Real Nurseries: Weston

Our good friend Jessi had adorable Weston last April, and she shared his nursery with us which we’re now sharing with you!  Not wanting to spend the time and money on painting (also, they live in a rental where painting isn’t allowed), Jessi used the accessories in Weston’s room and wall decals to provide the color and warmth she wanted. The result is a very streamlined, modern nursery with a …continue…

3…2…1…Blast Off! Outer Space Nursery Mood Board

(image credits below) This week we have a nursery inspired by space travel!  I found the rocket night light when I was at the MoMA store the other weekend, and decided I just had to create a nursery for it. The result is a sweet little patriotic modern rocket nursery!  This nursery is dedicated to my good friend Meredith, who loves all things space. Now for the breakdown: 1.  Planet …continue…

Goodbye ponytails, hello dancing

(all photos courtesy of my sister) Meet Claire, my squishably adorable niece whom I can’t get enough of. She’s sweet, a total goofball, and can melt your heart in less than one second. Claire also has very slow growing hair–she turned 2 in October and has yet to get a haircut. Because of this, we haven’t had much “fun” with her hair–clips are a relatively recent thing and ponytails are …continue…

Bump Day: Moné @ 33 Weeks

This last weekend Moné and I got together for what will probably be our second to last photo shoot before her baby girl arrives!  We were lucky enough to have her mom and husband joining us for a few photos, which always makes for an extra special shoot. Moné simply radiates with pregnancy, but especially when her husband comes around–you can tell they are just so anxious and excited to …continue…

Our precious gift: Jackson’s Birth Announcement

Because of all we were going through leading up to Jackson’s birth I didn’t have time to prepare his birth announcement ahead of time, see yesterday’s post.  In the end it worked out because I was able to incorporate his birth date (and time) into the announcement.  We also included a moving announcement in the envelope. I wanted to create a card that felt more personal than what is available …continue…

Two months in — reflecting on the months before.

Happy two months to Jackson Riley! I finally got the baby announcements out a few weeks ago and it felt great to get that off of my plate.  I had every intention of designing the announcement and compiling all of the addresses before Jackson’s arrival — but we still don’t even have a nursery.  Life was a bit hectic, to say the least, in the last months before Jackson was …continue…

Bump Day: Erica @ 39 Weeks

Well, this is our last installment of Erica’s maternity photos! There will always be more Jackson, but this is it for Erica’s baby bump. These were taken a week and a half before she had Jackson, and about a week before her due date. Doesn’t she look incredible? And a little recap of Erica through the months…

Lee Family Portraits, Part II

As promised, here is Part II of the Lee family portraits!  As a recap, I photographed this beautiful family last Saturday at Crissy Field in San Francisco.  Alisha is 39 weeks along with her second, and we spent a few hours hanging out at the beach capturing pictures of her and her growing family. We had to keep chasing the sun (it was setting and we kept getting caught in …continue…
