Once you have captured your incredible journey on film, you’ll want to find clever ways to display the pictures in your home. Printing and displaying photos from your maternity photoshoot are a fun way to look back at this momentous occasion with memories that will last a lifetime.
Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing:
Display Your Prints in Decorative Frames
One of the simplest ways to display your maternity pics is in frames. Picture frames can be found in a wide range of colors, finishes and designs to complement the owner’s existing décor. Once framed, you can choose the perfect spot in your home to hang your photos. Some families prefer a prominent spot over the mantel, while others like to enjoy their photos in their bedroom or the baby’s nursery.
If you don’t like the look of framed wall art, there are also other ways to display your maternity photos. Fill a photo ledge shelf with your favorite prints and frames in various sizes to create visual interest. If you want to hang a group of photos, create a gallery wall in a layout that works best for your space.
Protect Your Prints in a Photo Album or Baby Book
Not everyone enjoys the look of photos on their walls but do want the option to look at their maternity pics from time to time. Safely storing your maternity pictures in a photo album or baby book is a great way to keep the printed photos protected and accessible. Devote a special album or book for this very purpose and pull it out when you want to look back fondly on your pregnancy.
If you prefer to see your photos in a digital form, an online photo album may be more appealing. Request that your maternity photographer send you your pictures in a digital format and upload them to an online photo album where you can log in and see them whenever you want. You can also share them directly on social media.
Find Crafty Ways to Display your Maternity Pics
If you love all things DIY, you’ll enjoy finding new ways to display your maternity photos using simple crafting materials. Mount prints on wood panels for a rustic look, place a photo in a glass vase surrounded by twinkle lights or use wax paper to transfer your favorite photo into a pine slab. The possibilities are endless.
It is important to remember that printed maternity photos require a print release from your maternity photographer. A print release allows clients to print their photos or make copies themselves for personal use. Without a print release, you may have to request prints directly from your maternity photographer.
