Anne-Marie’s birth announcement.

Anne-Marie of the wonderfully inspirational wedding blog Perfect Bound has been one of Minted’s earliest supporters. And so we were just thrilled when we heard of the birth of her first son: Harrison James. We were equally thrilled when she decided to go with a Minted birth announcement.

Like many parents, it was hard for Anne-Marie to decide on the right picture and design combination. But in the end she went with Vintage by Oscar & Emma (above). Don’t you agree that this picture is just unbelievable? The light on his hand, the way his toes are stretched back, the profile of his spikey hair, the texture of the muslin, and the cuddliness of the blanket. He is channeling Moses! I LOVE that it’s a real basket AND that the text fits within it.

Belle Memoire (below) by Helena Seo Design was her equally lovely runner-up.

I love the close-up of his little face! The blanket is handmade from Anne-Marie’s childhood–what a wonderful idea to include an heirloom in your birth announcement photo!

Joe and Britney of Turn Loose the Art are the geniuses behind the photography. Thanks so much for sharing Anne-Marie and enjoy these very special months as a new mother!
