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.

Elliott's Sweet DIY Nursery and Newborn Session

This shabby chic, DIY nursery for adorable baby girl Elliott is so warm and personal! Korie Lynn Photography captured this beautiful space along with little Elliott herself and proud parents Jannah and Joe. Surprisingly, this was photographer Korie Lynn Photography's first newborn shoot!

Both parents had a part in making this room extra special. Dad Joe made the precious mobile with a hanging birdhouse, branches, and little flying birds. Mom Jannah created silhouette art featuring all of the important people in Elliott's life. Over her crib hang her parents and grandparents, and over the changing table hang all of her aunts and uncles. The changing table was also a DIY project: They found the piece on Craigslist and then painted it green. See more from this room and this sweet family in the full gallery.
