Ways to Use Your Newborn Photos


Heather Toro Blog | April 2024

When you have a baby on the way and you’re weighing whether or not to invest in newborn photos, it can help to think of how you’ll use those portraits. As sentimental and heartfelt as your newborn portraits will be, they also have practical value because there are so many different ways you can use them. Whether you’re considering booking a newborn photography session or you already have your newborn portraits and are trying to decide how to best put them to use, check out these ideas.

  1. Create Custom Wall Art

One of the most popular and elegant ways to use your newborn photos is to turn them into custom wall art for your home. Whether your decor style is more suited to a framed print or a canvas print, either one will be a beautiful way to highlight your new little one! Large prints work perfectly as the focal decor piece in your baby’s nursery or in other rooms of your home, or you can opt for smaller prints as part of a gallery wall.

  1. Give Cherished Gifts

Your baby is coming into the world with so many people who already love them! Grandparents, aunts and uncles, godparents, family friends…there are so many people who love your baby and smile every time they see that little face, and those people will always enjoy having a framed print in their home. A simple framed 8×10 or 5×7 always makes a great gift.

  1. Start an Album for Your Child

As your child grows up, you’ll love collecting memories of all their special moments. What better way to honor those memories than to keep them in an album that serves as an easy stroll down memory lane? You can start with your baby’s newborn portraits and then add photos from each chapter of their life, including milestone baby photos, first birthday photos, and so on.

  1. Make Your Holiday Cards Special

When it comes to custom cards during the holiday season, the hardest part is having a great photo to feature. Not this year! When the time arrives, you can use your newborn photos to showcase the best part of your year, share a photo with loved ones to hang on their refrigerator and celebrate your baby’s first holiday season.
