This morning, I announced a surprise “little something” we’ve been cooking up…a BABY! That’s right friends – we are expecting Baby number two in early June and we are over the moon about it. We announced the pregnancy with a fun baking themed photo shoot and i love how it turned out. Caroline Dahlberg of Coeur de La Photography captured our family in such a fun and beautiful way and I thought I would share the photos here as inspiration for those of you with a pregnancy announcement in your future. It was a fun way to incorporate family photos with the pregnancy announcement and I’m seriously smitten with them.
A Creative, Baking-Themed Pregnancy Announcement
The story starts out with the cast of ingredients for making pancakes…but really, it’s not just pancakes we’re cooking up!
Everyone is in on the action
Cooking is a team sport!
Documenting the process
My husband showing our girl how to crack an egg.
This is one of my favorite shots in the bunch, when the eggshell broke in the mix.
So focused on her mixing skills.
The little surprised look on her face is my favorite.
Cheesy smile for the camera.
Remnants of our baking adventure.
Just a little hint
Then you get a little hint of what we’re cooking up. I just poured the pancake batter into a squeeze bottle to spell out the letters.
Close-up bump shot
And then everyone is let in on the surprise! Baby pancakes paired with a little bump. A fun and simple way to announce.
It’s a B-A-B-Y!
I love how this tells a little story, but we didn’t have to do anything over the top. We make pancakes almost every weekend, so it’s a little part of our family culture as well, which makes it extra fun to have these photos — they double as a pregnancy announcement and great family photos.
