The First Year in Silhouettes is the perfect gift for new parents who want to document this special time in their baby's life. Created from your photos.
Note: You can order your child's silhouette monthly, at 4 months, 8 months or 12 months all together. By purchasing this product, you would have pre-ordered your child's silhouette print. You are commissioning us to create your child's 1,4,8 or 12 months of silhouettes. You can submit all 12 pictures at once or you can choose to send them in one at a time (as you take them). We will email back a proof of the entire collection (or a month at a time) and once you have approved them we will proceed in printing the 12 silhouettes on a single fine art print. We can add the name and date at bottom center of the print as shown on the examples above.
Another option is for you to purchase each month's silhouette separately, 4 months or 8 months together.
WHAT KIND OF PICTURES DO WE WORK WITH?
Head profile pictures make the most recognized silhouettes as they show baby's changing features. But full body pictures work well if your goal is to capture their physical achievements, such as rolling over, sitting up, crawling, standing, walking. Please upload as many pictures are possible so we can select the ones that make the best silhouettes. More pictures can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
