Fall Photoshoot Inspiration for your small business.

As most of you know, I own a small home decor shop and one of my favourite things has been planning photoshoots! This fall I decided it would be amazing to plan a collaborative shoot with a bunch of incredible local makers and businesses, and the end result was incredible. Here are the photos from the shoot, all of the makers & photographer are listed below!

Twin Nursery Tour!

Hi lovelies! 

Here is the room that will be home to our baby girls when they decide to arrive! As I'm writing this, I'm 37 weeks pregnant with these two girlies and I'm just itching to rock them in our glider and dress them in all of their sweet clothes! 

The way their room came together has just been absolutely amazing. I picked up little things here and there with no real theme in mind, but the way the colours and gifts we received all fit together in this room with such ease and I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out! Every time I walk in I just feel so relaxed and happy. I love it. 

I painted this room long before we were expecting these babies but with the thought in mind that it would be a nursery in the future. I'm still so happy with the colour we chose, the pops of pink make it so girly, but it could have worked for a little boy's room too! 

We got the curtains from Fabric Land and my mom (the incredibly talented, crafty lady that made this room come together) hemmed them up so they would fit with the changing table there. The change table was handed down to us from my sweet sister and her babe Sadie, and the little rug in front of it is from Ikea! It was like $4.00, how could I say no?!

I admit, my plans for this room had to change when we found out it would be the room for two babies and not just one, but I'm super impressed that we made everything fit! Two cribs, a glider, side table, change table, dresser, diaper genie, laundry hamper, and even their bassinet can fit in here! It was a bit of tetrus, but I'm so happy we were able to make it work. 

Their crib quilt and little knitted blankets hanging on their cribs were both made by my absolutely wonderful mom, the twins will have those blankets for ever and ever and I know they will cherish them just as much as I do. Speaking of my momma, our bassinet was hers when she was just a tiny baby! I love it so much, it's absolutely perfect and the fact that it has been kept in my family since my mom was just a baby is so special. 

Our glider was a gift from my aunts, uncles, mom, dad, and sister. It is so incredibly comfortable and I know we'll be spending hours upon hours rocking in that chair. I thought I might need a little side table for the long nights of breastfeeding and snuggles to keep some essentials on (hello lip chap and nipple cream) and this table we had hiding in the basement was the most perfect fit! Kyle made it in high school and it has just been sitting in a corner forever. 

Quick story time, we chose a giraffe to be these babies' "theme" animal when we were on our honeymoon in Florida! When we were strolling through the Naples Zoo Gift Shop Kyle said, "lets pick out a stuffed animal to take home." My heart was set on the giraffe, and when we finally decided to choose, we said that this would be the first item we would buy for our future baby.  Now we have it sitting up on their shelf above their closet! But that is how we decided to include giraffes in their little nursery and it just makes me so happy to think that these babies were thought of way back on our honeymoon before they even existed! 

Without further ado, here is our twin girls' nursery! 

Pretty presents from Spain! They're absolutely stunning I can't wait for the twins to fit these!
