Meet the 3rd Hicks Chick, Victoria! She was actually born back in June, but we wanted to hold off on blogging some of the images from her newborn session until birth announcements were sent out to her family and friends!
Initially I wasn’t doing, nor advertising a whole lot for birth announcements since my time was being consumed by grad school. As I started getting back into it however, I started to realize how fun it actually all was!
First off however, are just a small few images of little Victoria. We ended up using quite a few images on her two birth announcements, so you’ll see more as you scroll down this entry. Besides, I’m sure this isn’t the last of Victoria and her lovely family on this blog 😉 xoxo
For her birth announcements, Mom picked out 2 different concepts. One was a 5×7 flat card which utilized a pink template. The other concept did not utilize any templates, and was a 5×7 card that folded horizontally and displayed 4 images (1 on each side of the card) in a simply stated and clean look. Both cards were printed on cardstock in a pearlescent which gave a subtle shimmering finish.
I actually think sharing as much images as you can on a birth announcement, without being too overly excessive about it, is a great thing! And really, 3 – 5 images isn’t all that much! Besides, your friends and family want to see what your new baby looks like, and all the little features he or she entails!
Everything is customizable, the wording, the font selection, the image selection and placement, and even the decision to have the card be made in color or black and white!
In addition, for the 5×7 folding card, not one side was left blank! 😉
Birth Announcements are printed on card stock in either a pearlescent finish or linen texture. More information and pricing can be found on www.kristineatienza.com
