It's easy to get snap-happy when you have a new baby. Keeping a camera handy has never been easier — whether it's a digital version or on your smartphone — making DIY baby announcements to holiday cards a lot more fun.
When it comes to baby announcements, you can post photos of your newborn on Facebook before you're even out of the delivery room. However, don't deny friends and family those official snail-mail birth announcements.
For the holidays, it's as simple as 1-2-3 to customize a photo card using the latest adorable shot of your little one.
Share your baby's stats or personalize your holiday greetings in style with these picks:
CUTE & CHEAP Sets of the 4-by-8-inch photo-paper cards from Shutterfly are affordable and easy to customize—pick a layout, drag one or more photos, add your information or personal greeting and you're done! (From 65 cents each for 50 cards)
ECO-FRIENDLY The modern designs from Paper Culture showcase your baby's face on 100 percent recycled, high-quality paper. Plus, for every order, the company plants a tree in honor of your child. (From $2 each for 50 cards)
