A picture might be worth 1000 words, but if it’s on your phone, it might not last forever. This framed print is really sweet, simple, and modern. From etsy shop Lucky to Be in Love.
Ok, that was a distraction, because what I wanted to share is some really cute announcement photos that leverage the ability of a photo to communicate all the stats for a new baby.

Who has a yard stick, a stylish vintage clock, and blah blah blah? New mom Jessica confesses she did not own those things, but she bought them (and — shhh returned some of them after taking the photo.)
Jessica’s take on this style of announcement is amazing. She wrote on Facebook, “We returned the clock, yard stick, and weight after we took the picture. The lace was material we had, we printed the calendar page, and the material we wrapped her in was my daughter’s old dress. The only thing we spent money on was her name which we used in her nursery.”
I love her budget-minded success. “We took the photo ourselves with my cell phone, and we used a Shutterfly freebie and got 100 free prints of these.”
“We may be broke but we can still be cute,” she says.
