Let’s first get it out of the way…no I’m NOT PREGNANT.

Ok then.

My friend Kara took newborn shots of Hannah when she was about a week old. I absolutely love them. I really wish I had them done with Summer instead of cheaping out and going to Penny’s. Oh well. Hannah did well during the shoot, only getting a little testy at the end. This was before I knew she would become a slave to the pacifier, or else I think things would have gone a little more smoothly. (Side note, I’m hating that damn thing. I forgot to take it to the grocery store one day and it was hell.)

Anyway. I received a CD of the images and set out to make my own birth announcement, like I did with Summer's. This time, however, I looked online at premade announcements and found one I liked online. So instead of paying them $1.15 per card, I copied it in Photoshop and had them printed at Sam’s for 38 cents each! I love, love, love it. And I’m pretty impressed with my skills, if I do say so myself.


Here are some of my other favorite shots.

Hannah  (9 of 77) Hannah  (77 of 77) Hannah  (71 of 77) Hannah  (52 of 77) Hannah  (49 of 77) Hannah  (43 of 77)

I have lots of extras, so if you didn’t get one and want one, (and who wouldn’t??) just let me know.

Love this kid!

Oh man...those are so stinking cute! I've decided when I have kids I'm flying Kara home to take pictures!

Lindsey said...

You better send us one of those! We didn't get one when Summer was born because "You guys get to see her in person." It better be on its way :)

You make adorable kids! I love how pretty these pictures are. I wish you lived by me so that I could get help and steal more ideas from you.

I think Hannah looks so much like you:)

It is easy making an adorable announcement when the precious baby & pictures are so perfect. :) That being said it does look awesome. Good job Karen.
