While giftable items are one way to share a special Christmas pregnancy announcement, photoshoots are another. Take some inspiration from the below Christmas pregnancy photo shoots. (Better yet, if you purchased t-shirts, ornaments or onesies, incorporate them for a sweet touch.)

A Christmas tree crew

This is sure to become a beloved festive family snapshot. Let the letterboard steal the spotlight, keeping the family in a soft, dreamy blur that accentuates the real star of the show—your heartwarming news.

Greetings from the North Pole

Make your little one the shining star in this announcement overflowing with holiday cheer! Turn a classic lemonade stand into a cozy hot cocoa bar, surrounded by pillows, signs and other delightful festive items to set the scene. The sweetest touch? Your oldest holding the first snapshot of their soon-to-be sibling.

Mistletoe memories

For a simple scene-stealer, snap a photo with your partner with some carefully placed mistletoe just above your growing baby bump. It’s a tender moment that hints at the kisses your little one is sure to be showered with soon!

Break out the matching family PJs

A cozy Christmas tradition, don your matching pajamas for a fun, no-fuss photo, complete with a sonogram surprise. For an adorable twist, consider subbing out the ultrasound print with a matching onesie to hint at the big news. When baby arrives, they’ll fit right into the heartwarming tradition.

Little feet soon to come

Mimic this announcement by setting out tiny accessories for baby beneath the tree, a symbolic glimpse of the great gift that’s on the way. Sneak into the back of the frame with your significant other, adding an element of surprise to your heartwarming holiday reveal.

A Christmas miracle

When you’re ready to shout your news from the high heavens, go for a custom onesie with your little miracle message. Not only is it an iconic announcement, but it’s also a sweet addition to baby’s future wardrobe!

No more silent nights

Get ready for a symphony of joy as your new arrival makes things a whole lot louder around the house! Celebrate the news that baby is on the way with a declaration of truth: there won’t be any more silent nights in your home!

A bun in the oven

Something special’s waiting by the tree

No ornament? No problem! Sneak your sonogram photo into the Christmas tree for an effortless and festive announcement.

Waiting for Santa baby

The joy of a baby on the way can take many forms, including the incredible journey of adoption. For couples planning to welcome a new member of the family this season, a snowy scene provides a beautiful backdrop for a picture-perfect announcement.

The greatest gift

Don your bump with a bow and unwrap the joy! Share your big news by adding a tag with baby’s due date to complete the greatest gift.

A creative crib
