I don't mind simplicity. It makes the photo stand out... But, I am curious to know how it would look if you put the monogram from the top to the left of the name. Just a thought, if you want t o try.

I love the shadow on the boxes! I think I might try to increase the spacing between the letters in the bottom box. For the top box, I agree with the previous comment to maybe try to left justify. I also would be curious to see what the monogram would look like with the E and W slightly smaller or maybe in the same font as the bottom text for comparison. The design works well with the photo!

Simplicity is key - I think the design layout is nice but I might change the font of the Initials at the top ;)

Not at all too simple. It's quite delightful, actually. I like the hashmark shadowing. I would suggest a less condensed/narrow font, especially for the baby stats.

Such a sweet design! Do not think it's too simple. You could try to left align the monogram. That way the monogram would be on the left and the name would be on the right and look balanced. Hope this helps.

It's simple but I like it. The placement of the text boxes is really interesting and contemporary, but the soft blue and the text choices makes it inviting, not cold. Nice!
