Being Brickner : Avalon's Announcement

Avalon's Announcement

Happy Friday, friends!!  I am finally getting around to sharing a couple images from pictures we had done when Avalon was about a month old, as well as her birth announcement!  We had pictures done with Waverly a few days after she was born and went the traditional route, some really amazing images inside with backdrops and huge headbands & bows.  I really love them and will treasure them forever, but decided to do something different with Avalon.  We did most of our photos outside (where we are happiest!), some of just Avalon, some of both the girls, & some with our entire family of four! :)  I shared a sneak peek here, and am excited to include the rest soon, but for now, I wanted to focus on a couple favorites of Avalon & the girls, the images we used for her announcement.

The pictures were done at a park near our house, it's kind of a dream come true to see our newest baby girl sleeping so sweetly there, & even more so to see both our girls together.  We go there all the time so it's special to us, I know Avalon will grow to love it just as much as we do!

And the announcement! :)  You all probably know about my obsession with invites, cards, just pretty products in general.  In a world that is so technology-driven, I feel like these sorts of things are still personal & important as ever, I absolutely love getting fun mail. I hope our friends & family love it as much as I do!  We worked with our friends at Tiny Prints to create these, as always, I am so in love with the result.  They have the absolute best quality, so many options, & are the easiest, sweetest people to work with.


You can find the style I used here, it's even prettier in person & I definitely recommend it.  And just for fun, a picture from Waverly Maye's newborn pictures three years ago!  Do you think the girls look alike as newborns?!

  17. Very sweet pictures, I've always wondered how newborns sleep through being posed like that 😊 my little one wouldn't cooperate!(sweethughes.blogspot.com)

  18. Such beautiful girls!!! I think they definitely look alike, though I'm sure up close there are differences. I'd say you can see sibling resemblance. :)

  19. LOVE the pictures of the two girls together! :) That definitely did not happen in our newborn session...big brother was NOT having it. I don't see the resemblance as much between them as newborns but I can definitely tell they are sisters seeing them side by side in the picture where they are both looking at the camera! They are such cuties!
