Perhaps the most obvious reason that so many moms choose photo baby shower invitations is that they are so personal. They can be sure that when they order custom baby shower invitations with their baby’s ultrasound picture on it or a pregnant belly picture that those cards are unique and without a doubt one of a kind.
Think about it, getting a glimpse of the new baby is the first thing that family members and friends want to do. Cards with this design will give them a little preview of the baby while he or she is still inside the mommy’s tummy! If there is any telltale information regarding the gender of the baby boy or girl, you might include that information in a short verse on the inside of the invitation that also invites the person receiving the card to come and celebrate the occasion.
Photo Baby Shower Invitations
Once the hostess and the guest of honor decide that photo baby shower invitations are the care of choice the next step is to decide what kind of picture will be used. If mom wants to use a sonogram picture she will need to obtain a copy of the sonogram picture from her obstetrician or scan the one they gave her and give it to the hostess to send to the company that will be printing the custom baby shower invitations.

How to Make Homemade Sonogram Photo Baby Shower Invitations
If you (or one of your creative friends) have plenty of time on your hands and know how to make your own photo baby shower invitations, the first order of business will be to get a copy of the ultrasound from the doctor's office or you could borrow the one that they gave the mother. Once you have the picture, you can scan it and save the file on your computer. She will then need to take the file and use Photoshop or some other program to resize it to make sure that the picture fits the invitation and enhance the balance of color if necessary so that the black and white image is clear enough for the recipients to see.
If no sonogram pictures are available, you might include a tasteful pregnant belly picture on the front of the invitation. In lieu of a ultrasound pics, just for fun, you might draw a picture of the baby on board on mommy’s tummy with funny wording underneath (if there’s room!). Taking a serious approach, you might borrow a photo from her maternity portrait shoot and feature it on the front of the card. Choose the picture depending on whether you prefer the mood of the announcement to be lighthearted and funny or sentimental and sweet.
After you have personalized your photo baby shower invitations with your pictures, you might consider adding a tiny charm, ribbon or other decorations to the card to make it even more unique. And don’t forget to have a copy of the photo baby shower invitation framed to present as a gift to the mother and the dad-to-be!
