In the age of oversharing, it’s hard to believe that anyone receiving your birth announcement won’t have already seen a picture of your baby. If you didn’t Instagram your little one the minute he made his debut, he no doubt hit Facebook within hours, or at the very least, got his mugshot included in the mass email informing your closest 300 friends of his arrival.
So why not go the classy route for birth announcements and leave the photo cards to the masses? Choose your design while you’re still pregnant and cut down on hours of online shopping postpartum (you should be sleeping!). Plus without the time-consuming quest for the perfect baby pic, you can assure your announcements arrive promptly…and so will your baby gifts. Here are six options that speak volumes about your gorgeous baby without even having to include a photo.
