Quadruplets photo birth announcement to come!

The girls are almost two months old. They're doing fantastically well. And they are gorgeous. And I'm in love.

Hannah and Gwendolyn were the first born, and are already over 8 pounds! Twins Emily and Isabella are working hard to catch up to their "big" sisters.

I'm excited to create their birth announcement and I've taken my first round of photos --- more will come. And since it is a local friend who had these sweet babies, I made myself Official Photographer. It is fun to do a little photography again --- I do miss it. Babies are such a great subject. And since I get over to help feed a couple times a week, I have lots of photo-taking opportunites.

Birth announcement to come!

Photo birth announcement for Colin

Sometimes you want your birth announcement to be modern. Sometimes classic. Sometimes fun. That is why custom photo birth announcements from Chouette Design Group are the way to go!

I love design. I love creating. I love transforming photos into something truly special. How am I inspired to create a new design for each baby? For me it's easy. Because I know how special that baby (or babies!) is to you. And your photo is my first inspiration.

With Colin's photo, I thought a modern design would be perfect. A sans-serif font, in blue ... with a touch of script in the "welcome" message. Simple and to the point. I enhanced the photo by first correcting the lighting and clarity --- then I blurred and lightened the background even more. I liked the "ethereal" feeling that was achieved.

I'll be working on another special photo birth announcement soon -- an announcement for a friend of mine who gave birth to quadruplets a month ago. With three babies home, and the fourth due home next week, you can imagine how her life has changed. I've enjoyed spending time with the babies, feeding them, talking to them. And talk about inspiration! I will have four new muses. And lots of photos of crazy-cute baby feet! You'll see some favorites from "aunt Lisa" posted here from time to time.

That's it for now --- I hope you are staying cool!
