Pregnancy Announcement Photos

The Storyteller

Pregnancy is an exciting and life-changing experience for expecting parents. Sharing the news of a pregnancy with family and friends is often a special moment that is cherished forever. One way to capture this moment and share it with loved ones is through a pregnancy announcement family photo session. My client reached out to me to request a pregnancy announcement family session that didn’t feel cheesy. It makes the process so much easier for me when my clients send over specific requests of what they’re expecting from their session. After doing some quick research online and sending over some inspiration photos to her, we landed on a look that felt true to who they are – relaxed, fun-loving, and warm as a family of three soon to be a family of four.

Watching your family grow

I cannot express the joy that I feel watching my client’s families grow. It truly is so cute to see and I always share in their own excitement of a new addition to their family. A pregnancy announcement family photo session is a great way to capture the joy and excitement of announcing a new addition to your family. It is a fun and creative way to share the news with loved ones, and it can also serve as a beautiful keepsake to look back on in the years to come.

Choosing a location

There are about a dozen places and locations that we could have held their family session, but it felt right to photograph their pregnancy announcement at the same place where I first photographed them as a family over a year ago. It’s a continuation of their story and I am here for it! Choosing a location that is special to you and your family definitely adds to the relaxed and chill vibes that every family photographer strives for. Your kids will be familiar with the location, which builds their confidence and comfort level.

Plan ahead

These sweet family moments were captured at Clark Lake Park in Kent, Washington in mid-February. It is not the warmest time of year to hold a family session outdoors in Seattle, but we got extremely lucky with a warm day. I’m convinced that this family brings the sun with them where ever they go. If you’re interested in an outdoor family photoshoot for whatever occasion, milestone, or announcement you are hoping to document, simply send me an inquiry online to secure a date on my schedule. I look forward to meeting you soon!
