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.

Expecting Couple Melissa & Josh

This gorgeous mom-to-be is Melissa of Soul Mates Photography. Melissa and her husband Josh headed out to a beach by the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon with photographer Paige Jones, who captured them so beautifully in this sunset shoot. There is so much natural beauty, warmth, and visual drama in these images! They are even better at full size, so stop by the gallery where you can see each larger, along with more not seen here.
