I attempted the Christmas photo, even though I know it's probably too late for cards. My daughter could not stop laughing and one day I will love that but my goodness, that makes it hard to get a good photo.
I have to give a huge round of applause to One True Media. I had the true honor of taking photos of my sister-in-law a few days before she delivered. She was (and is) absolutely beautiful. My brother was in the photos as well. I didn't expect it to be so much fun, but to capture the laughs between the two of them as a couple just prior to the birth of their daughter was breathtaking. Scrolling through the photos, I had the idea to do a little montage of the day their daughter was born. So that day, my camera and I made giant pests of ourselves in order to get as many great shots as I could. Using One True Media was super simple, just add photos from IPhoto and music from ITunes. Easy cheesy. I ordered the DVD for them as a Christmas present and oh wow. I didn't think the quality would hold up on a 38 inch television, but it is absolutely gorgeous - so much better than my computer screen. I highly recommend this as a baby gift. Everyone has loved it.
A fun shot if you have the opportunity: My best pal has a photo of her daughter in the nursery just minutes after she was born and in part of the photo is the reflection of her sister looking in at the new baby. It's a really cool effect. I attempted this and got the reflection of of my mom looking in at my brother holding hands with his daughter. It's not as distinct as I would like, but my brother said it was one of his favorites.
