I am not a photographer UPDATE!!

So I redid my pregnancy announcement shot and this time we did it in the house. I thought this idea was cuter and more fun. I think my shots came out much better this time. I played around with my camera settings and they arent perfect but better!!

Here are my 3 best ones (I know they are the same pose lol). I downloaded a free trial of lightroom 4. What can I do with that to edit these? I would like to do a little tweaking but need some suggestons.. Thank you so much ladies!!!


 




I found this shot on pinterest

I think she needs to be on the other side of the stove so it says "ONE, TWO" not "TWO, ONE."

Honestly I wouldn't even realize you were announcing a pregnacy by this picture.

I think that would be cute, anyway. I don't remember what you look like. I don't think that would matter anyway, because you're going to be sending them to people you like, right?

Quoting Italiancouture7:

Its supposed to be a "bun in the oven" I thought it was really creative Im not sure what else to do. I did the sign over the belly with the last one and everyone said not to an announcement with me in the picture. I must be hideous lol

Quoting HistoryNutty:

I was thinking the same thing.



OP, maybe hold a sign over your belly that says 'Two' instead.

Your DD looks adorable, and I may just be slow, but I would have no idea what you meant by the picture.

I wish you would have turned her towards the light more. Also more interaction with the oven would have been nice. Glad you got someone to do some editing for you.

I'm not trying to be mean but if you really wanted super cute shots, you should have hired a professional to do the announcement for you. Many will do the pregnancy announcement, gender reveal, maternity and newborn shots in one package.

Unfortunately I couldn't justify the cost to hire someone. For just one pose I was quoted $100 and while others have said that's fair it's not a justifiable cost. I dont expect my pictures to be photographer perfect but I have some basic tools and a DSLR so I'm not too worried. Its better than just a regular announcement saying hey were pregnant.
