Since I missed the boat on announcing my pregnancy and then disappeared for a year, I thought it would be fun as my first real post back to compile a super cute collection of fun photo ideas to announce a pregnancy. (I’m not pregnant now, I was pregnant last year). Some people are so creative! These photos would make such an amazing keepsake for the child to be!
Vintage Baby Blocks Announcement: This one is simple, but classic. Baby blocks are a really sweet way to get the message across.
Promoted To Big Brother Announcement: If I was more organized, I would have done something like this. Don’t you think this little guy is super cute with his spiked hair?
Plus One Chalkboard Announcement: Ah, young love. I’m pretty sure I’d be having trouble smiling like that if it was taken during morning sickness.
Sidewalk Balloon Chalk Announcement: I couldn’t find a source for this one, other than Pinterest. Which is too bad, because I think it might be my very favourite! The balloons are so sweet, and the little girl is posing so nicely. I’m not sure either of my girls would have sat still long enough to capture this, but it totally would have been worth it to try!
Two Hand Two Hearts Twins Announcement: I love this idea of announcing twins. One heart over each of the babies using both parents’ hands. The picture has so much love in it!
Small Shoes We’re Expecting Announcement: Another tiny pair of shoes for the announcement. So cute!
One New Mini Chair Announcement: The older sibling photos are so adorable! Sit your cute little toddler in a chair and put an empty chair beside her with a sign on it to announce a second baby.
One More Empty Chair To Fill: Cute announcement for baby number FIVE. Another empty chair, this time with a balloon tied to it to announce the next baby. FIVE. Yikes.
Not A Flu, But A Baby Announcement: This one is so true it hurts. Not the best photography, but I love the look on the husband’s face.
New Player Joining The Game Announcement: This is a cute way for any gamer to announce a pregnancy. It’s a cute idea, without being over the top cheesy.
Movie Poster Parenthood Announcement: The movie poster announcements are getting really popular. If you have a little bit of graphic design talent, these are a really fun way to make the announcement. Is it bad that if this was a movie I’d totally watch it?
Movie Poster Baby Boy Announcement: Here’s another beautiful movie poster pregnancy announcement. This is the first one I ever saw on Pinterest, so it might be the one that started the craze.
More Laundry Expected Announcement: Tiny baby clothes are almost as cute as tiny shoes. You could do lots of different variations with this idea.
Middle Child No More Chalkboard Announcement: Again, if I had been more organized, I would have loved to do this with my third pregnancy. Toddlers giving attitude to the camera are so cute!
Little Pumpkin Announcement: This is great for a fall or Halloween pregnancy announcement. Simple, but beautiful.
Exhausted Dad Announcement: Using dads as props is so much fun, especially when they can really show some good emotion. I can totally feel the dad’s pain in this one!
Every Hero Needs A Sidekick: It’s all about the toddler’s attitude in this one.
Eating For Two, Drinking For Two: This would be so true if my husband was a drinker. I was definitely always eating enough for two… sometimes three or four…
Do The Math Announcement: I love this idea! Do some simple math to explain your growing family. It’s a simple idea, but the photos turn out beautifully!
Crib Eviction Notice: I’m not sure I’d ever do this one, but this poor little girl’s expression is classic. Oh the trials of being an older sibling!
Coffee Mugs and A Bottle Announcement: This is a cute alternative to using baby shoes, for all you coffee drinkers. They should enjoy it while they still have time to drink it.
Big Sister To-Do List Announcement: There are two super important elements of this photo. A checklist in a beautiful frame with a contrasting background. And a super cute outfit for the toddler, that again, contrasts the background and the frame. Love it!
A Bun In The Oven Announcement: I have seen a lot of variations of this one, but it seems to be hard to pull off. This is the best one I could find.
And Then There Were Four Chalkboard Announcement: Another beautiful one with signs and a contrasting background.
Another Shoe In The Family: Another cute one with shoes. I can’t help myself! This time with birth years of all the family members.
Beautiful Chalkboard Crib Announcement: Another gorgeous photo if you have an artist in the family. I’m not sure how this one was done, but the painted crib is so sweet. And the couple really does look excited.
Twins Announcement: This next and final photo is why I don’t plan to get pregnant again. You just can’t plan these things!
