Hi there! Welcome to the SRJ Photography blog! Stay a while and peek into some recent sessions!

Hi, I'm Shannon.


Chances are you already have plenty of ideas on how to use your newborn photos (if not, check out a few here!) but you may be wondering what are the best ways to use your maternity photos? As a professional maternity photographer, here are a few of my favorites:

Baby Reveal Photos

Maternity photos are such a fun way to reveal important news about your baby! If you’ve picked out a name or are ready to reveal the gender of your little one, some beautiful maternity pictures can be the perfect way to send out the announcement.

Nursery Decor

We often think of putting up newborn pictures in the nursery. But I also love the idea of using maternity shots in combination with newborn photos. Having a display of maternity pictures plus portraits of mother and baby together means that you have more than just beautiful images. You have a story! And it’s not just for the nursery. Maternity photos can be beautifully displayed anywhere in your home.

Maternity Portraits

On that note, my opinion is that one of the best ways to use your maternity photos is the same way you would use any other pictures of you and your family. In an album, as a gift to loved ones, or as a print or canvas on the wall. Think about how you use family photos, and do the same thing with your maternity pictures. After all, your pregnancy is a step in your family’s journey. And such an exciting one! Your maternity pictures deserve to be displayed with pride and in a way that brings you joy.

If you need ideas, please get in touch with me–I’m happy to help! I offer a wide range of display options, and can even come to your home to measure walls and give you ideas on how and where to show off your photos to best advantage. I can’t wait to help you capture and share this special stage of your life!
