Newborn and maternity photography is an exciting time for mothers and soon-to-be-mothers. Whether you’re looking for a professional maternity photographer or a newborn photographer, there are lots of creative ways to use your photographs beyond just putting them in simple picture frames.
Adding someone special to your family is not a time most families want to keep things simple: why not go all out and create something a little more unique and creative with the photographs you take? Use some of the ideas below to get your creative juices flowing. Don’t forget you can ask your newborn or maternity photographer for more ideas!
Larger Than Life Images
If you have the space in your home, instead of putting small pictures in standard picture frames, you could blow the image up to a much larger size and put it somewhere central or otherwise significant in your room. Your master bedroom or newborn bedroom is a great place to showcase the images you get of your newborn or during a shoot with a maternity photographer.
Share Them on Social Media
A maternity photographer can also share the digital photographs with you if you would like to save them on your computer or phone, rather than only having physical copies. If you’re comfortable sharing your family online, photos a maternity photographer will take will truly showcase the beauty of you and/or your newborn.
Visual Family Tree
Family trees, whether kept to your immediate family or to an extended family, are a great way to visually see the size and connection of your family. And what better way to display everyone important in your life than by adding pictures you get from your family, newborn, and/or maternity photographer? You can add pictures of everyone in your family and link them together to create a visually appealing family tree.
Chronicles of Your Newborn
Your maternity photographer can help you create the beginning of a really fun and creative use for family photographers: a visual showcase of the growth of your new family member. Starting with your favorite photo from a maternity photographer, you can add a newborn photograph after your child is born, and progressively add more photos of your child throughout the years. You could post these pictures on a wall, if you have the space, or in a family album dedicated to newborn’s life.
