Vintage Americana Themed Maternity Shoot

This vintage Americana themed maternity shoot, capturing gorgeous mom-to-be Adrienne Jopp of The Paper Suite Creative Design Studio, is so over-the-top darling I can hardly stand it! Adrienne grew up in Canada but has an American dad and has always adored the South and anything Americana themed. Adrienne shared, "While sailing up the Mississippi River in Louisiana this past February, our little boy was conceived, so it only seemed fitting to add a little vintage Americana theme into our maternity shoot." To bring this red, white, and blue vision to life, she worked with Studio 1079 for the beautiful photos and many of the amazing vintage props, Rook and Rose Floral Design Boutique for the pretty blooms, and Jen Clark Makeup for the perfect look. She added a few sweet, personal details, such as the blue suede baby shoes that belonged to her husband as a baby, a vintage brooch given to her grandmother by Adrienne's great grandmother, and a quilt made by her Aunt. The cherry on top was the absolutely charming, vibrant birth announcement story created by The Paper Suite Creative Design Studio that is ready to go as soon as they have the birth date! There are even more stunning images in the gallery, so please do not hesitate to stop there before you go for more!
