Edmund's Birth Annoucements


Today I am sharing the birth announcements I created for our baby boy, Edmund. Bub is now 6 months old and, for obvious reasons, I only finished and sent these out a few weeks ago.

A 3-panel, z-fold piece, with one of my favourite formats for displaying information.

Edmund is such a happy, happy baby, he has a huge cheeky grin and his whole face lights up when he smiles, so I really wanted to capture this so we could show everyone, especially those who hadn’t met him yet. We had a little photoshoot in the lounge, and luckily, he thinks I am hilarious, so capturing the expressions was easy, capturing one in focus on the other hand, was not! He’s such a wriggle worm. The chosen photo made up the first panel along with his name. On the middle panel, I illustrated all his birth stats - date and time of birth, weight, length, location and hospital with little hand-drawn icons to give them interest. Then, because these announcements were doubling as a thank you card, we left a spot to write our heartfelt messages on the last panel.

We sent these out to everyone who attended the baby shower, sent flowers, cards, love or words of advice and visited the hospital when Edmund was born.
