Simple Modern Dog Pregnancy Announcement
The most simple puppy dog pregnancy announcement photo idea of all – grab one of these cute baby announcement dog bandanas, set up a white cloth backdrop at home (or get your pup to hop up on your bed if that’s allowed!) and throw your iPhone into portrait mode for a sweet, simple, but meaning photo like this.

Dog Reading a BookPregnancy Announcement
Think you can get a pair of glasses to stay on your pup for long enough to snap a pic?
Then this sweet little pregnancy announcement idea might be just the one for you.
While there are a few ways you could set this one up, it may be easiest to create a cover for your book yourself with some card stock or pretty paper.
To include the sonogram, grab a mini clothespin and attach the photo to the book before you place it in front of your dog (of course, having lots of yummy treats on hand may help this feat go a bit more smoothly!)

If you plan on having your baby reveal photographs taken with a professional photographer, they will, of course, provide plenty of poses and shots for you to choose from.
While planning which style of photos you’d like with your photographer, consider having them shoot a few where the pups are in focus, and the subject of the images, too, just like this one.

Funny Pregnancy Announcement with Dogs
To recreate this cute pregnancy announcement with dogs, you’ll need a letter board with a cute and funny phrase, a custom baby onesie, a soother with a clip and your sonogram photo.
For the best photo, try to find a spot in your home that gets indirect sunlight, and take the photo on a slightly overcast day if you can.
For a nice and bright backdrop, try laying down a neutral blanket.
