Fun family pregnancy announcement!

Dec 7, 2016

A pregnancy announcement, it has to be one of my favourite things! How a couple chooses to share this amazing news can be funny, beautiful, hush-hush or over the top. In the end though, it always comes down to the same joy and excitement a new little person brings.

Finding out:

Every single one of our pregnancies have been planned and prayed for, the timing however has always been a bit of a surprise and baby number 3 was no different. I have been dealing with my fair share of health issues over the past year and it is safe to say this little one made us work for him / her and that’s why we knew we wanted to do something special the moment we found out about our pregnancy.

A plan of action:

A photo shoot, (it might not be very original but it’s so us… and who better to ask than Mario Sales).We found out on a Monday and scheduled the photo shoot for that Saturday! We’ve never been good at keeping a secret or playing it safe. Waiting for the 1st trimester to pass before sharing our joy would have been impossible.

The theme:

We drew inspiration from our previous family photo shoots and played with a little “reading theme” created way back in 2012 when I was pregnant with Eliana.

The end result:

We are overjoyed and feel lucky and blessed to be experiencing a 3rd miracle and can’t wait to share the ride with YOU.

    Vanessa en Onic het ‘n “gender revealing party” gehou met pienk en blou en ‘n “dress code” en cupcakes met blou versiersuiker binne……
