Maternity photography is a beautiful way to celebrate your pregnancy and your excitement to welcome your new baby. But no family wants to just enjoy their portraits briefly and then put them aside. The more time goes by, the more you’ll enjoy seeing your maternity photos on a daily basis. To help you decide the best way to do this, check out these ideas for how to display your maternity photos.
Hang Custom Statement Artwork
Don’t underestimate the power of one beautiful portrait! Whether you prefer a canvas print or a framed print, one statement art piece is a fabulous addition to your decor, especially in your nursery or your primary bedroom. These portraits give you a daily reminder of this majestic and beautiful time in your life and of the journey toward welcoming your new baby.
Create a “Before and After” Portrait
Your pregnancy is the start of an amazing adventure, and a great way to pay homage to that step in your adventure is with a “before and after” portrait: a frame with two pictures side by side, one from your maternity photo shoot and one from your baby’s newborn photo shoot. Or, you can even take it a step further and have a frame that features several photos, from your maternity portraits through milestones in your baby’s first year.
Send Out Gender or Name Announcements
By the time you have your maternity photos taken, you will have already announced to your friends and family that you have a baby on the way. What they may not yet know, though, is your baby’s gender or the name you’ve chosen. You can use your maternity portraits to create and display custom announcements for these exciting details. Whether you’re posting the announcement on social media or mailing out formal announcement cards, planning this into your maternity photo shoot will make your announcements look manicured.
Continue or Start Your Gallery Wall
A gallery wall is a perfect choice for families who love sentimental portraits and want to decorate their homes with the smiling faces of those people they love most. Your gallery wall is also an excellent place to display your maternity portraits. That wall tells the story of your family, how it grew, and the love that has persisted and grown over the years. Your pregnancy is an important chapter in that story and it deserves a place of honor on your gallery wall.
