The latest social media craze for breastfeeding mums is to produce Tree Of Life brelfies. First trending across Facebook and then going viral across Twitter and Instagram, a Tree Of Life photo is a photograph of a mother breastfeeding that is edited using a photo app to look like a painting or illustration.
This can be a simple selfie or a portrait that is then transformed using the amazing filters on app, PicsArt. The results show tree roots cascading over your baby and often finish with a fusion of bright, bold colours to create a beautiful piece of art. The idea is to represent the passing of life from the mother to the baby. Pumping and bottle feeding mums have also added their take on the trend by producing their own art works. If you have a#TreeOfLife image you'd like to turn into a canvas print, follow these steps and then upload it here, and there you have it - the perfect present.
A trend that seems to be perhaps unexpectedly soaring in popularity is for expectant mothers to bringing professional snappers into the labour room. According to The Telegraph one in five women are now hiring photographers to document the whole experience, instead of taking images on their smartphones.

A family portrait blown up onto a canvas not only makes for a great present, but it could also become a key piece of wall art you can display in your home and perhaps recreate in years to come.
Best Of Baby
No matter how much you tell yourself that you won’t be that person that constantly takes photos of their baby, you will. You’re proud of your little bundle and every day they’re growing and learning, so it’s only natural that you want to capture it. In fact, you may find it's hard to choose your favourite from all of the photos you've been taking. Instead, you could create a fantastic collage or split canvas print. If you’re unsure what a split canvas is, we’ve explained all here.
Creating a customised print like this is easy, it’s choosing the images that’s the hard part! We suggest using an image from the birth, along with photos to mark different developmental milestones. Warning, this present is so personal you best expect tears!
