Cameron's Birth Announcement

I did a newborn shoot and designed a card to go out for his Birth Announcements.
It has been about 6 weeks so all of his announcements have made it to friends and family and I am not going to spoil any surprises by posting now. He is such a cutie!!
Oh, the baby smell.....

Here is Cameron, he was 6 days old.
The Front

It was designed to be a 5x7 card. This way the back was a large 5x7 photo that filled the card. Perfect for family to frame.
The Back

Of course with him as my model, how could they go wrong.
I am busy booking shoots and working on designing some Christmas Cards.
Hope you have a Happy Thursday!

BTW... we are almost at 400 subscribers. Must be Freebie time? =)

What a cute little guy. Nothing like the smell of a baby. I get to go help my daughter in October with her new son when he is born. There is nothing like the smell of a new baby. Love your work. You are a spectacular photographer. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kimi--this is amazing! I recently designed a birth announcement for my brother and his wife's new little baby girl...but I LOVE your idea of the back being a full photo! SO clever!

Kimi, beautiful job! He is so adorable! I just love the smell of a baby, when aI hold a baby now it sure takes me down memory lane. They grow up so fast! Thanks for sharing!

Debbie said...

This card is amazing. Well done photos and design. One question for anyone to answer. How do you print something like this double sided card. At home? or a photo lab?
Thanks for any help

Serious level of gorgeous here! Both the photos and the card. Great work. I have a six month old and none of my photos are of this caliber :)

Absolutely beautiful, Kimi :) I hope you don't mind, but you have inspired me to make a birth announcement for my new granddaughter, Amelia Ann.

My DIL is being induced tomorrow and Amelia will be born on Sept 4th or 5th -- I'm so excited, as this will be first time to be a "gammy!"

Thanks for the inspiration :)

I think this is the nicest announcement I have ever seen. It is beautiful. And I really like the photo on the back idea.

Kimi, I love that announcement. You did an excellent job on the photograpy and the announcement. Would you be willing to share the template?

I am actually working on a site to sell some of my designs. I am just a little lost on how to get it all set up.

the birth announcement will be in there.
