Nusery Photos

I am really proud of myself. I love baby nurseries and when I was pregnant I had a sweet, simple vision for what I wanted Henry's nursery to look like. I am almost done. Just a few more finishing touches and I can show you the whole room.

When I was pregnant, I knew I wanted my amazing friend and extremely talented photographer to take my birth photos for me. I wanted the experience of giving birth to be documented through photos. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results.....every time I look at these photos I am reminded sweetly, of my baby's birth.

Here are the details:
Pictures: Black and White Photos 12 x 12. (Costco Printing, I think they do a great job)
Frames: IKEA, Ribba Frames 20 1/2 x 20 1/2
Matting: Roberts Craft framing department. I picked out the matting and had them cut the mats to fit my photos.

With so many precious photos to pick from, I like that in a few months I can switch these out and enjoy a whole new set of birth images. (Descriptions from L-R)
  • They have just given me Henry. He is all wrapped and has his little hat on. It is really hitting me. He is all mine.
  • I swooned when I first saw this photo. Adam and I becoming parents all over again.
  • I am a tough sell liking a photo of myself, but this one I could stare at all day. I love my serene face. You would have never guessed a few minutes before I had an unmedicated birth! I am at peace.

I love your style...the dresser, the garland, and the quilts! Beautiful!
What a great idea to put the birth day photos up too! I may do that in the room I have designated for the grandkids(One photo each).
It's kind of tricky to make a room for both genders.
This year we are getting three more:)
