The Statement Piece

A large framed or canvas print is an excellent way to showcase your newborn’s portrait. A single favorite framed image on display will create a stunning work of art. A canvas print is also an excellent way to make a statement on a blank wall. Choose a location that is visible to all and where the portrait can be admired. You can also experiment with different sizes and shapes of canvases to create a unique look that suits your space.

A Gallery Wall

A gallery wall is a great way to display multiple portraits of your newborn and family. Choose a wall in your home and arrange a variety of framed portraits in a collage-style arrangement. You can mix and match different sizes and orientations of frames to create a dynamic display. Choose frames in a similar style or color to create a cohesive look, or mix and match frames for a more eclectic feel. You can even mix frames and canvas pieces! When creating your gallery wall, consider adding other meaningful items such as your newborn’s birth announcement, numbers or letters.

A Picture Ledge

Picture ledges, or floating shelves, are a unique way to display your newborn portraits. This option allows you to create a mini-gallery of sorts, where you can display portraits alongside other meaningful items such as books or decorative objects. Choose a wall in your home and install a set of floating shelves. Then, place framed portraits of your newborn on the shelves alongside other meaningful items. Floating shelves come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you can choose the perfect option to fit your home decor. Having portraits on a shelf is also an easy way to rotate pictures and change the display.
