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 Robyn and Joe

Expecting couple Robyn and Joe had not planned on taking maternity photos, but when Maria Bentley from STUDIO 1208 offered to do a shoot, they decided to reconsider:

"Maria had taken such beautiful pictures of my cousin's wedding and really captured the feeling of the day through all the little details. I'm a details person and thought a maternity shoot that highlighted my baby shower theme, the nursery decor and and our potential baby names (given we were not finding out the sex) would be something fun for my husband and I to do. And after spending some time talking through my ideas with Maria before our shoot I knew we had made the right decision thanks to picking such an amazing photographer."

We could not agree more! The little details are so fun while helping to tell their story. For example, we love the dueling college onesies, the fun shot of Robyn holding the "How to be a Gentleman" book, and the cute "boy or girl?" banner. Maria has captured such beautiful images of this stylish couple! See more in the full gallery, and check back later today to see their modern, gender-neutral nursery.
