As a photographer I love to harp – print your photos. Print your photos. PRINT YOUR PHOTOS!

So maybe you’re saying okay okay! I printed them…now what?


Here’s 5 innovative ways to display them:

1. An Oversized Framed Collage

Print off your Instagram photos, your favorites from your wedding or your everyday family pics. You could change them up each year too. Not enough wall space for something this grand? Check out this next idea.

2. A Bowl of Photo Cards

Keep it on a coffee table and wow, what a conversation piece. My kids would LOVE this too (you know how they love pictures of themselves!).

Are you looking for something a little more artistic?

3. Heart Collage

Seen on Emma’s DesignBlogg, this one is made with polaroids but you could easily get the same effect with regular prints that have a white frame around them – almost any printer can do this for you.

Like this idea for a special occasion?

4. Birthday Collage

How cool is this (Martha Stewart, no surprise!)? Regardless of the age, I can’t think of a decoration that would have more impact or invite more interest.

Are you more traditional?

5. Gallery Wall

Young House Love never fails. I love how thoughtfully this gallery wall was put together. It makes you feel like every piece has sentimental value and was placed there with intention. Your wall can have a theme or none at all. The frames don’t all have to be the same color, mix it up!

So there you have it! 5 innovative ways to display your photos.

Do you have a display in your home you want to share? I’d love to see it!
