Do you have several baby shower photographs you’d like to compile? Now is also the perfect time to start thinking of cute maternity photos you can snap.

If you don’t have anyone to snap the photo, you can always do it in front of a mirror—don’t be shy! Whether you choose to do the same pose every day or mix it up, it’ll be amazing to look back once your child is older and show them how they grew.

2. My Baby Showers

Baby showers are a huge part of a pregnancy. Oftentimes a mother is celebrated by her family, in-laws, friends and even co-workers. If you’ve gathered photos from all of the baby’s welcomings, put them in one book and smile every time you look through it. There’s nothing sweeter than gathering everyone you love in one room while waiting for your baby’s arrival.

3. All About Mom

What did you crave while pregnant? When was the first time you met the baby through an ultrasound? Did you have a gender reveal celebration? All of these moments are wonderful to remember and look back on. Fill your book with sweet mom quotes and photos of you and your partner’s ever-growing fairytale.

4. Decorating The Nursery

Ideas for the baby’s nursery were probably dancing around in your head as soon as you found out you were expecting. Create a nursery album from start to finish documenting the fun process of decorating the baby’s room, the first items you purchased and the joy of finally completing the crib. Once your baby is born, your final photo can be of them sleeping in the space you’ve built for them.

5. Babymoon

A babymoon is a relaxing time with your sweetheart before the baby is born. It gives parents-to-be the chance to unwind before taking care of their newborn. Document all of your adventures in a one keepsake travel photo book. Whether it was a staycation or a romantic getaway in Europe, it’s always fun to reminisce on those moments with your best friend.
