Birth announcements

Once we had taken family photos, we decided to make a few photo products for our friends and family. As always, we used Pinhole Press, since we love their simple, beautiful designs. First, we made birth announcements to send to our friends across the country and my family in England. My grandmother doesn't have an email account, so this will be the first photo she'll see of Anton!
Then we made a mini panoramic photo book. It's small enough to fit into a purse (perfect for proud grandmothers), and the pages are ultrathick and hard enough to knock on, which feels really luxurious.

It's so nice to have real products we can hold in our hands, instead of having the photos stuck on the computer:) Here are a few more nursery favorites...

What a wonderful idea. Your family photos turned out so sweet and personal. (also, as a very soon to be new mommy, you have been a great source for some confidence in myself. Thanks!!)

You just can't get any better than these photos from the earliest stages of life! And wouldn't you rather have that cute face on a photo you can hang on your fridge to look at everyday rather than sitting in a stinking email or computer?? I think this is a brilliant way to capture baby Anton. Hope you are loving (and surviving!) every minute with those 2 boys. Ok, 3 counting your hubs!

I won a giveaway for Pinhole Press you hosted a couple years ago and made albums for the grandparents. The binding and printing is so beautiful and of such great quality. I can't fathom using anyone else and have been using them ever since.

I am making a book for my nephew. They just moved away and I love the idea of making him a book of names and faces so he will still be familiar with us. Thank you for this lovely idea!
