Birth Announcements...10 months later.

Last year around this time, I posted my 31 on 31 post, where I was 31 weeks pregnant on my 31st birthday. Well, here I am one year later, having just celebrated my 32nd birthday...and I have yet to post anything about Mikayla, who's almost 11 months old now! When Minted approached me to share their products with my readers, I figured it's about time I introduce my second baby girl...10.5 months later! I received compensation in exchange for this review, but opinions and adorable baby are 100% mine.

I narrowed it down and was debating between these birth announcements...
And I finally decided on this one because I love full bleed images on cards where beautiful script stands out against negative space and the color matched perfectly.

As a newborn photographer for Misha Media, I make sure to capture a variety of options with blank space in case parents want newborn birth announcements like these, where the focus is solely on their precious baby and a beautifully designed message.

I love how when designing cards on Minted, you have beautiful fonts to choose from and can drag the different design elements around. I also love how nice and thick their card stock is and the options to write a long message with images. And the icing on the cake is free recipient addressing...also in beautiful fonts! No handwriting of 40+ addresses here! 

Which birth announcement do you like best? What is your go to site/designer for stationery? I have newborns on the mind as I've been photographing quite a few lately! But I better switch gears and pick up the pace on planning Mikayla's first birthday party. It's less than two months away, I can't believe it! Look how big she is now! 
Oh these two, melt our hearts every single day...
 And this little registered for kindergarten!?!!
