Clark's Nursery and Newborn Session

Clark's Nursery and Newborn Session

Brittany Rossman of Moetic Films set out to create a nursery for her son Clark that wasn't too cutesie or babyish, and that he could enjoy for years to come. She pulled it of so perfectly with this fresh, fun room that is also filled with special pieces connected with stories they hold close to their hearts. Brittany shared:

"For example, the arrows in the corner are his great grandfathers and the DIY sign above his crib is part of my husband's favorite hymn. I also had my husband do a drawing of Clark on a moose that hangs above his corner shelf of books. It was amazing how things just started falling into place once I picked the direction I wanted to take it. I really tried to do most projects myself and found a lot of inspiration through Pinterest and Etsy. I also live in a town with a pretty amazing Goodwill. Early on in the pregnancy I was shopping for an arrow stencil for the accent wall behind his crib. My husband then encouraged me to make my own to save some money and I am so happy I did. It was a labor of love but I really got to make it my own. Of course for the big projects like the locker refurbish I had to call on my husband and my dad. A lot of the items are thrifted and I was able to stick to a tight budget of $700."

Jamie Jones captured all of the photos, including these beautiful shots of Clark himself, along with his mama! See all of the photos submitted over in the full gallery.
