Photo and Letterpress Birth Announcement

Custom birth announcements are a lovely way to introduce your wee one to your friends and family near and far. Although nowadays the news of a new baby does travel much faster, they still make a beautiful keepsake. This photo birth announcement with letterpress printed and diecut card will make a lovely framed memento for his grandparents to cherish.

It's not always easy to get such a beautiful photo of a newborn baby... sometimes they need a few days to recover from their entry into the world. Usually when a birth announcement arrives with a really cute baby picture, the baby is more than a month old and the announcements went out later rather than sooner. I used to prepare expectant mothers planning for a photo announcement (especially when they were admiring announcements of smiling babies) for the possibility that they may have to wait a little longer for the photo op.

This photo, however, was taken on Cameron John's birthday.
