How does a creative marketer announce a pregnancy?

Strange question, I know. But you had to read the blog with a title like that, right?

I take opportunities in my life to explore new creative arenas, always. Maybe this was a few years ago–My son is nearly 3 now, but it was a fun project and worth the blog.

I wanted to learn stop motion videography. There was no need for it within my office. So…I used my personal life to learn a new skill.

Every person, every company, every startup has a story to tell. It is how you tell the story that matters.

PS– My son wears a lot of hats too…He prefers them over shirts.

HMM…what could I do? Before I came up with any great idea, he asked for video. He sent tons of photos of his wife and himself with one request: “Make it pretty.”

This is the “pretty” video:
