Guess What??

I got to photograph the cutest boy making the cutest pregnancy announcement.

 We tried to get him to hold the sign like a few pictures that had been posted on Pinterest.
A. An 18 month old is going to what they want to do. End of discussion. 
B. There should be warnings on Pinterest that say "Poses in real life are much more difficult to achieve than they appear".

So it was onto Plan B. I brought some chalk and thought he would like to draw with it.
Photographer: 1
Baby: .5

Then I just add the text through ipiccy.
{better than picnik, similar to picmonkey. I prefer making collages with ipiccy though}
After many chalkboard failures with Adalyn, I've learned that it's easiest to use a blank chalkboard and just add text later.
You don't have to worry about your handwriting or it smudging
you have a much higher percentage of getting a good pose. 
Trust me. 

Here are some other fun ones from the shoot: 

She also wanted to have a little guessing game after her announcement on facebook so there's this cute one, too:
Again, the perk to adding text later!

Congrats to the O. Family!!
