In this pregnancy announcement, the sign does all the work. The larger-than-life Bump Ahead gives a hint at what’s to come. Another quick search on Pinterest reveals other clever signs such as Baby on Board.
2. Brotherly (or Sisterly) Love
Let big brother or sister break the news to family and friends by holding up a rustic chalkboard with the written announcement. You could also use a dry erase board or canvas and paint. Check out this little guy’s facial expression. (Wait until he smells his baby sibling’s diapers!)
3. Hipster Happy
No words necessary for this announcement. This hipster couple sporting Toms is about to add a pair of tiny feet (and eco-friendly slip-on shoes) to the family. This also works with Converse tennis shoes for a laid-back look, flip-flops for a beach-loving family or dress shoes for that classy feel.
4. Spell It Out
This idea is perfect for lovers of board games. Spell out the gender of your new arrival in wooden Scrabble pieces to announce the happy news. But if board games aren’t your thing, you could use magnetic letters or alphabet blocks.
5. Do the Math
Take a few clever shots of the family and integrate the news right into this frame. Mom + Dad + baby + one more = four. Here, they use chalk, but this would also work with other props. Try setting up the shot in a series of four frames — baby, Daddy, Mommy and new addition (illustrated with an ultrasound photo).
