Though it may be totally weird to be over the top jealous of a baby, this girl right here is guilty. That polka dotted wallpaper? The fringed mobile? Can you really blame me? Sweet miss Ivy is the most on-trend baby in all the land! Seriously though. Captured by Katie Joyner Photography, there’s a whole mess of lovely right here in the overflowing gallery.
Miss Ivy June was only a few weeks old when this photo shoot took place. It includes images from her nursery, as well as our bedroom. I love the intimacy of these photos. I can see the patience and love that exudes from my husband; having a baby really does make you love your husband more than you could have ever imagined. It makes me think of how new and exciting everything was when we first brought her home.
As a wedding designer, one could imagine the color palettes and themes that swirled through my head when planning her nursery. One thing was for certain – I had to put polka dots on her wall. Everything else fell into place after that. All in all, her room is special because it is surrounded by some of the most important things I own: photos of both of my grandmothers (she is named after my maternal grandmother Ivy), my paternal grandmother’s perfectly starched handkerchiefs, sketches I drew in college, and other hand made items my husband and I created together, just for her.
