Photo birth announcement for Nicholas

This is a recent photo birth announcement design I created. I receive lots of requests to include siblings in new baby announcements - many even make the introduction themselves.

For this design, I decided to create a very classic look by darkening the background of the main photo. I was able to do this because the original photo wasn't light to begin with. I don't cut out the image from the background as this usually doesn't give the most natural appearance.

My goal is always to make the photo look like it could have been taken by a professional photographer in a controlled environment, even if it was really taken in the kitchen, while trying to make dinner, answer the phone, and pick up the pacifier that just flew to the floor!
