Clean-lined, elegant baby birth announcement photo cards like these are designed to showcase Baby, so the quality of the photograph matters a lot. If you want to capture the same high-quality, detail-rich shots like these, listen to what professional photographers like Kate Renyi of KER Photography have to say:

  • Simple is best

“Don’t worry about dress. In fact,” believes Kate, “babies’ skin can be their best outfit. And we all know skin will never look so good again!”

  • Focus in

“The sweetest details can be found in the smallest parts,” Kate advises. She like to focus in on little feet, a nose, grasping hands, etc.

  • Accessorize

“Be different and surprising by using fun accessories.” Kate loves how hats can add a touch of whimsy and also serve to cover up some babies’ misshapen or cradle cap heads.

Consider Card Design

Once you’ve got some photos you’re happy with, consider the card’s design. KER Photography likes the effect of balancing a busier card design with a black and white photo. If you love a card that has a lot of color and pattern, think about customizing it with your photo in black and white or a close-in shot. A simpler card design, on the other hand, makes a great showcase for a collage of photos with lots close-in details. We like these examples from our own collection at www.LookLoveSend.com below:
