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.

Stella's Nursery & Newborn Session

If you love mid-century modern like we do, you will adore baby Stella's gorgeous nursery, captured in beautiful detail by Natalie Moser Photography. Parents Yvonne and Shane live in an Eichler home in Orange, CA, and so it made sense to use this as the inspiration for the style of the nursery. Some amazing vintage pieces have been mixed with more affordable coordinating new items. There is a lot to love here, but my favorite little touch is the addition of the vintage toys on the shelves. Natalie Moser Photography also included some gorgeous newborn photos so we can take a peek at the little gal who lives in this retro space. We adore this combo nursery and newborn session!
