Beachy baby, searching for pretty ideas for a beach pregnancy announcement? Then cozy up, mama, because today, we’ve rounded up the very best, *gorgeous* beach baby announcement ideas for 2023 that you are going to *obsess* over.
Scrolling through snaps of unique and creative pregnancy announcement ideas is many expecting and hopeful mama-to-be’s hobbies.
But when it comes time to planning your own special news, it can feel impossible to choose a baby announcement idea that feels like it fits just right.
Whether you’re a bonafide water baby yourself, or just have a special moment like an engagement that also took place on the beach, there are so many reasons to choose a beach pregnancy announcement.
So you don’t have to, we’ve dug through piiiiles of pregnancy announcement photos across all of our socials, and picked the very best shots to get you inspired.
Let’s dive in –
The Sandy Handprint Beach Baby Announcement
While the classic ultrasound photo will help make it crystal clear just what your image is about, if you are looking for a more subtle or unique way to reveal that there’s a baby in your belly, try a sandy handprint instead.
To keep the image light and airy, stick with outfits that mirror your setting – light beige or khaki colored pants or shorts blend well with the sand, and white and light blue items go well with the same tones found in water and sky.
The Beach Baby Holding the Sonogram Second Baby Announcement
Looking for a cute idea for a sibling beach pregnancy announcement?
Put your sun hat on your little one and give them the sonogram for this sweet photo opp.
You can definitely plan a few different shots, but by opting for this cute pose that doesn’t include your first baby’s face, you really give the sonogram a chance to shine on its own.
The Romantic Sunset Bump Grab
Wondering which time of the day to plan your beach pregnancy announcement?
Photog Nicole Kirshner gushes, “I always love shooting during golden hour or blue hour. The last little bit of light during the day is my favorite.”
Wondering what, exactly, blue hour is?
“Right after golden hour – [when]the sun sets & everything is blue [and] purple.”

The Golden Hour Beach Pregnancy Announcement

No hair and makeup required. 👌🏼
The Itty Bitty Baby Shoes Beach Pregnancy Announcement
