of the photo. This can be with a variety of different apps, but I prefer Snapseed.

-If the idea you seriously doubt your photo-taking abilities, hire a professional! You will not regret spending a little extra to have tons of photos of your baby!
