Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Elliot's Nursery & Newborn Session

This session has a little of everything: an adorable newborn, his super sweet parents, and the beautiful space he lives in. Laurie Ann Kleinhenz of bee photographie captured it all with these gorgeous images. Parents Mia & Stephen welcomed Elliot into the world about one week before this shoot. Elliot's parents custom designed his inviting nursery. Dad Stephen built the wall frames from driftwood while mom Mia hand painted the sailboat on the wall and sewed the sailboat mobile. You cannot beat those kinds of thoughtful, handmade touches in a nursery for your little one. Love! It's obvious in the family photos, too, how much love is in this new little family.
