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.

Vintage-Perfect Newborn Session

When we saw all the vintage details in these beautiful photos by SugarLeaf Photography, we were instantly smitten. Photographer Lexia Frank teamed up with baby Paige's mom Allison to create the perfect timeless, vintage setting for this newborn session. This shoot took place at the family's home using only natural light, keeping little Paige as comfortable as possible.

Lexia shared with us how putting this shoot together was a bit like a treasure hunt. She found the old baby scale and the old blue chair (for only $1!) at a thrift store, and the old suitcase on the curb of her neighborhood that someone had set out to be discarded. Such a lucky find! They wanted every item to be truly vintage rather than a reproduction. As Lexia said, "Pairing old items with a new baby really speaks to generations and the passing of time." Love this so much!See more photos from this session in the full gallery!
