Back Pocket Sonogram Baby Announcement
Want a fun and simple sibling pregnancy announcement? Try putting your sonogram in your older child’s back pocket.

Big brother x2! Oh baby, you’ve got twins on the way. Pick a fun outfit and grab your letter board for this style of sibling pregnancy announcement. And then after your photoshoot grab a quick nap… because you’re about to have #doubletrouble.
New Member Coming Letter Board Announcement
Whether your family is on baby number two, three, four or more… This is a great photo set up to announce your next baby.
Mom and dad’s hands each hold one side of the letter board with your announcement. Your other kiddo’s can be in the background with a helium filled number balloon.
Pro tip – put your kids on the couch and they don’t even need to stand still! Take the stress out and let them sit next to each other, they’re slightly out of focus anyways so this photo style is fool proof!
Mama Bird With Baby Birds
Matching family outfits are an ultra-adorable way to announce your new family member’s expected arrival. Not everyone has a beautiful camper van like this to take photos in, but think about a location in your life or home that has special meaning to you to help recreate this feel.
Letter Board Baby Number Two
A fun alternative to using a standard felt letter board for your baby announcement is to use a magnetic letter board like this one. They can be faster to make phrases with, which saves time AND sanity…
Place your word board in front of you and your family, stand back a little out of focus and get snapping to re-create a photo like this.
