I was raised with family photos all around as well. My mom actually has a wall split downtairs that are tons of pictures of my dads side and then on the other side is her family and “their” family is in the middle…I love it and would love to do it one day.
I have never though of putting pics up of one self as vain. I was worried when i first got married about having too much wedding stuff up. I always made jokes that it looked like a shrine for the wedding…..

I don’t think it’s vain unless the pictures are plastered all over every available inch of wall space. Now if you lived by yourself and just had pictures of yourself everywhere…that might be strange. I remember going to hang out with some friends at some random guys apartment and he had his senior pictures all over the place. It was strange.

Sometimes I wonder if our house is too much of a wedding shrine, LOL.
I enjoy seeing pictures from trips because I can go back and remember how great feeling it was.

I think it’s ok to have pictures of you and your loved one around the house, as long as you don’t go over board and have one in every nook and cranny! Also put some pictures of you and your friends and family around.

OUr ketubah is going to have a picture of us so I think it would be safe to say we are okay with it. lol

Isn’t it normal to have pics of the family in the house? That’s what my family’s always done.
Fiance and I don’t have many framed pics in our current home but we still have a lot of us. Actually out of 15 framed pics, 10 are of us.

We have a couple.
Moderndaisy: I’ve been the renter during a sale before. They didn’t tell us about the pictures, so maybe that happened for them? Having to clean and get out of the way for showings and open houses when you’re a renter is really annoying…

Family pics yes, but what I’m asking about specifcally is pictures of you and your SO. Those out number all the other pics by quiet a bit in our house.

Right now most of our pics comprise mostly of me and him. We have a couple of our immediate families, and then one of our pets, but otherwise it is all us. I guess I also have some paintings of birds in my bird themed room (trust me, it looks more tasteful than it sounds :)) and we plan to get some other paintings, but we are poor. Otherwise, I think it’ll just be us until the baby arrives. Then I imagine it will be all about him or her.

I’m in my living room and here is our breakdown:
4 metal signs; 1 wood sign; out of 34 pictures 12 are of us from NYC, 6 are of us from our wedding, 1 is from when we first started dating and 3 are of just DH. The rest are either pictures of family and non people/detail shots from our honeymoon and wedding.
