When we first spotted an image from this newborn in-home lifestyle session and ADORABLE nursery on our Instagram feed, we knew we had to reach out to photographer Abby Willtrout of Simply Gracious Photography for more! And just like her name implies, she graciously shared the entire session with us as well as some of the sources for this super sweet nursery decor. We are excited to share the images and resources with you today as part of our Resourceful Wednesday Series. Whether you are looking for nursery design inspiration or newborn and lifestyle photography inspiration, you’ll find it here!

Newborn In-Home Lifestyle Session | Simply Gracious Photography

What We Love:

Abby: I loved this session because last year I was able to capture their engagement, small intimate wedding & reception over spring + summer. So, when they contacted me this year to do their maternity & newborn session, I was so thrilled & excited to get to work with them again. Their home is gorgeous & offers so much beautiful natural light. I just simply let them do their thing with their sweet girl…snuggling on her, staring at her adorable little features, etc.

For this session I used my Nikon d700 with the Nikon 35mm 1.4G lens. We did this in the comfort of their own home in Des Peres, Missouri.

Lisa & Rachel: Lifestyle Photography and Newborn Photography go hand-in-hand. What is better than natural light, naturally “posed” images and natural interactions and emotions when it comes to photographing families with new babies. There is so much love to capture and Abby did a fantastic job with these images. And of course we love the nursery decor – from the vignette on the wall, to the painted stripes to the furniture and all the little adorable touches around the room. And could you just die from that pink ruffle diaper cover and “hello world” onesie?! LOVE! We are certain Abby’s clients will cherish this images for years to come. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us, Abby!
