Baby Blakeley maternity session... a bit late.

I took these photos a year ago! Shocking, I know.
I can't believe Blakeley will be a year old next month, rock on baby girl!
For now please enjoy viewing her parents, back when they had sleep.

Everly's Nursery

As promised, some pictures of little Everly's room.
Baby E in her crib, playing and being adorable.  Animal photographs by Sharon Montrose.

The hallway to her room. The valance above the window is from a little french
store in La Jolla.  The toy basket is from Ikea.

Right: The ABC poster is by Rifle Paper Co. Left: Her changing table and dresser.

Left: these shelves are to the right of her dresser and filled with fun mementos and treasures. Right: A letterpress
card that we got in a little bookstore in NYC when we found out we were pregnant.  (the whale on the shelf above
is also a letterpress card from the same store. The white paper in the center is a white embossed alphabet that my
mom brought home from France from a 100 yr old paper mill.)

Everly playing. Here you can see her lamp from Ikea and the bookshelves we painted on the right. The shelves are actually spice racks that we repurposed and hung kind of low so she can reach them when she starts to walk.  (not my idea, I saw it on a blog)

Left: Owl photograph by Sharon Montrose. Right: Her fun animal rug that we paired with a sheepskin rug for extra coziness.

Left: Reading and rocking. Right: a close up of the painting my parents got for her room. Its from a little shop in downtown Orange, CA.

Left: Close up of her bedding by Auggie. Right: Her bunny nightlight, which we Love.

happy baby girl!

These photographs already seem outdated to me since I rearrange and mix things up on a daily basis, but you get the idea. Her room only has the one window (good for sleeping, bad for photography and natural light) so the light you see here is mostly from recessed lighting.

Do you Love Everly's artwork and can't wait to have some just like it in your home?
For more information of the animal photographs visit Sharon Montrose's Animal Print shop here.

Baby Everly's nursery inspiration

Deciding on what your baby's nursery is going to look like is a bit overwhelming. First off, there are so many designs and color schemes out there that you could spend your entire 40 weeks looking through them and never actually decorate your little ones room! So when I started looking at designs for our baby girl's room I decided to go with things that I loved instead of one very specific theme or direction. (inspired by my friend Monique and her adorable son's room) I also wanted pieces that she could keep throughout her childhood, that didn't scream baby, that way the room doesn't have to dramatically change with every stage. So here is a little sneak peek at the pieces that we were inspired by for her room.
Next up, pictures of her cool digs!

Sources clockwise from top left: abc letters, whale mobile, bunny lamp (was from Anthropologie but is no longer available), pink bedding, grey dresser (was from Ikea and is no longer available), animal rug, white jenny lind crib, colorful banner (no longer available but these are similar ones).

mom love.

It's been so long since I have gotten to blog so it seems fitting (given the reason) to start with a post about mommyhood. I wanted to share some sweet photographs of mom's and their kids that I have taken in the past year. Some candid, some posed, all filled with love, support, and kindness. Happy early Mother's day to all the moms, mother-in-laws, grandmas, and great grandmas. We love you and appreciate all you do!

and here is our little baby E taking a nap on her Great Mimi (Great Grandma), happy as can be!
