For most people summer is the ultimate time to unplug and recharge -- to gear up for finishing the year strong and getting ready to embrace the new year to come. And for parents-to-be preparing to have a little one in December or January,  that couldn't be more true! They're also most likely going to be ready to announce the exciting news over the summer, too. And although there are some creative announcement ideas that can work any time of year, there are also seasonal options to help personalize the news even more. From the Fourth of July announcements on behalf of a little firecracker to the ocean-inspired ideas for a beach baby, there are so many festive themes for future moms and dads to take inspiration. 

Before winter babes make their grand entrance, incorporate their special announcement into some summer fun. Whether mom is ready to share the baby news in June, July, or August, a summer photo has some serious perks. Not only does it mean better lighting and the ability to shoot outside, but it also gives more wardrobe options such as busting out the best sundress or swimsuits in the closet. Score! 

There are so many fun ways to introduce the little one to the world that can include the beach, but the announcement doesn't have to. Inspiration can come from many other summer sweet spots, such as the water, the mountains, or even backyard fun! All mom needs to do is pick one that she loves the best. We've collected 17 of our favorite summer pregnancy announcements we're obsessed with to get the creative juices flowing. Take a look at these amazing warm-weather options and let these sunny ideas inspire baby's big reveal.

  • BIG SISTER BOOT CAMP

    If this isn't mom's first rodeo (or her second) then why not combine the classic summer camp experience with a little big sister boot camp? This adorable shot is perfect for parents who want to include their older children in their baby announcement. We love it!

  • RED, WHITE, AND DUE!

    Red, white, and due! We love this adorable play on words that that this mama added to include that she might be carrying twins. Match a catchy letter board with an outfit in all-American colors and voila - an Instagram-worthy picture!

  • CATCH THE WAVE

    Surf's up! If mom or dad likes to hit the waves, then they might want to consider incorporating their love of the beach into their baby announcement. Just make sure to get a tiny enough surfboard for when the little one comes!

  • FIELD DAY

    It's oh so simple, but oh so sweet. This adorable little guy is making a break for it while letting the world know that he is going to be an awesome big bro. Take advantage of the amazing summer weather and get your shot outside! 

  • ARGGH, BABY!

    Take to the seas for a baby announcement and do a pirate-themed version with an older child. All an expectant parent needs is a beach, an adorable chalkboard, and of course, a pirate hat. Shiver me timbers! 

  • WRITE IN THE SAND

    6

    There are a couple of cute messages that can be written in the sand to let the world know that baby is on the way! Write the due date, what month baby is coming, or even baby's name or gender! Easy and inexpensive, this is an idea for any beach lover. So cute! 

  • SAY IT IN LIGHTS

    Sparkler messages are truly the art of summer, so why not share the most important news in life with a little summer magic? What a sweet way to let the world know that a little bundle of joy is on its way.

  • BIKINIS OR TRUNKS?

    If mom and dad are not revealing the gender of baby (or they don't want to know until the little one is here!) then why not do a "Bikinis or trunks?" announcement? Get a clothesline, some tiny bathing suits, and a chalkboard and have instant summer baby announcement perfection. 

  • TAKE A HIKE!

    The great outdoors can be a wonderful inspiration for a summer shoot. Just take this photo by Cait Pappas of Nest Out West. To do this at home, all one needs to do is to find a trail or scenic spot outside and get a little creative with deck chairs. It's so simple and so cute!

  • SONOGRAM IN A BOTTLE

    This is the most meaningful message in a bottle that mom and dad can send out to sea. Show off the sonogram and growing family with a picturesque beach scene. Precious!

    Now here's an announcement for the family that likes to hunt and fish. This cute chalkboard sign by Chalking It Up Boards is the cutest way to announce that the oldest child is about to become a big sibling!

    If mom and dad are more of the summer abroad kind of couple, why not make the announcement in a beautiful location? Sure, there is no place like home, but a vacation announcement is sure to make the trip extra special. How unique! 

  • THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!

    If the summer means getting outside, then why not include the great outdoors into the pregnancy announcement?Just take baby booties (so cute!) and a onesie and place it in a scenic local. Baby shoes + good scenery = amazing baby announcement.

  • A LITTLE POETRY

    16

    Letter boards are an easy way to make a baby announcement personal, but this mom took it a step further and threw a little poetry into the mix. Decorate the letter board with sweet summer objects such as leaves or sunflowers, and don't forget the tiny shoes. 

  • S'MORE TO LOVE!

    For some family fun, take to the campfire for a baby announcement. Nothing is cuter than this couple's adorable sign reminding us that adding one "s'more" to the bunch is never a bad thing. Bonus perk: eat the marshmallows after the shoot!.
