The Pregnancy Announcement- Getting Creative

It took an obnoxiously long time for me to come up with the perfect pregnancy announcement for our friends and family. Every time I finally had a decent idea, I would find something I didn't like about it. I ended up being so pleased with how ours came together.

The announcement photo: 

We took a family camping trip with Joe's family to Lake Michigan. It was absolutely gorgeous, and we had some incredible views of the sunset! On our last evening there, I asked Joe's sisters to take a few "bump" shots of us in front of the lake. I loved how they turned out so much that it ended up inspiring the entire announcement! I decided to use a "movie poster" theme, and put the whole thing together on my iPhone. It turned out great! We had so many comments on how original it was and how great it turned out.

I had already recorded the reactions of our friends and family as they were told the news. I had planned on putting the videos together just as a keepsake, but with our movie poster announcement, I decided to go the extra mile and make a "movie" to go with it! It turned out so much better than I could have hoped! We had so much great feedback on the creativity of our annoucement!

I knew I had to incorporate my extreme love of Disney somewhere into our big news... so I came up with this! I was pleased with the results! :)

 I would love to hear how you announced your pregnancy, or other great ones you have seen. I'm sure there are a lot more people out there much more creative than myself! :)
