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.

1950s Insipred Maternity & Family Session

The idea for this 1950s inspired maternity and family shoot hit photographer Tasha Herrgott of Red Bird Hills as she was driving past a yard with an old clothesline. She happened to mention it to her hair stylist Sara, who is also a favorite client, and she fell in love with the idea, too--so they made it happen! Sara jumped right in and had custom dresses made from vintage patterns to fit the look perfectly. Not only is Sara (and her adorable family, husband Jon and kids Olivia and Sullivan) absolutely beautiful, but the photos are gorgeous! See all the photos in the full gallery.
