Oh I love it inside the swash! I might move the family name to the left a bit so it feels more centered with the date, or maybe go extreme and curve it over the right more.

Love A. I think you could take off "tidings of great" altogether and leave family name/year as is. Would give the artwork a little more movement.

I like B as I feel the design compliments the photo better...with A it seems to compete a bit.

beautiful design, Kimberly! I chose B because A is a much more common layout for this type of lettering, so I think you'd stand out more with B ;)

It looks like I'm in the minority, but I really like how "joy" fills the space in B. It feels more complete. Lovely work!

I picked the photo in C. I might try this in portrait format so we can see more of the word joy?

This is so hard to choose! I went with a just as a gut decision but I do love the idea of the birth announcement. I'm also wondering if you should try a version with the text inside the stash rather than above it. It might tie everything together really well and it looks like there's plenty of space.
