Pat and I knew when we got pregnant that we wanted to tell our friends and family formally before we announced anything on the blog or social media.
We got pictures done with Amber in Hawaii knowing we wanted to use them for our announcement pictures. It was such a fun way to embrace this sweet new beginning of our life and we were so happy with the way the announcements turned out. Then we did a mentor session with Hannah after our trip and absolutely loved the detail picture so much that we knew we had to use it as the face of our announcement.
We mailed these out to our closest family members and friends and even still waited almost six weeks before we announced our pregnancy to the world. Honestly, I would do it over and over again. There was something so special about keeping our pregnancy intimate between us, and then our family and friends, before we told the world.
