You’re having a baby – congratulations! Those first few days or weeks when just you and your partner 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 idea is a lot of fun.
Whether you’re telling your parents and relatives, close friends or everyone you’re connected to online – check out these baby pregnancy announcement photo, card and gift ideas from the Costco Photo Center.
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 mom's 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: Humorous or Classy
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 humor 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 photo gifts for your parents – like a set of photo mugs or photo plaques – with one of your favorite photo ideas. Whether it’s their first grandchild or their fifth, show your parents how important they already are to your little one with a meaningful baby announcement they’ll always remember.
