I am a detail person. I love perfectly placed knick-knacks, spending hours on the internet for the perfect [insert various detail item here]. I love when things have been well thought out and when each piece of a room (or wedding for that matter) has a purpose, a meaning and a story behind it. This kind of stuff is important to me, so naturally I’m drawn to photograph it all.
When we discovered we were pregnant, we knew we didn’t want to know if we were having a boy or girl – it just didn’t matter to us. But we also knew we wanted to claim a space in our home specifically for our new baby, whom we lovingly referred to as ‘Little t’ at the time. Devin and I combed antique shops, made various elements and collected pieces from our own childhoods to put together the ‘gender neutral’ space for our new bundle. Although the room was supposed to have a gender neutral appeal, I was convinced from day one that we were having a boy. And as you can see, I tended to favor the masculine in our design. Thankfully, Everett came out a boy and he loves his room! It’s evolved over the past year, but this is what it looked like when we brought him home from the hospital.
