When is black and white the best photo choice for your birth announcement cards or photo holiday card? Regardless of how many digital images you email, post or share online, every parent wants to capture the best possible photo when sending those printed announcements and greetings to family and friends. So when is black and white the way to go?
Capturing emotion in print. In the absence, of color, the black and white image forces its viewer to focus on the image rather than the color, making it easier to connect with any emotion or action captured in the shot. Many baby and wedding photographers choose black and white photos for those special close-ups that instantly look more polished and timeless as a black and white image.

Hiding imperfections. Just as people often look better in candlelight, photos often look better in black and white as skin imperfections are less apparent and lines are crisper. For the novice photographer, black and white photos don’t have to be perfectly lit and allow even the simplest pictures to appear more elegant.
The perfect photo card design for black and white. Some card designs lend themselves perfectly to a black and white photo, whether they feature a lot of color like ‘Retro Lights’ or just the hint of an accent color like ‘Pink and Black Floral’. While customizing your birth announcement cards with LookLoveSend, or when you make holiday cards, try the black and white or sepia coloring option to see if your design looks even better with a color-free photo. You may be pleasantly surprised.
